Update on Hybrid Learning Launch:
At Uncommon Schools NYC, we remain deeply committed to providing you, our families, with an in-person Hybrid learning option. We know that our scholars learn best when they are in-person with their teachers, and we know that many of you have asked us to provide you with this learning option.
After further consideration, we have decided to take a phased-in approach to re-opening our Uncommon NYC schools. While several of our Uncommon NYC high schools will still open on the current timeline, we will be delaying our in-person launch at most of our schools until January 20, 2021.
While our buildings are ready to safely welcome your scholar back, and we have met all of our Health & Safety criteria, we have made the decision to slow down and learn from the handful of schools that will be opening at the end of this month. We are confident that this additional time will allow us to further refine our routines & systems and our academic approach to Hybrid instruction.
Please know that our goal remains to honor the choice of our hybrid families and open in-person in all of our NYC schools this January, as long as the public health conditions allow us to do so.
In the meantime, we are committed to providing your student with a world-class remote learning experience. Please refer to the information shared by your child’s school last week for their school-specific re-opening timeline. If you have any questions, please reach out directly to your school leaders.
Meals During Remote Learning:
Remote students or parents/guardians may pick up meals at most DOE school buildings. Meals for students will be available on school days only from 9AM - 12PM. Families can visit the take-out meals page to find a take-out meal location near them. If a student or family is unable to pick up meals from 9AM to 12PM, they can pick up meals from 3pm to 5pm at several community meal sites throughout the city. Community food sites can be found here. Please note that MOST schools will not be open from 3pm to 5pm for meal pickup, please check this link to find a location near you that will be open during the evening hours.
