Information For Parents

"...On September 8th, educators return to school, and will collaborate to prepare for the school year. On September 16th , schools will begin engaging students in learning and orienting them to the new school year prior to the first in-person day on September 21st. They will use this remote launch to engage students in health and safety procedures, and talk to students about connectivity for remote learning, wellness and social emotional health heading into an unprecedented school year, and to ensure students are ready to learn. An important focus of this orientation period will be on the social and emotional well-being of students and families and provide an opportunity for deeper understanding of the ways this unprecedented school year will work." 


Today, we conducted a building walk-through with our custodial staff and a representative from the Brooklyn South Field Support Center.  I am pleased to inform you that our ventilation system meets all required guidelines, our custodial staff did an outstanding job this summer deep cleaning the building, we have received almost all of the required PPE equipment and signage (additional anticipated deliveries this week) and we have all safety protocols in place following DOE and DOH guidelines specific to Cavallaro, which will be shared with our staff upon their return on September 8th. 


Next week, you will be receiving communication from us providing you with the following information:

- Safety and health guidelines including arrival/dismissal procedures

- Blended Learning/Full Remote daily school schedules

- Official Class programs

- Google classroom link

- Pupil path registration information

- Emergency Blue Card procedures

- Attendance Procedures

- Tentative school calendar 

- On-line instructional supports and program log-in information

- Instructional expectations

- 6th grade orientation


As you know, new information is constantly unfolding, so we really are trying to be as thorough as possible as we communicate to you.
