UPDATES TO SPRING VACATION WEEK:
As you may have seen on your Launch calendar, next week was the start of our spring break. There are some adjustments based on guidance from New York State and the Department of Education.
There will not be school or classwork assigned on Thursday or Friday, April 9 and 10. Beginning Monday, April 13, we will be assigning daily classwork as usual in our distance learning program. There will be crew assignments as well.
PROGRESS REPORTS and REPORT CARDS:
We sent out progress reports to families and to students earlier this week. Students were graded entirely on work completion to recognize and honor their dedication to learning and the scale for grades was 1-4. If you did not receive your child’s progress report, please contact Jhonell Williams, our Director of School Operations at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718-715-1178.
