Model Selection for School Reopening

Reopening model selection and info for families

8/12/2020 Dear Castle Hill Middle School family, I hope this email finds you well. Thank you to all the families who submitted the community reopening survey. We had well over 200 responses from our school, and 65% of families indicated their preference for model 1A. PS 106, MS 127, and Linden Tree have all selected model 1A. We will make sure that families in the community with multiple children in the same or multiple schools can be on the same schedule.   For this model, there will be two blended learning cohorts - one will attend on Tuesdays,Thursdays, and alternating Mondays. The other will attend on Wednesdays, Fridays, and alternating Mondays. On the other days, cohorts will have lessons and assignments remotely. The school day will be shorter - from 8:30am-2:00 pm. By August 26 we will inform you which days to attend if you are attending in person. If there are certain days you would like for your child's schedule, please email Ms. Francis, the parent coordinator, at with your child's name, grade, and preferred days. So far a little over 30% of families have opted for all remote instruction. If you wish to still opt for all remote instruction, please email Ms. Francis with your child's name and grade.  Later this month I will send more information regarding schedule and instructional model for blended and all remote instruction.  I look forward to working together to ensure all of our students are safe and achieve success. Harry Sherman

Principal, MS 127
