IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE CHANCELLOR


Dear Families,

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

All of us at the Department of Education have been so proud to witness the joy of students and educators reuniting and learning together this year. We have been the only major school district in the nation to reopen our buildings. The benefit to hundreds of thousands of students is incredible, as school communities have reconnected in person for learning, growing, and supporting one another.

All along, we have kept health and safety at the forefront of everything we do. That includes carefully monitoring COVID-19 transmission rates across the city and, when necessary in response to infections, temporarily closing our school buildings and transitioning students to fully remote learning.

Outdoor, creative play is essential!

At Sunset Park Public School 169, we believe that children need to get outside and play because outdoor play is crucial to the academic success of our students. And the American Academy of Pediatrics agrees! A recently published study shows that outdoor, creative play is essential to children’s intellectual, social, and emotional development.
