Dear PS 51 Bronx STEM and Arts Academy Families:
I hope everyone was able to enjoy a very safe Thanksgiving with your loved ones. As you may be aware, the Mayor has proposed to re-open school buildings as of December 7, 2020. Please read the Chancellor’s letter (linked in the previous post).
The following information is important for students attending in-person learning: “Any student in grade 1 or higher returning to school buildings must submit a consent form for COVID-19 testing in school by their first day back in school buildings. [Students] without consent forms on file, who do not have a medical or disability- based exemption submitted, must be moved to fully remote instruction.
