In-Person Classes Resuming Thursday 2/25/2020!

After much wait and anticipation, in-person classes are starting up again for those students who opted in for in-person classes.

Important Announcement from Principal Annello re In Person Classes Resuming on 2/25/2021

Dear MS 67Q School Community, 

We hope you are well.  As we celebrate Respect for All Week this week, below are a number of important announcement and updates:  

Reopening for In-Person Learning Update 

The return date for students who have chosen in-person learning is Thursday, February 25, 2021.  Students who have chosen all-remote learning (in cohort D) will remain all-remote.  We are working on the details and planning for how many days per week students will be able to return.  As you may recall, we were prepared for an in-person return (50% of the days) using Model 1B.  We are currently working to see if it is possible to bring back all blended students five days per week.  We will share more details as they become available, and we will continue to prioritize the health and safety of the members of our school community.  For students planning to return to in-person learning, parental consent for COVID-19 must be submitted prior to the return date.  In order to assist with our planning efforts, please finalize your decision about consent as soon as possible.  We will provide updates in the coming days and weeks as we move forward toward our return to in-person learning date. 

Parental Consent for Weekly COVID-19 Testing for In-Person Students 

Parental consent for in-school COVID-19 testing must be submitted for students expecting to return for in-person learning.  It is easiest and most efficient to submit parental consent through students’ NYC Schools Accounts.  If you have questions about NYC Schools Accounts, please reach out to our Jenny Cho, our Parent Coordinator, at xcho@schools.nyc.gov.Parental consent can also be submitted by scanning the completed consent form and emailing it to covidtest@ms67q.com.  Please note students will be placed in all-remote cohort D if parental consent is not submitted prior to the return of in-person learning.  The parental consent form can be found at the following link:  

https://www.schools.nyc.gov/school-year-20-21/return-to-school-2020/health-and-safety/covid-19-testing

Black History Month, Respect for All Week, and Lunar New Year

From Principal Annello:

“Dear MS 67Q School Community,

We hope you are well.  The month of February and this week bring our instructional focus of creating and maintaining a supportive learning for all students even more to our attention.  We foster and promote an inclusive environment, and this week we celebrate Respect for All Week.  Please see below for our themed days aimed at promoting respect and unity among all members of our school community:

Monday, February 8th: School Spirit Day (Wear our school colors of navy blue and gold to demonstrate the unity within our school community)

Tuesday, February 9th: Acts of Kindness Day (Engage in act(s) of kindness toward others in our school community and at home)

Wednesday, February 10th: Upstander Day (Wear blue to show your support for putting an end to bullying and standing up to those that engage in bullying behaviors)

Thursday, February 11th: Diversity Day (Celebrate what makes you unique and show appreciation for the uniqueness of others- for example, wear the colors and traditional clothing of your heritage and culture).

If students would like to share pictures via email of their participation on one of the themed days, please email your pictures to a member of the Administrative Team, our Parent Coordinator Jenny Cho (xcho@schools.nyc.gov), or our Dean Michael Viruet (mviruet2@schools.nyc.gov).

In addition, we celebrate Black History Month throughout the month of February.  We recognize the achievements, accomplishments, and lasting impacts of Black Americans past and present.  Connections within units and lessons will be made, and we understand the importance of the unity and inclusion we are promoting within our school community expanding into our current society. 

Lunar New Year will be celebrated this Friday, February 12.  We join with members of our school community who will be ringing in the Year of the Ox.  Also, please note there will be no remote teaching and learning this Friday, February 12.  

Thank you for your continued support and efforts.  

The MS 67Q Administrative Team”

Announcement re Return to In-Person Instructions 2.8.2021

From Principal Annello:

Dear MS 67Q School Community,


We hope you are well.  Attached to this email is a letter from Chancellor Carranza regarding the return to in-person learning of students in grades 6-8 and students at our school.  The return date for students who have chosen in-person learning is Thursday, February 25, 2021.  Students who have chosen all-remote learning (in cohort D) will remain all-remote.  We are working on the details and planning for how many days per week students will be able to return.  As you may recall, we were prepared for an in-person return (50% of the days) using Model 1B.  We are currently working to see if it is possible to bring back all blended students five days per week.  We will share more details as they become available, and we will continue to prioritize the health and safety of the members of our school community.  


For students planning to return to in-person learning, parental consent for COVID-19 must be submitted prior to the return date.  In order to assist with our planning efforts, please finalize your decision about consent as soon as possible using the following information:



Parental Consent for Weekly COVID-19 Testing for In-Person Students

We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.  Depending on our availability of devices (iPads, laptops, etc.) for individual students who are returning in-person, we may ask students to bring their own devices to school upon our return.  If your child has a device from our school or the DOE that was provided to them to work remotely, your child would be expected to bring the device when coming to school in-person.


We want to thank you for your patience, collaboration, and flexibility.  We look forward to sharing more details in the coming days and weeks about both all-remote and in-person learning moving forward.  A more extensive “Updates and Information” message will be sent later this evening.  .

Please all instruction for all students will take place remotely tomorrow (Tuesday, February 2, 2021).  We will be following the same schedules that have been followed since we went all-remote on Thursday, November 19, 2020.  However, please note that due to the expected severe weather conditions, Learning Bridges programs and school food distribution sites will be closed tomorrow (Tuesday, February 2, 2021).


Remote Clubs and Activities 

Our flyer with our list of remote clubs and activities was sent last weekend via PupilPath.  It is also attached to this message.   Our remote clubs and activities are beginning this week. The flyer includes information about the clubs and activities and virtual registration links.  There is also a spreadsheet with other information about the remote clubs and activities attached to this message.  If you have questions about a specific remote club or activity, please reach out to the staff member facilitator at the email address listed on the spreadsheet.


Fall 2020 School Experience Survey 
The Fall 2020 School Experience Survey is now open until Friday, February 5.All teachers, students, and parents can take the survey at the link below.Please take some time to complete the survey as we will analyzing the data to help us continue to grow and improve.The survey data will be more valuable if many teachers, parents, and students take it.The link is below: 

https://www.schools.nyc.gov/learning/learn-at-home/fall-2020-school-experience-survey 


i-Ready Benchmark Assessments (Monday, February 1 through Friday, February 12)

During this week for ELA (February 1, 2021) and next week for Math (February 8, 2021), we would like to partner with you again in having all students remotely complete an online ELA and Math i-Ready Benchmark. Since the beginning of the year, students have completed their initial diagnostic assessments and have completed adaptive ELA/MATH lessons. Parents also should have received the i-Ready diagnostic report from the school via Pupilpath. The February Benchmark will allow students, teachers, and parents to see the growth that has been made since the beginning of the year. Like the first assessment, please allow 45 minutes (one sitting or in increments) for your child to take the benchmark. Students should complete the benchmark independently and the completion, and not the actual assessment grade, of the benchmark will count for a grade in ELA and Math for Marking Period 3. Please help us ensure that your child takes their time while completing the assessment so that they may receive the most accurate results possible. 

To access the Benchmark:
1.  Log into TeachHub
2.  Use Student NYC students account 
3.  Click the Clever app (Big C) 
4.  Click the I-Ready app (tri-colored cube) 
5.  Click on Reading or Math.  
Should you have any questions or issues, please do not hesitate to reach out to Ms. Lam (ELA) or Mr. Annello (Math).
