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

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:

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.  .
