Health Screening Resources
Health Screening At Home
When you do the health screening at home, you or your child need to provide the results of the screening either by showing the email on a smartphone or a printout of the results before entering the school building. ALL blended learning students will receive an oral thermometer in their first week of in-person instruction in case you need one to check your child’s temperature at home.

The DOE, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA), is offering a series of conversational-English classes for New York City families. During these three sessions, families will practice their English-language conversational skills, learn about the free city services available to all New Yorkers, and connect with other families across the city. This course will focus on how families can access NYC services concerning career support, education, and workers’ rights. Please see the attached flyer.

If you plan for your children to continue with 100% remote instruction for the
2020-2021 school year, you must complete this extremely important survey for
the NYC Department of Education, as this will be used by the I.S. 303 staff to
plan accordingly for the upcoming school year.
This fall, your child’s school will offer a combination of in-person and remote learning. You can choose from two options:
1. 100% Remote Learning: Opt in to have your child learn 100% remotely (all online, from home). To choose this option for your child, fill out and submit this form HERE. If you are having difficulties completing this form online, call 311.
2. Combination of In-Person and Remote Learning: Your child can follow their school’s schedule, a mix of in-person days at school and remote learning days from home. To choose this option, no action is needed: your school will be in touch about its schedule and programming plans in the coming weeks. Please visit the Return to School 2020 pages on the website for more information.
***Please note if you decide to keep them home for 100% remote instruction, there will be other opportunities during the school year to change your preference and send them in part time.***
Please let us know immediately which of these two options you will choose by completing the Learning Preference Survey or call 718-935-2200 by August 7 so we can plan accordingly.

Message from the Principal
I’d like to extend to all of our students, families and friends a warm welcome to our virtual classrooms. Administrators, teachers and staff have worked very hard to ensure that even in the midst of all the changes we’ve all endured, there is stability and continuity in the instruction delivered via our professionals here at IS303. This has been a clear example of not only beginning with the end in mind but also putting first things first. We all synergized and proactively supported each other to make virtual classrooms a reality at our school.
As the instructional leader, my message to parents and students is a very simple one- stay safe, healthy and focused. Now more than ever we will rely on our parents who are our partners to ensure that they supervise that our students are logging on and completing assignments. We will continue teaching and our children will continue learning via. We are extremely excited about this new venture and we look forward to seeing the beautiful opportunities this will yield. Seeking first to understand then to be understood will be critical to working together and learning from each other. I’m sure our students will share with teachers some of their skills and knowledge using online platforms which will only make our offerings better.Our motto continues to stand true now more than ever “High Expectations, Children First, No Excuses.” There is no better time to put first things first than now! Together we will accomplish our very important mission of educating our students and it is up to each and everyone of us to get this done.
Finally, please remember to sharpen the saw while still practicing social distancing. We want to all stay healthy and keep our family members healthy. Take care of yourselves and never forget that here at 303 it is our pleasure to serve YOU.
During this extremely trying time, I would like to wish everybody health and peace. It may seem daunting with the current situation in the country and especially New York City, but one should not lose faith. Use these days at home as a way to self reflect, build a stronger resolution and begin a better chapter coming out of this pandemic. With every great energy you encounter, pay it forward and the good karma will come back to you in a positive cycle. Continue to check on each other and offer compassion ,since everyone is not as fortunate, but they can be as loved and respected.
Be well and see you all soon.
It has been almost a month since we have seen each other. I hope you are well and doing the best under such difficult conditions. After this pandemic settles, you will notice what amazing and resilient people you have become and I, for one, cannot wait to meet the NEW you! My prayer remains for you and your family to stay well, stay home and stay safe!
Today will never come again.
Be a blessing. Be a friend.
Take time to care. Let your words heal, and not wound.
