Hello HSSL Student and Families,

I hope that this letter finds you in good health. Here at HSSL we want to ensure that all of our students and families are well aware of what is happening as it relates to the COVID-19 outbreak. As communicated by Mayor DeBlasio and Chancellor Carranza, schools will be closed starting Monday March 16, 2020, and expected to be reopened Monday April 20, 2020. During this time of closure, we will be transitioning to remote learning starting from Monday, March 23, 2020. While we understand that there will be inevitable challenges, our hope is to provide continuity of instruction and social emotional support. 

During the past week, teachers and staff have engaged in professional learning and instructional planning to make this transition as accessible as possible. All classwork, projects and assessments will be available through digital platforms like Google Classroom, Schoology, Castle Learning, etc. You can also refer to our school website for assignments organized by individual teachers. It is the expectation that students are checking in with their teachers daily and completing assignments in a timely manner. I encourage all parents/ guardians to check in with your child’s progress frequently to ensure they are spending quality time each day on academic tasks. 

While this time has presented a lot of uncertainty, we want to assure you that we are here to support you. Enclosed in this mailing, is a log that outlines communication and office hours for all HSSL staff. Please look out for phone messages, mailings and emails from the High School for Service and Learning in the coming weeks as new information becomes available. 

Use the list below to stay connected with us during this time. Stay safe and be well.
