HYBRID LEARNING SCHEDULE FOR FALL 2020
We are starting the school year with a hybrid learning schedule. That means that your child will be in school some days and working from home some days. If our district moves into a Level 4 Health Emergency, we will switch to 100% remote learning for all students. Check this page for updates.
|1||REMOTE||Group A||Group A||Group B||Group B|
- Students participating in blended learning will participate remotely whenever not in-person Monday-Friday.
- If you need to switch your child's in-school learning days, contact Ms. Kristen at KDruda@theharborviewschool.org.
- If you would prefer a 100% online learning schedule for your child this year, we are offering that as an option. To enroll complete the online form: https://www.nycenet.edu/surveys/learningpreference

Technology: Getting a Device and Internet Access
We are committed to making sure that all students can successfully connect to online learning during their at-home learning days.
- If your student needs an iPad, fill out the Device Request to reserve your device.
- Borrowed devices should be used for school purposes only and kept in a secure location. Take your device with you on in-school days.
- If you do not have internet access at home, LOCAL INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER is providing free connection for families earning less than $50,000 per year with students learning at home. You can request free internet access directly with the company.
- If you are not able to get internet hooked up in your home, your child's teacher will work with you to provide alternative offline assignments.
- If you are having trouble connecting to Google Class, Google Hangouts, or any of our online learning resources through a DOE issued device, please contact the NYC Tech support desk at: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/learning/learn-at-home/technical-tools-and-support/technical-support-for-families
