LESP Letter to parents

March 19th, 2020

Good evening LESP Family,

The health and safety of all students, staff and families continues to be our first priority.  As we navigate the daily changes regarding COVID-19, communication is very important.  For that reason we are asking all families to use our online platform, PupilPath.  We have attached the directions to sign up.  This is how all of our communication will occur as we move forward.  We are also reaching out by phone to determine which students are in need of computers, wifi, etc.  Some students in need of technology picked up school laptops and power cords while we are not present in school. AFTER 3/19, if anyone still needs a laptop, PLEASE contact Mr. Anaya [email protected]  to loan one out.  

Some teachers have already reached out to students about next steps. The official opening of DOE schools for distance learning is Monday 3/23. I know some are anxious to get restarted, it speaks to the type of students/families that we have in the community. As we wait for further official DOE direction, please be patient and email your teacher with any burning questions/concerns. Teachers will be reaching out soon about procedures for their classes moving forward. We are trying to keep things as uniform as possible, but please be understanding this is all new for us too. 

Beginning today, Monday, March 16, Charter cable will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription, and installation fees will be waived for new student households. For eligible low-income households without school-aged children, Charter continues to offer “Spectrum Internet Assist,” a low-cost broadband program delivering speeds of 30 Mbps. They are also opening its Wi-Fi hotspots across their service area for public use.  To enroll in the free broadband service or Internet Assist, call 1-844-488-8395. (It’s their standard customer service line, so use the “new service” or “add service” option. To avoid long wait times, call early in the morning or later in the evening, until 1:00 am EDT)  

Also, we will be canceling the Parent-Teacher Conferences scheduled for this week. If and when the DOE has alternate plans, we will see about rescheduling them at a later date. Thank you for your understanding as these tough decisions have to be made.  That being said we are ALWAYS here for you. If anyone still needs something from us, please contact your guidance counselors: Mr. Rivera [email protected] ; Ms. Chan [email protected] ; and Ms. Wu [email protected] (Taking Ms. Poon’s place).

We are living in a new temporary reality. It is up to every one of us to be there for each other and to be our best selves. We will try to make this next stage as educationally sound as possible. Be there and be kind to one another as we move forward. This is a time for innovation and students are encouraged to use their creativity at this time. Keep a journal, written or video of experiencing this historic time in our lives. Write a story, song or poem to pass the time. Read a book that has been sitting on your to-read list! Here is a good article that I came across recently to prepare for a possible lock-down and quarantine. Work collaboratively with one another to make the best of a challenging reality. 

We are all in this together. If you need anything please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Sincerely,

Mr. Rene Anaya
Principal
Lower East Side Preparatory High School

Letters to LESP families

March 16th, 2020

Dear Students (and Parents and Guardians): 

Your teachers and I have been discussing how best to support you over the coming weeks. We know how hard you work and how much you care about school. But we also know that we are living through a frightening period, and we want to help keep you, and your families, safe and healthy. 

We have decided that, from Tuesday, March 17, until Monday, April 20 (the end of spring vacation), the following policies will apply in all of our classes: 

·         In-person examinations and quizzes are suspended.
·         Required in-class group and individual presentations are suspended.
·         All assignments, projects, presentations, and take-home examinations may be submitted electronically. 

Over the coming days, we will be advising you about how teachers will post assignments and other materials electronically, either through Google Classroom, or another means. We are also working on plans to assist students who do not have access at home to the Internet or a computer. Finally, we have to make some decisions about how grades will be calculated this marking period and moving forward. These issues will take some time to sort out, but we will keep you posted. 

In short, we are your teachers through thick and through thin. We care about you deeply and wish you and your families good health. 

Best regards,

Mr. Rene Anaya
Principal
Lower East Side Preparatory High School
