    Importnat Notices: Month of January

    Happy New Year!  Unfortunately, by this time, many of you have already heard from me that I have tested positive for Covid-19 and am experiencing severe covid 19 symptoms.  With this in mind, I am unable to teach live lessons tomorrow on TEAMS and my independent, A-synchronous/independent work for the students will be posted here on my Teacher Page on the School 21 Website and on CLEVER.  I hope to be on-line on TEAMS later in the week once I am feeling stronger and up to it.  I will keep you all updated daily.

    Important Message:

    Due to the rise in Covid-19 cases in our community, Yonkers Public Schools will participate in remote instruction for the week of January 3-7, 2022

    ***I want to thank you all for all the well wishes, emails, texts, phone calls and Clever messages.  I read them throughout the day and greatly appreicate everyone's concerns for my speedy recovery.  It is my intention and will to get on-line with your children on TEAMS to start live teaching.  I am trying to rest and gain back my voice so that is possible.  I know that every child works to the best of their ability with the technology that they have at home and the parental support that they all have.  Trust me, I know how difficult remote learning can and is.  My two boys are on remote learning for the next 10 days with a mom with Covid.  It may look like a lot of assignments.  Please do not worry about getting it all done in one day.  I post assignments and then keep the due dates open for the week.  If your child needs more work, check out Clever's District page and there are hundreds of apps they can access.  They can catch up on past student work if they have their books and materials at home.  I gave out big mailla envelopes the last day of school with paper and pencil packets they can work on. I only ask that they try thier best, log into Clever, reach out to me directly via text or email.
