What do I do for remote learning when I have to quarantine?

 

This page is your guide to remote learning!

If you need to quarantine, you will use this page to help you navigate your remote learning day.

A few reminders:

  • Your teachers will post asynchronous work every morning.
  • Your teachers will also host remote office hours twice during the week.
  • It is not a requirement to attend office hours for all of your classes, but it is your responsibility to keep up with your work. You should be attending office hours to get the help you need to complete your work.
  • You need to attend your grade-level zoom check-in in the morning to be marked present for attendance while you are remote.
 

  • Step 1: Log on to zoom for your grade-level check in. Remember that this is where your attendance is marked while you are remote. Time & links on Canvas.
  • Step 2: Check the office hours schedule for your teachers / classes. Decide which office hours you are going to attend.

 

  • Step 3: Create a quick remote learning schedule for yourself to make sure you are able to complete your assignments and get the academic supports you need.

Health and Safety at KIPP NYC Schools

You can find our latest health and safety protocols and resources on our website under 2021-22 School Year FAQ. Here are several important reminders about our policies to begin the year:

  • Daily Health Survey. All students (or their families) and staff will respond to the Ruvna daily health survey prior to the start of each school day. Students and staff should stay home when they have signs of any infectious illness and see a health care provider for testing and care.
  • Social Distancing. While in the classroom, to the best extent possible, students will maintain a social distance of three feet from each other. For activities such as meals, music, sports, recess, and indoor gym, students will maintain a distance of at least six feet from each other.
  • Masks. All staff and students must wear face masks while in our school buildings and on school grounds. This includes all outdoor school activities, including recess and field trips. Students may remove masks while eating or drinking. Masks can be any color or design, as long as it is appropriate for school. 
  • COVID Testing in School. We will test all students during their first week onsite. After this initial round of testing, we will test 10% of students onsite each week. We will test unvaccinated staff each week. Outside of school, please visit testing sites for children in your zip code. 
  • Staff Vaccination. Our staff are either vaccinated for COVID-19 or they are tested weekly onsite. Additionally, all school staff are submitting a negative COVID-19 PCR test before they return to school, regardless of their vaccination status. 

Health and Safety Guidance 
As a reminder, the COVID-19 vaccine is now widely available for everyone 12 and older. If you’d like to be fully vaccinated you still have time!  We strongly encourage students to get vaccinated.  Also, please check out our Health & Safety Guidance tab for more detailed information and guidance.

 

 

 

 

 

COVID-19 Vaccine Incentives and Access

We strongly encourage all of our staff, our families, and students over the age of 12 to receive the vaccine. It is safe, effective, and will not cause COVID. Please see this page from the CDC for more information on the benefits of the vaccine. 

While the vaccine is not mandatory for our staff or students, vaccination allows children to be in the classroom, participate in afterschool activities and sports, and gather with friends safely. It also provides a more stable learning environment because students who are fully vaccinated currently are not required to quarantine if a student in their class has COVID-19. Please also be aware that New York City will soon require people to show vaccination proof to eat inside of a restaurant, see a performance, or visit a fitness center. It is quite possible that the city will add more businesses to this list in the coming weeks.

New York City is now providing incentives, including $100, if you get your first vaccine dose at a New York City-run vaccine location. See list of the incentives below. On our Community Resources page, you can find information about the vaccine, including NYC Health’s Vaccine Finder to search for a location near you.

A selection of vaccine incentives provided by NYC:

  • $100 Prepaid debit card
  • New York City Football Club tickets
  • Brooklyn Cyclones tickets
  • NYC Ferry 10-Ride Pass
  • Statue of Liberty and accompanying ferry ticket
  • NYC Public Markets gift cards ($25)
  • Public Theater annual membership
  • Two-week membership to Citibike
  • Snug Harbor family membership
  • Family fun wristband and free ride on the Cyclone at Luna Park in Coney Island

Staff Availability/ Communication Expectations:
Please be advised that staff are virtually available for most of the day and we ask that any messaging, questions or outreach are between the hours of 8:00am and 7:00pm. Please be advised that for any messages and/or assignments submitted after 7:00pm there is potential that you will not receive a response until the next day. In an effort to help everyone to find balance, we wanted to provide everyone with a structure for times of communication.

 


Together with families and communities, we create joyful, academically excellent schools
that prepare students to pursue the paths they choose—college, career, and beyond—
so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.
Academics

Students can graduate with a Regents or Advanced Regents Diploma and our school places special emphasis on completing the required coursework and tests to earn an Advanced Regents Diploma, based on the belief that students meeting this higher standard will be prepared to successfully enroll and pass entry-level college coursework. To receive an Advanced Regents Diploma, students must take and pass nine Regents exams: English, three Math, Global History, US History, two Science, and a language other than English. Over 90% of our students enroll in rigorous Advanced Placement (AP), Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA), or Honors courses. Students have the choice of 19 AP courses and 4 SUPA courses, which can earn them college credits, along with 13 honors courses.

College and Career Counseling

We provide a comprehensive college and career counseling department to ensure our students engage in enriching summer programming, develop individual career plans, are fully prepared for the SAT college entrance exam, and go on to enroll in a college or career opportunity that meets their interests, abilities, and financial needs. Students take part in a two-year College Readiness sequence, consisting of College and Career Readiness (CCR) or Foundations of Career Development (FOCD) in junior year and Senior College and Career Counseling (SCCC) in senior year. Through our coursework and counseling, we have seen amazing results:

  • 95% of our students take the SAT, with over 100 points of growth on average from beginning to end of our College and Career Readiness course.
  • Over 95% of our students matriculate to college, with over 50% earning spots in supportive and competitive Opportunity Programs, over 65% of our students enrolling in a college that is ranked as Competitive or higher, and over 65% receiving financial aid that fully covers the direct costs of their college.
  • 90% of our students participate in at least one summer opportunity.
Visual and Performing Arts

We offer 24 different art electives in Visual Arts, Graphic Design, Music, Choir, Dance and Drama. We provide students with introductory, advanced and AP level courses. Our after-school programs offer choir, dance, spoken word, drama, step, visual arts, yearbook, Fall play, and Spring musical. Students can participate and perform in over 10 school productions, competitions, and outside performances throughout the school year.

Athletics

KIPP NYC College Prep offers a robust athletics program and was the first charter school to compete in the Public School Athletic League (PSAL). We offer football, soccer, volleyball, cheerleading, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, rugby, track and lacrosse. We have 14 varsity programs and three junior varsity programs, for a total of 17 interscholastic sports teams. Additionally, we offer intramural flag football, basketball and kickball to give students the benefits of team support in a less competitive setting. Roughly 30% of our student body participates in our athletic program, and we recently won city championships in Football, Men’s Varsity Basketball, Men’s Varsity Baseball and Women’s Varsity Rugby. Our Cheerleading program has been ranked 8th and 9th in the country the two past seasons, respectively, in the non-tumbling varsity division.
