As you may know, the positivity rate of the COVID-19 spread is on the rise. With the upcoming holidays, public health experts are warning that people moving indoors and into gatherings will add to the increase. With that knowledge and your input, we have decided to continue with the Virtual Learning Plan for the 2nd Quarter (Monday, November 16th - Friday, January 29th). During this time, we will prepare to transition to the Hybrid Learning Plan for the 3rd quarter which will begin on Monday, February 1st.
In the future, you will receive a letter detailing information about the Hybrid Learning Plan from our School Principal and your child's Department Supervisor. In the meantime, please feel free to review our Reopening School Plan on the Lexington School website. Should you have any questions about the plan, please contact us at AskSchoolQQ@lexnyc.org.
Lexington School for the Deaf is committed to providing programs and services consistent with students' Individualized Education Program (IEP). While a full educational experience can be a challenge to provide through remote learning plans, the dedicated faculty and staff are working in collaboration with each other and our families to maintain our home-to-school connection.
Lexington's School Reopening Plan was developed to conform to the guidance provided by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) in their July 2020 document: "Recovering, Rebuilding, and Renewing: The Spirit of New York's Schools - Reopening Guidance." This plan will be revised and updated as needed to adjust to changing public health conditions caused by the COVID-19 virus and all of the new requirements and regulations that may emerge over time. We solicited input and involvement from the families we serve and our staff during the original drafting of our reopening plan. We will rely on continued input from all stakeholders as we move forward in implementing this plan and as we contemplate any additions or modifications.
