The First Day of School for All Students
UPDATED SEPTEMBER 17TH, 2020 FOLLOWING MAYOR'S PRESS CONFERENCE:
As, Mayor DiBlasio and Chancellor Carranza announced that the first day of school for all students is scheduled for Wednesday, September 16th. All students will engage in Remote Learning from 9/16-9/30.
All QHST Student and Families should have received an email from our QHST General Information Mailbox last week that announced the delayed start to the school year. For QHST Students and Families that have selected Blended Learning, the email also included students' assigned Blended Learning Cohort/Group, which identifies the 2 days during our 6 day cycle that Blended Learning students will engage in in-person/on-site learning. Blended Learning will begin on Thursday, October 1st.
QHST Students assigned to Cohort/Group A will engage in on-site/in-person learning on October 1st and 2nd.
QHST Students assigned to Cohort/Group B will engage in on-site/in-person learning on October 5th and 6th.
QHST Students assigned to Cohort/Group C will engage in on-site/in-person learning on October 7th and 8th.
If students and families select full Remote Learning, students will not attend school in-person and will engage in all Remote Learning 5 days per week using our QHST G-Suite platform.
Students and families that selected Blended Learning will be assigned to one of 3 Blended Learning Cohorts, and will attend school in-person for 2 consecutive days during each 6 day cycle. During the 4 following consecutive days, students will participate in Remote Learning using our QHST G-Suite platform. Please visit the Blended Learning Instructional Model page of our QHST Website for additional information regarding the assignment of our Student Cohort Groups.
The Start Time for all students that will participate in Blended Learning will be 830AM during each day that students are scheduled to attend school in-person.
Additional information regarding the start to the 2020-2021 School Year, including information regarding Remote Small Learning Community & Grade Level Orientations will be forthcoming.
On behalf of our entire QHST School Community, I wish all QHST Students and Families a safe and healthy end to summer vacation with friends and family! We look forward to seeing everyone soon!!
Mr. Ean Corrado
