It's official: NYC schools will continue remote learning for the remainder of the academic year.
Since this is a big adjustment for everyone, particularly little academics, the NYC DOE has decided to step in with "Let's Learn NYC!" a new TV program in partnership with WNET.
"As our city's students continue their education at home, it is more important than ever that we keep them engaged, inspired to learn and supported," First Lady Chirlane McCray said in a statement. “This new partnership will provide young New Yorkers and their families with a fun, new way to learn."
The program, which launched on May 4, is geared toward students in pre-k through second grade and will air daily at 11am. "Let's Learn NYC!" features professionals from NYC schools—teachers, coaches, etc—who provide daily lessons for youngsters in a wide variety of subjects, including math, literacy, social studies, music and movement, among others. In the event families can't tune in, they can always catch up on thirteen.org.
So much is changing in a short amount of time—grading policies, graduation ceremonies—and so much is still to be determined. If you find yourself at a loss for where to turn, we're here to help you navigate your time in and stay up-to-date with the latest news for NYC schools. Never fear, Mom and Dad: We've got your back!
