Principal’s Update 4/29/2020

Versión en español debajo

Dear BLS Students and Families,
Tuesday, the NYC DOE released an updated grading policy for Remote Learning this spring.  The thing I want to make sure our students and families know is that it's incredibly important that students continue working on and submitting their classwork through the end of the school year.  We absolutely want all students to earn credit in June.  In order to be on track to graduate on time, students must earn credit in all their courses.  Earning "course in progress" in any course can put students at risk for not graduating on time.
Teachers are available every day to help support students in learning and completing work.  Students can contact teachers through email, Google Classroom, virtual Office Hours, and virtual class sessions. If you want to know how a student is doing in their classes currently, please contact the teacher, advisor, or guidance counselor.  We can walk you through exactly where the student is now and what they need to do next.  We are here to make sure that every student can finish the school year strong!
The DOE grading policy letter can be found at this site.  Please contact us with any questions you have.
Thank you,
Sarah
Principal, Bronx Lab School

Estimados Estudiantes y Familias de Bronx Lab,
El Martes, El Departamento de Educacion de la ciudad de Nueva York publico un poliza de notas actualizada para Aprendizaje Virtual para esta primavera.  La cosa que yo quiero asegurar es que nuestros estudiantes y familias deben de saber que es increiblemente importante que nuestros estudiantes continuen con el trabajo hasta el fin de el ano escolar.  Nosotros absolutamente queremos que todos los estudiantes se ganen su credito para Junio.
 Para poder estar en camino a graduarse a tiempo, los estudiantes deben ganar su credito en todas sus materias. Ganando "materia en progreso"  en cualquier materia puede poner estudiantes en riesgo de no poder graduarse a tiempo. 
Los maestros estan disponibles todos los dias para ayudar a los estudiantes con aprendizaje y a completar trabajo. Los estudiantes se pueden comunicar con los maestros por correo electronico, Google Classroom, horas de oificina virtuales, y sesiones de clases virtuales. Si quiere saber como le va a un estudiante en sus clases, por favor comuniquese con el maestro, advisor o consejera. Le podemos ensenar exactamente donde el/la estudiante esta y que tiene que hacer. Nosotros estamos aqui para asegurar que todos los estudiantes terminen el ano fuertemente!
La Poliza de Notas de El Departamento de Educacion esta carta se puede encontrar en este sitio web. Por favor comuniquese con nosotros cualquier pregunta que tenga. 
Gracias,
Sarah
