Questions and Answers from February Town Hall meetings.

The schools are phasing back to a hybrid model. The District had shifted temporarily to all-distance learning after New York State designated much of the District as a yellow zone, indicating a concerning increase in COVID-19 cases.

On December 10, 2020: Pre-K through grade 3 returned to hybrid and learning hubs resumed at all sites.

On January 4, 2021: Grades 4 through 8 returned to hybrid.

Alternative Campus High School returned to hybrid January 11, 2021.

New Rochelle High School returned to hybrid January 19, 2021. 

Special education students receiving in-person education will continue to do so.

The coronavirus pandemic has radically changed all that we do, but it has not altered our core mission to provide a nurturing, high-quality education to every child in a safe environment.

Since COVID-19 arrived in New Rochelle, District administrators, educators and staff have devoted themselves wholly to facing the challenges brought by the virus in the service of our more than 10,000 students. This year, now that the transition to a hybrid model has been completed, we will provide students as much in-person education as can be done safely and responsibly, while remaining prepared to shift to an all-remote model when the situation calls for it.  On our COVID Resource Center page, you will find our plan, guidance on how to stay safe, the precautions we take, the rationale that drives our decisions, and more.

We know that this unfamiliar situation has sparked passionate opinions about how best to serve the children. At times, this has resulted in groups people seeking opposite solutions, each side feeling as passionate as the other. We ask that you remember that this impacts us all, sometimes in very different was. Further, we ask you to remember that, while we may see things differently, we are one community, that we all have the children’s best interests at heart, and that we will succeed in weathering this situation better if we face it together.

Advice from the Westchester County District Attorney:

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. is urging parents to be extra vigilant about their children’s online and mobile activity on social apps. With added time online during the school closure, children, especially those in their tweens and teens, may be at increased risk of cyber bullying, sexual exploitation, scams and other forms of digital abuse. 

Parents are advised to:

  • Set limits on online usage
  • Create mobile curfews: Turn off phones at night and store them with your phone
  • Set parental controls where possible
  • Know your child’s passwords
  • Remind young children especially: Don’t “talk” to strangers. Explain that people online can make up identities and may take advantage of them
  • Block and report users who make them feel uncomfortable.

If you have a complaint about a person or business, you can visit Westchester County’s online complaint site here.
