    Good morning!

    I hope all is well with you.

    Only a few days left until the end of the semester! Here is the schedule for next week. Since Regents were canceled, the student schedule is adjusted for next week. This will allow staff to update grades, prepare for next semester and begin scheduling students for the spring semester. You will receive scheduling information later next week to make an appointment or to notify you that it is completed.

    Also, students do need to stay for the day unless there is an extenuating circumstance, which we know does happen, that cause them to need to leave. If this is the case, please contact the school to let us know. It is important that students stay the day so they can complete and submit as much work as possible.

  • 1/18 Weekly Update from Ms. Lobato

    Good afternoon,
    I hope you had a good weekend and stayed warm.
    We are so glad to have you back- the school feels like a school!!!
    We are in the home stretch for the fall semester. This week all students may come in to make up work and complete finals in their classes and internship. You must do so to receive the credit for your classes. To receive the credit, your grade must be 65 or above after averaging your first and second marking period grades. If you are in a Regents class, you need to pass the class AND complete the final to receive the waiver. Do not lose out on this opportunity!!! The last day to make up and submit your work is by the end of the day on 1/24. Students who are in Regents classes will have until 12:30 on the 25th to complete their finals and work. Work will not be accepted after these dates.
     
    Students can go to Internship then go to their scheduled classes as well, you do receive credit for the internship so you need to complete these requirements as well.
     
    If you did not complete your internship paper you can finish this next semester- your work will continue and you will get the credit when it is completed.
     
    We are continuing with COVID testing for students as long as a consent form is received. If you would like to be tested, we can get you a consent form to fill out. If you are 18 or over, you can sign for yourself. Testing is on Tuesdays at 10:30.
     
    Dates to be mindful of:
     
    1/24-End of Marking period-no work submitted after this date for non -Regents classes

  • 1/10 Weekly Update from Ms. Lobato

    Good morning!

    I hope you had a good weekend and stayed warm.

    As I e-mailed last week, we will remain hybrid for this week. We will decide by Thursday if we will return in-person on the 18th so look out for an e-mail about this. Hopefully numbers will go down soon and we can get back to in-person instruction.

    Students who are in person will need to wear the required masks.  No gaiters, ski, or single-layer cloth masks may be worn. We do have the required masks here for students to use if you have the wrong one.  It will need to be worn during class time and can be taken off when eating and drinking. We are encouraging, with consent forms received, COVID testing here at the school on Tuesdays at 10:30.  If you need a consent form please let me know and we will get you one.

    Finals start today in all classes. These are posted on your Juno pods and can ZOOM into your class for extra help if you need it. Make sure you ZOOM in!! These all are graded so make sure you do complete them. If you cannot access them, let me know, and will figure it out for you. If you are scheduled for a Regents, you must take that final as part of the requirement, along with passing the class, to receive the waiver. Do not miss out on this opportunity!!

    Dates to be mindful of:
    1/10-finals start
    1/14- Internship papers are due
    1/17-No school-MLK day

    Happy New Year. I hope you had a good and safe holiday. If you or your family is affected by COVID I do hope that it is a mild case.
    We will be hybrid for the rest of this week and will make a determination about next week by Thursday if we will continue. If you need a device or help accessing Juno pods, ZOOM or anything you can come in to the building for help if you want. If you do need help and do not want to come in please let me know or contact your mentor and they can help you as well.
    Students that have signed consent forms for COVID testing are still encouraged to come in- we are still scheduled for this. Do take advantage of this, especially with tests so hard to find. This is only for students that have their consent forms submitted. If you would like a consent form for future testing please fill out and send back the consent form and will submit it so you are in the system.
    Teachers will have their ZOOM links posted and Juno pods to be completed, you are expected to ZOOM in for class. These will be graded assignments so make sure they are completed.
    Students in internship you will be fully remote so make sure you log in for this as well as with Ms. Awano for the paper- You have been sent a separate e-mail about this. Yes, papers are still due :-)
    We will be starting finals in soon with the schedule being sent out later this week. This will be done during your class time and if you need extra help you will get it. No need to stress about this at all. Those of you in Regents classes your final will be given during what was Regents week. You will need to complete this as part of the requirement for the waiver.

  • 12/13 Weekly Update from Ms. Lobato

    Good day everyone,

    I hope you had a good weekend.

    A week is in for an internship
    B week is in for instruction.

    Make sure you are keeping up with missed work; the end of the semester will be here soon. Remember, it is the first and second quarter combined that give you your semester grade and CREDIT. Make sure you get the credit that you worked hard to get!

    Internship papers are due January 14th with extensions not given at this time. This is due to a great deal of reading and grading time that Ms. Awano needs with the papers. You do get a credit for this so plan to complete it by the due date. There is still plenty of time to get this done.  If you need help let us know and we will work out extra support.

    If you are interested in New Dawn’s COVID testing program just let Ms. Fields know and she will get you a consent form in order to get you on the list. The testing is random and takes place every Tuesday here at the school.

     

    Masks are still required at this time to ensure a safe learning environment for students and staff. Please come to school with a mask; if you do not have one, you will be given one when you arrive. If you are using a ski or gaiter mask this unfortunately is not allowed by CDC recommendations and you will need to have a traditional mask. Thank you for your cooperation with this.

    Dates to be mindful of:
    12/24-Remote instruction day
    1/3-school reopens from the holiday break
    1/14-internship papers due
    1/24-end of the marking period and fall semester
    1/25-Regents examinations begin- a separate e-mail will be sent about this

    As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.
    Take care,

  • 11/22 Weekly Update from Ms. Lobato

    Good morning!

    I hope you all had a good weekend.

    This is a short week for the Thanksgiving break.

    The new semester has started so do attend classes on a consistent basis so you do not fall behind. Remember that it is the average of quarter 1 and quarter 2 that equal the semester grade and how you get the credit for your class. This applies to internship as well. For the internship paper it is the combination of all of the assignments that lead to the paper and the completion of the paper that make up your grade. Do stay on top of this!

    Wednesday we will be having our annual Thanksgiving lunch for students. We will have turkey with all of the sides and dessert. There will also be a student v. staff game that Mr. Asher is planning for the morning, this is a yearly tradition that is back on track. After lunch students may leave, so yes, this is a half day for you. Do plan on coming in, it is a light day for you.

    Dates to be mindful of:
    11/25 &11/26- School closed for Thanksgiving
    I do wish you all a very thankful Thanksgiving no matter where you are or who you are with.
    If you have any questions please let me know.
    Take care,
    Donna Lobato
