SCHOOL OF THE Future Brooklyn

School Welcome

From the Desk of Principal Robert L. Burnside

Dear Families:

We would like to thank you for the flexibility, patience, and partnership that you have demonstrated over the course of our remote instruction. As the school year moves forward, however, there is some pertinent information that we would like to share with you to ensure that your child continues to fully participate in this platform through the end of the school year. 

We understand that for many students not being in a physical classroom is difficult. We are committed to serving all students according to their individual needs.  We continue to expect and encourage your child to put forth the effort by completing their schoolwork and attending their ‘remote’ classes. We understand that many of our own families and staff members are caring for others and/or battling illnesses themselves. Please know that we are in this together. 

Let’s maintain some semblance of normalcy in your child’s life by encouraging them to immerse themselves in their learning.

As always, we are committed to communicating with you about your child’s progress as well as to ensure success in their remote learning environment through the remainder of this school year. Please note that we will continue to use Skedula, or their Google Classrooms to monitor your child’s progress. You can also access updated information regarding our Grading Policy through your child’s Google Classroom.

Please be advised that if you previously received a ‘Promotion in Doubt’ letter, your child is still in jeopardy of being retained. We need your help to prevent this from happening. The grades that your child obtains this marking period can assist in determining whether or not they will be promoted. Below are some ways that you can facilitate your child’s academic progress:

●  Your child must report to their scheduled Google Meets class time. Instructional Time.

●  During Remote Learning, students are expected to come into these meetings and engage with their teachers and other students. It is an opportunity to receive additional instruction. Teachers also have Office Hours to meet with students for extra instructional remote learning.

●  Assignments must be completed on their scheduled due dates.

●  Ensure to check your child’s Google classrooms and Skedula on a regular basis.

●  Please maintain regular communication with your child’s teachers.

●  You can also have your email address added to Google Classroom to receive notifications about your child's progress.

While we navigate these unprecedented times, please know that we are all in this together. Our mission is to do our best to ensure your child receives the necessary academic and emotional support during these times of uncertainty.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s teachers or my administrative team.

Principal Burnside
