A Message from the Principal



Principal’s Weekly Message


October 23, 2020


Dear PS 64 Family,


Congratulations on successfully completing week four of remote or in-person learning.  Next week remote families will have the option to request in-person learning for the next quarter and we look forward to welcoming some of you back in the building.  Details on how to request in-person learning will be provided.  Remember there is no deadline to apply for remote learning and families may choose this at any time.  


We’re still waiting to hear about our date for random COVID testing.  Once we get word from the central office, we will let you know.  Some schools in the district have been selected, so we should be soon.  Thank you for your patience.  Remember, there are priority testing sites for all NYCDOE students.  Upon arrival you are placed at the front of the line.  It’s quick, easy, and you receive the results within 24 hours.  Here’s the link with the sites and we encourage you to take advantage of this free service.  https://www.schools.nyc.gov/school-year-20-21/return-to-school-2020/health-and-safety/covid-19-testing/priority-testing


Yesterday, out of an abundance of caution, our friends at the Earth School sent a member of their community home with COVID symptoms, not a confirmed case.  Attached you will find a letter from Principal de Luna Castro.    


On Friday, October 30, we plan on maintaining our annual tradition of Halloween at PS 64 in a scaled down, safe and physically distant manner.  In-person students may wear their costumes and we will parade around the block as is our tradition.  Remote students may wear costumes as well and will participate in the activities for the day via Zoom.  Our mini Spook-a-Rama will be in the library and students will enter two at a time.  We will supply small individual bags of candies.  Many thanks to the Halloween planning committee and our partners at Educational Alliance for their work on this.  


Have a great weekend.  Let your light shine as we continue our struggle to do what is right and just.
