First Reopening Meeting for Parents

Greetings MAST Parents, Guardians and Families:

Thank you for your continued partnership. I hope you find time to rest and relax this summer. The DOE Central issued guidance to schools on blended learning and offered a series of program models that schools will
use in the fall. We want you, our families, to be actively engaged in the planning process, and we commit to providing you with timely information so that you can feel confident about your decision-making as we make
plans for fall 2020.

Please join us on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 from 5pm – 6pm for our first of multiple schoolwide Reopening Parent Meetings. The purpose of these schoolwide reopening parent meetings is to provide us with the
opportunity to share information with you, and solicit your feedback on our plans for the fall. During next week’s parent meeting we will present you with information about our school’s building capacity and
programming models, and ask you to complete an online survey to identify your programming model preference. Click here for a glossary of re-opening terms that explains some of the concepts you will be hearing
about over the next several weeks.

You can also directly access the parent meeting by using this ZOOM link.

The first step to having your voice heard is by participating in our schoolwide parent meetings, and I look forward to connecting with you there. By next week, our school will have organized our Parent Empowerment Team, which will be leading our parent engagement this summer.

Please feel free to contact me or our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Sujeiry Gonzalez, at sgonzalez@masths.org, if you have any follow-up questions or concerns.

In addition, there will be a citywide Return to School Family and Student Information Session – July 28, 2020 6:30pm-8:00pm.

To register to participate in this meeting, you can CLICK HERE.

Finally, be reminded that if you would like to continue all-remote learning in the fall, please let us know by completing the Learning Preference survey by August 7th, 2020.

Warmest Regards,

Allika Thompson-Young
Principal
