CoVID 19 Daily News

06/03/20

Goodmorning Scholars, 

We know how deeply exhausting and upsetting the last few days have been with all that is happening outside your doors. We understand how hard it will be to focus and continue to work, we've relaxed the requirements for submission of work for the next few days until we as a community have had time to address the sadness and conflicts happening in America.

We are planning on having a day of reflection and conversation on Thursday for all to voice their feeling and concerns.  We will give details tomorrow about our day of reflection and commitment to dismantling the systems of injustices that our staff and students are up against, building equity, and addressing social injustice in our community. 

 

Today's classes: 

Social Studies, Spanish, and Art/Music classes. The due dates and time for All assignments for these classes will be determined by your teachers. Your teachers will be available today between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. via email.

 

Important Dates:

June 5: Last day for remote learning for Seniors (12th grade).

June 10: Deadline for seniors to submit all assignments.

June 12: Last day of remote learning for grades 9-11

June 19: Deadline for submitting all assignments. 

 

Reminder about regent exams:

1. If you are in a class that ends in a regents exam, and you pass the class for the year, you will be exempt from taking the regent exam and will be considered as pass.  

2. If you are in any of the prep classes for taking a regent and you pass, you are exempt from the regent and you will be considered as passing that regent.

3. If you fail any of these classes, you will need to make them up in the summer and pass to get a regent pass. 

So it's very important to pass your classes to fulfill your regent and credit requirements towards graduation.

06/02/20

Goodmorning Scholars,

It is truly an ugly day when you look at the news and watch a person lose their life at the hands of those who are meant to protect us. Unnecessary deaths like Floyd’s, Arbery’s, and Taylor’s reveal to us these deeper, systemic issues in the way we treat people of color in this country.  

We know how deeply exhausted and upset many of us are - especially our Black and Brown scholars, teachers, and family members.  As we reflect on the events of the last week and what is happening in America, and right outside your neighborhood. We understand how hard it will be to focus and will relax the requirements of submission of work for the next few days until we as a community have had time to address the sadness and conflicts happening in America.  
We are planning on having a day of reflection and conversation on Thursday for all to voice their feeling and concerns.  We will give details tomorrow about our days of reflection and commitment  Thursday and Friday.  Until that time and for the rest of this week we ask all faculty and staff plus our scholars and family to think of ways as a community we can focus on change and how we can make a difference in change.
We would like all assignments to be relaxed and focus on the murder of George Floyd and how this tragedy can be a positive moment for the LSJ community and our nation.
Assignments can be due next week and take this week to reflect in constructive ways to move forward together.
Be safe!  

 

Today's classes: Math and PE classes. The due dates and time for all assignments for these classes will be determined by your teachers. Your teachers will be available today between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. via email.

YOUR SOCIAL EMOTIONAL CORNER

This Monday is a great day to just breathe! Here’s a simple exercise to start with, whether you choose to practice with music or in silence:

  1. While standing or sitting (even leaning with your back against a wall is fine), be aware of your feet grounded on the floor. Close your eyes.

  2. Take a deep breath in, scanning your entire body up and down, from your toes to the top of your head, then back down again while breathing out.

  3. As you inhale and exhale, breathe deep into your chest so your belly fills with the air. When exhaling, control the air as it leaves your lungs.

  4. Make breathing in and out your only responsibility. Listen to your breath as it goes in and out of your nose. Feel it as it fills your lungs. Control it as your lungs empty.

  5. Do this for one minute. At the end of the meditation, open your eyes.

And that’s it! Start a new one-minute meditation practice this Monday, and make time for it every day. Make it something to look forward to – your one quiet minute – and you’ll get to next Monday in a calmer state of mind.

 

Don't forget:

Instagram launched Thank You Hour, a sticker in stories that lets you show gratitude for what's helping you through this time. Use the sticker and your photo or video will be added to a shared Instagram story at 7 p.m. your time where friends can see your thanks.

Earth Day

April 22nd, 2020, marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the annual celebration of the environmental movement. In 1970, according to EarthDay.org, about 20 million Americans assembled to demand greater attention to the protection of the planet. Since then, activists around the world have gathered each year to mark the day.
Ironically, this year’s Earth Day is taking place during one of the most widespread and deadly pandemics the world has seen for generations. As a result, any gatherings or other in-person events have had to be canceled — but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the occasion while sheltering in place.

Giving Tuesday is Gratitude Tuesday: 
Give a thank you to our Frontline Heroes who helping fight Covid-19

Between the continuous screams of ambulance sirens rushing new patients to hospitals all day and the non-stop negative news headlines, there is one moment each day that breaks up this daily monotony that is the new normal. 
At 7 p.m. each night, New Yorkers open a window, or step out onto balconies or rooftops and make some noise for two minutes. We scream we clap, we bang pots and pans, we make music, but most of all we give thanks and gratitude to all the frontline workers who are risking their lives every day. 
It is a moment where those who feel powerless can show their gratitude to all the health-care workers, delivery drivers, grocery store workers and everyone else who is out there, every day, in the thick of it.

 

INSTAGRAM THANK YOU HOUR

Instagram launched Thank You Hour, a sticker in stories that lets you show gratitude for what's helping you through this time. Use the sticker and your photo or video will be added to a shared Instagram story at 7 p.m. your time where friends can see your thanks.

YOUR SOCIAL EMOTIONAL CORNER

Doing purposeful actions to show yourself love, attracts more loving and positive energy. Plus you feel so much happier.  Pick and mix these 7 ways to show yourself some love today.

1. Clean up your inbox. Delete everything that you are not currently using/working on and archive the others for future reference.  Clean up that energetic space to allow more love in, not SPAM.

2. Put fruit slices in your water. Every sip of water can feel like you are at the spa with lemon, lime, apple or cucumbers. Plus you’re showing your body some love too.

3. Have a mid-day dance party. No, really. Trust me.

4. Take a nap. If you’re living in today’s hectic world, you’re definitely sleep deprived. So, take a nap, catch up on some sleep and take a break from everything else.
5. Take a bath. Bubbles and a cup of tea always help me connect with my thoughts and relax.

6. Breathe. Stop in the middle of your day, become aware of your breath, and take 5 long inhales and exhales.

7. Write yourself a letter. Write down all the things you love about yourself. Go ahead.

 

We would love to see how you are working on your assignments at home, so send your pictures so that we can share them with the rest of our community in the daily news. Send your pictures to fbuckman@chslsj.org

Happy Friday!

 

We've made it to the end of the fourth week of distance learning! There are no classes today. If you haven't submitted your assignments for classes this week, be in communication with your teachers and do so by the end of the day today. 

 

Since we’re all probably planning to spend more time at home for a while,  I was looking for something fun to do. (There’s only so much Netflix one can watch!) So I surfed the internet for some inspiration and I came across EarthCam and WebcamTaxi where you can watch live HD video feeds of different countries, iconic landmarks and even wildlife! Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds?

 

In the meantime, enjoy the weekend, wash your hands, and remember social distancing.

Your Social Emotional Corner

When we have gratitude we focus on and appreciate the good in our lives which helps to remind us of the great things all around us. Practicing gratitude allows us to recognize those that bring goodness to our lives and reminds us to give thanks to those we are grateful for.

 

Studies show that when people practice expressing gratitude, they have higher levels of optimism, increased life satisfaction, and decreased negative feelings.  A UC Davis study found that grateful teens had higher grade point averages, life satisfaction, social integration, and lower envy and depression. Additionally, children who regularly express gratitude appreciate close relationships and feel better about life and school.

Practicing gratitude can be very simple using just the number 3:

Examples:
1. Find three small items in nature (rock, leaf, twig, flower, etc) and label each with something or someone you are grateful for.  Place these items in a spot where you will see them and be reminded of what you are grateful for.


2. Find three beads and a piece of string. Label each bead with something/someone you are grateful for. Put the beads on the string and tie a knot. Keep the stringed beads as a bracelet, in your pocket, or someplace you will see them to be reminded of what you are grateful for.


3. Create a journal. Use a notebook or staple papers together for a gratitude journal. Take 5 minutes a day to write down 3 things that you are grateful for. Be specific, instead of writing “I’m thankful for my family” you might write, “I am thankful that my mom helped me with my laundry today.”

Today is our last day of classes this week as we go on into a short break for Thursday and Friday. We resume our distance learning schedule on Monday, April 13, 2020.

 

Today's classes: Social studies, Spanish, Science, and Art/Music classes. There is no SAT/ACT class for this week's assignment.  All assignments for these classes will be due today at 11:59 pm. Your teachers will be available today between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. via email. 

 

Governor Cuomo, extending the school closure to April 29, 2020. In his Executive Order 202.4, the Governor made it clear he expects schools to use all scheduled vacation days to continue distance learning. As a result, schools throughout the area and the state have had to cancel Spring Break. We are in distance learning from April 13 through April 29, 2020. 

YOUR SOCIAL EMOTIONAL CORNER

It's important to keep your body moving and your heart pumping for at least 30 minutes daily. This is hard to do especially when we are sheltered in because of our current conditions with Convid19, but it very important to maintain our health to keep our immune system strong and healthy. Make it a high priority to get some physical activity in today and every day. 

 

Go for a walk/run (if you can remember social distancing)

At home workouts: Stress Melt - 26 Min Yoga Break | Yoga With Adriene

April 10 - Good Friday - No School

YOUR SOCIAL EMOTIONAL CORNER

Do you ever forget to take care of yourself?

 

I know. You’re busy, and finding the time to take proper care of yourself can be hard. But if you don’t, it won’t be long before you’re battered from exhaustion and operating in a mental fog where it’s hard to care about anything or anyone.

Self-care isn’t something you do once and check off the list. It’s the constant repetition of many tiny habits, which together soothe you and make sure you’re at your optimum—emotionally, physically, and mentally.

The best way to do this is to implement tiny self-care habits every day. To regularly include in your life a little bit of love and attention for your own body, mind, and soul.

Today's idea is a tiny self-care activity you can fit into a short amount of time, usually with little cost.

Make one small change to your diet for the week. Drink an extra glass of water each day, or have an extra portion of veggies each meal.

Please continue to share pictures of you working on your lessons at home, so that we can share them with the rest of the community. 

 

 

Stay safe and well. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

IMPORTANT DATES!

April 9 - Passover - No School

April 10 - Good Friday - No School

On March 27, 2020, Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.11, extending the school closure to April 15, 2020. In that Executive Order, the Governor made clear that he expects schools to use all scheduled vacation days to continue distance learning. As a result, schools throughout the area and the state have had to send out similar, if unpopular, messages to this effect: Spring Break is canceled.

We must acknowledge and respect the religious holidays on April 9 (Passover) and April 10 (Good Friday). Therefore we will be closed April 9 and April 10. We will resume the regular schedule for distance learning on April 13. 

We will keep you updated if anything changes with our return date of April 20. 

We miss you all and are eager to see our hallways bustling with activity as soon as possible. 

Be well and continue to practice social distancing.

The quarter ends this Friday, March 27th. Make sure you've gotten all your work in for the quarter by this time. The new quarter begins on March 30th. 

 

Have a great day!

Our Plan

 

The School will be open on Monday 3/16/20 and close on Tuesday 3/17/20 until Monday 4/20/20 when we will reevaluate the situation.

  

There will be no classes at the building until 4/20/20, you will have classes online and like the regular school they count and you will receive a grade for your online work.

 

Tomorrow, we will let you know if we will be able to provide breakfast and lunch or will it be for pick up at another location.  

 

Scholars need to come in tomorrow to be taught how to use google classroom and video chats for their lessons and get more information.  These online classes will be part of their grade.

 

Structure:

Each subject will have a specific day of the week when lesson materials, resources, and assignments will be posted. 

  • Mondays: ELA and Law classes

  • Tuesdays: Math and PE classes

  • Wednesdays: Social Studies and Spanish classes

  • Thursdays: Science and Health classes 

 

All student assignments are due at 11:59 PM on the same day of said class. Assignments can still be submitted after the deadline but they will be counted as late and as a result, be graded accordingly.

 

Expectations for students:
  • Students are expected to complete all assignments for that day by 11:59 PM.

  • Students are encouraged to email teachers with questions or for clarification on assignments. If they email after 4:00 PM pm, they should expect a response from their teacher by the next day.

  • Students are encouraged to email Mr. Burke and/or Mrs. Buckman if they do not receive a reply from the teacher(s) regarding their assignment inquiries within 24 hours of outreach.
