Questions About Teaching & Learning

  • Where and when will students receive instruction?

    All students will receive instruction in-person, Monday through Friday, for the 2021-22 school year. The only exceptions will be students with a confirmed diagnosis and documentation from a physician.  

    Home instruction will ONLY be available to students who have a confirmed diagnosis and documentation from a physician.  A signed note from a physician will be required to be eligible for home instruction. If your child has a documented medical health condition, please contact Sheri Fowler at Student Support Services at sheri.d.fowler@jpsny.org or 483-4393 for a Home Instruction Form. The Medical Homebound Instruction Form will need to be completed by a licensed physician and returned to the Director of Student Support Services, Chad Bongiovanni at chad.a.bongiovanni@jpsny.org or 197 Martin Road.
