Regent Examination Update - 4/21/2020

April 2020

Letter to Families Regarding June 2020 Regents Exams

Greetings MCHS Students and Families,

First, I would like to commend you in valuing your education, continuously contacting your teachers and completing your assignments. We know that this move to online learning it is not easy, and we will support you in any way that we can.

Secondly, I write to inform you that the New York State Board of Regents has cancelled all Regents exams for June 2020. Regents exams are required for all students to graduate from high school. Instead of taking Regents exams, NY State has provided guidance regarding each school granting exemptions to students who would have otherwise taken Regents Examinations in June. Each student’s situation is different, and exemptions will be granted on an individual basis. In order to qualify for the exemption, students must have earned credit in courses culminating in a Regents exam, by the end of the 2019-20 school year. In other words, students will only receive Regents Exam credit if they have met the standards for the full year course. It is essential that students seek to engage in the learning being offered remotely by our teachers to set themselves up for course completion.

This means that although we are all facing challenges posed by the global pandemic, it is important that every student put their best effort into passing their courses this spring. Your teachers are using Google Hangouts daily and are available via email. Likewise, your MCHS Guidance Counselor- Jessica Edwards, Social Workers- Tanya Dale and Jackie Davis, and Administration- Principal Williams and AP Singh are also available to support students and families so that you have the best chance at success.

School officials will reach out to families and students in the coming weeks via email and/or phone calls regarding individual Regents exemptions. Please ensure you and your MCHS student check his/her email regularly. In addition, if for any reason your phone numbers change please contact us at our temporary phone numbers -

Main Office English: (914) 559-2759 (9:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.) Main Office en Español: (845) 535-9785 (9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.)

Please find enclosed with this letter a list of staff contact information. Do not hesitate to reach out.

Sincerely,

Peta-Gaye Williams

Carta a las familias con Respecto a los Exámenes de los Regents de Junio 2020

Saludos Familias y Estudiantes de la escuela secundaria Marie Curie,

En primer lugar, me gustaría elogiarles por valorar su educación, contactar continuamente a sus maestros y completar sus tareas. Sabemos que este paso al aprendizaje en línea no es fácil, y le apoyaremos de cualquier manera que podamos.

En segundo lugar, escribo para informarle que la Junta de Regentes del Estado de Nueva York ha cancelado todos los exámenes regentes para junio 2020. Se requieren exámenes de regentes para que todos los estudiantes se gradúen de la escuela secundaria. En lugar de tomar exámenes Regents, el Estado de NY ha proporcionado orientación con respecto a cada escuela que otorga exenciones a los estudiantes que de otra manera habrían tomado Exámenes regentes en junio. La situación de cada estudiante es diferente, y las exenciones se otorgarán de forma individual. Para calificar para la exención, los estudiantes deben haber ganado crédito en cursos que culminan en un examen Regents, al final del año escolar 2019-20. En otras palabras, los estudiantes solo recibirán crédito para un Examen Regentes si han cumplido con los estándares para el curso de año completo. Es esencial que los estudiantes traten de participar en el aprendizaje que ofrecen remotamente nuestros profesores para prepararse para la finalización del curso.

Esto significa que, aunque todos nos enfrentamos a los desafíos que plantea la pandemia mundial, es importante que cada estudiante ponga su mejor esfuerzo en pasar sus cursos esta primavera. Tus profesores utilizan Google Hangouts todos los días y están disponibles por correo electrónico. Del mismo modo, su

Consejera de Orientación - Jessica Edwards, Trabajadoras Sociales-Tanya Dale y Jackie Davis,y la Administración- Directora Williams y Asistente Director Singh también están disponibles para apoyar a los estudiantes y familias para que usted tenga la mejor oportunidad de éxito.

Los funcionarios de la escuela se comunicarán con las familias y los estudiantes en las próximas semanas por correo electrónico y/o llamadas telefónicas con respecto a las exenciones individuales sobre los regentes. Por favor, asegúrese de que usted y su estudiante cheque su correo electrónico regularmente. Además, si por alguna razón sus números de teléfono cambian por favor póngase en contacto con nosotros en nuestros números de teléfono temporales -

Oficina principal Inglés: (914) 559-2759 (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.)

Oficina principal en Español: (845) 535-9785 (9:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m.)

Remote Learning Device (iPad) Request Form (NYCDOE)

iPad Distribution

To keep students connected and able to participate in remote learning, the DOE is lending 300,000 internet-enabled iPads to students. Priority will be given to students most in need.
