Welcome Back 6th Grade Orientation

We are excited to welcome our incoming 6th grade students and families to JHS 157!  In supporting our students with the transition from elementary to middle school, I would like to invite 6th grade students to our orientation on September 10, 2021, at 10:00AM.  The orientation is not mandatory but is being offered to provide students with school familiarity prior to our first day of class on September 13, 2021.  Participating students are reminded to wear a mask and to complete the daily health screener on September 10th found here: https://healthscreening.schools.nyc/
Location:  Beginning at 9:30AM, students will line up, socially distanced by 3 feet, on the sidewalk located at Yellowstone BLVD and 63 Drive and Yellowstone BLVD and 64th avenue outside of our school yard.  We will begin to health screen students at 9:30AM; after doing so, students will enter our school yard (parents/guardians will not be joining students in the school yard).
At 10:00AM, students in classes 602, 604, 605, 608, 610, 621, 624, 626, 627, 692 will be escorted to the auditorium from the school yard.  Students in classes 603, 606, 609, 611, 622, 623, 625, 628. 691 will be escorted to the cafeteria from the school yard (parents/guardians will not be joining students in the orientation).
10:00AM-11:00AM:  Students will participate in our orientation including a tour of the school building.  After the orientation, all students will be dismissed through the school yard at 11:00AM.  If students have permission to walk home, they may do so.  If parents/guardians/family members are picking students up after the orientation, they may do so from the school yard at 11:00AM.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
