A Message from the Principal


Principal's Weekly Message

January 14, 2022

Dear PS 64 Families,

We hope this message finds you well, as we continue to do our best to navigate the uncertainties with the Omicron variant.  Continue to keep your child home when s/he is experiencing symptoms and call the school whenever your child is absent.  We have about 75 students absent daily, with most being for non-COVID reasons, so please either call the school or email Ann Gonzalez at agonzal@schools.nyc.gov and copy the teacher.  It presents a burden to our office staff to make so many phone calls to find out the reasons for your child’s absence.  We need you to work with us on this.

If your child arrives home with a COVID test kit, you must administer the test on both Day 1 and Day 5 and alert us with any positive results.  We are attaching a flowchart to help you decide the best course of action for a potential COVID situation. 

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Lori Koplin to our teaching staff.  Ms. Koplin will cover class 3-238 for the remainder of the school year while Ms. Ritterband leaves us for the joy and blessings of motherhood.  Her last day is next Friday, January 21.  Welcome, Ms. Koplin.  Love and blessings to you, Ms. Ritterband. 

There is a PTA meeting next week on Thursday, January 20.  Originally this was scheduled to be an in-person event, but we will switch to virtual due to the Omicron surge.  A Zoom link will be provided next week.  Hopefully, we can return to in-person meetings in the spring. 

You are reminded that all NYC Public Schools are closed on Monday, January 17, in observance of Martin Luther King Day.  The life and legacy of Dr. King serve as a good reminder of our responsibility to work for justice and to spread compassion and mercy wherever we go. 

Wishing you a restful and peaceful weekend, I remain,

Yours truly in service,

Marlon L. Hosang
