Good Morning All New Dawn Students and Families-
I would like to say that New Dawn Queens is very excited to welcome you all back for the Fall 2021 semester! We will be returning to in-person instruction for Fall with no remote option available. In order to do this we will be following mask and distancing protocols as well as conducting regular student COVID testing in order to ensure everyone stays safe. Every person in the building must wear a mask at all times while in the building regardless of vaccination status so please ensure that you arrive to school with a mask.
We will be using our A/B week model and a two lunch period schedule to ensure that everyone is able to stay distanced while in the building. On a A/B week students academic week they will be in academic classes from 9am-4pm each day and on their internship week they will attend internship training at the building from 9am-12:30pm daily. Our C-week students will attend each week from 9am-4pm with no internship week. Classes will begin in-person on Wednesday September 15th with A/C students on academics and B students on internship.
In order to schedule and enroll for the Fall semester students will need to report to school over the following 3 days in order to complete yearly testing and counseling surveys after which they will meet personally with a Scheduler to review their transcripts and plan their schedule. This is very important as it will allow you to have a say in your schedule and plan your best route to graduation!
In order to keep an orderly process for this and keep wait times down, we will be using a staggered approach for scheduling over the next 3 days. Please see below for the time that you should report to school to begin the Fall semester enrollment process. Students should arrive as close to their scheduled time as possible as students who will be given priority based on arrival time and attending their assigned appointment period. If you have borrowed a chromebook from New Dawn for remote learning, please bring it along with the charger to complete your testing.
