Effective Immediately: REMOTE LEARNING ONLY UNTIL 1/18/22

December 21, 2021

 

Dear UACHS Community,

 

Due to a sharp increase in the number of Coronavirus cases over the last few days, and in consultation with the Jersey City Department of Health and our Board of Trustees, all students will switch to REMOTE LEARNING ONLY effective tomorrow, Wednesday, December 22, 2021.

 

Students may come to the school between 8am and 10am on Wednesday to collect their Chromebook or any other belongings they will need for virtual learning or over the winter break, if they need to. This will be the only time they will be able to do so. Any student who does not have reliable wifi at home should see Ms. Chenelle to obtain a tablet/hotspot. 

 

Grab and go lunches for multiple days will be available on the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday December 22nd (8:00am-10:00am)
  • Thursday December 23rd (11:00am-12:30pm)
  • Monday January 3rd (10:45am-1:15pm)
  • Wednesday January 5th (10:45am-1:15pm)
  • Monday January 10th (10:45am-1:15pm)
  • Wednesday January 12th (10:45am-1:15pm)

 

All students, including those on home instruction must login to their first period class by 10am for virtual instruction. Teachers will post Zoom links on Schoology and/or Google Classroom by 10am on Wednesday. See below for the class schedules for Wednesday and Thursday:

Attendance will be taken and absences and lateness will count as they normally do during in-person learning. Parents/guardians should report any absences to the school by calling 201-200-3200.

 

Any issues with Chromebooks or wifi access should be reported to Mr. Jauregui (technology@uachs.org) immediately. Students can obtain passwords for Schoology, iXL, etc. from their teacher or Ms. Chenelle (schenelle@uachs.org).

 

Please be on the lookout for the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 in your household.    Symptoms can include but are not limited to: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Not everyone with COVID-19 will get any or all these symptoms. If your child is sick heading into the holidays, please consult with a medical professional and get tested. Maintain your vigilance and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at elugo@uachs.org or by leaving a message at 201-200-3200.

 

Enjoy the holidays with your families, continue to stay safe, take all necessary precautions, and get your vaccinations/boosters ASAP!

 

Yours in education,

 

Mr. Erie Lugo, Jr.
