News Blast 

Week of October 19th

Hello Landmark students and families,

I’ve appreciated all the ways we’ve found to connect in-person and remotely, despite the obstacles of COVID. I’ve enjoyed hearing laughter from classrooms and zooms, hearing ideas for clubs and senior activities, and speaking with parents one-on-one and in our Zooms. This week’s newsblast has ways for students and parents to stay connected.


Week ahead

The color-coded calendar is posted through November on out website in the dropdown menu under calendar



Parent Association Meeting / Officer Elections

We greatly appreciate your time at parent meetings, whether it’s dropping in occasionally or committing to be an officer. Hearing your feedback and suggestions greatly helps the school. All parents and guardians are welcome as always at this week’s meeting.


If you are able to commit to participating in monthly meetings as an officer, we would appreciate your service. Please contact Parent Coordinator Joel Canela.

COVID tests at school

Along with masks, ventilation and social distancing, regular COVID testing is an important part of keeping everyone safe. The DOE provides monthly, free COVID tests for randomly chosen students and staff who attend in person. The tests are nasal swabs where a sample is taken from inside the nostril (not the more painful nasopharyngeal that reaches to the back of the nasal cavity).


Thanks to families who have already submitted consent forms. Consent forms were backpacked home (here is the letter with more information and the consent form). You can consent online through the NYC School Account, following these directions.


Please take advantage of this free, convenient testing, and help keep all of us safe.


For students

Check-in survey:  Thanks to those of you who filled out our October check-in survey. So much is new and different, in our school and in the world, and we really want your thoughts about how things are going and how we can do our best as a school. Please fill out the survey here


All the best, Susanna
