Landmark High School
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.

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.
Clubs Sign up for clubs here. Note the recent addition of a cooking club.
Student Council is meeting on zoom Thursday 4:30 pm. Email Jon at email@example.com if you’re interested. Student Council elections are happening Nov 3.
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
