Our UPK Services in both Academy of Excellence and Center of Excellence offer remote learning to all students, with Academy of Excellence only offering 100% remote learning. It will be a difficult transition, but we have staff with decades of expirience that can handle it. We value the health of our students and their family over everything else.
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, along with the Department of Education, will determine our classroom capacities and availability.
Our locations are now offering free UPK Program for children who will be 4 by the end of the school year applied for.
Parents and family of UPK students are encouraged to get vaccinated for Covid-19 while doses are still available for free. More information on getting free vaccines can be found here.
Parents of students must have taken COVID-19 Vaccine in order to apply. While students are not required to have the Covid-19 Vaccine, other immunizations have always been required to enter the public school system:
