Remote Learning at Lafayette
Lafayette Academy has resumed instruction for students through remote learning as of Monday, March 23rd. Students will access lessons and assignments posted on google classroom. Please read the letters below to stay up to date with our remote learning plan. This plan may change as we adapt to the current situation - we have deep gratitude for your flexibility, understanding, and cooperation.
If you are a first responder, health care provider, or transit worker whose child is a New York City resident, and you have no other child care option, you may qualify to place your child in a Regional Enrichment Center. Please follow the link below for more information.
Due to the current nationwide spread of the coronavirus, New York City schools will be closed for the foreseeable future.
Our school community will continue to serve its students through a remote learning platform, which will roll out on Monday, March 23rd. Please read more about this platform in the link below.
Additionally, please check schools.nyc.gov for further updates, and register your student for an NYC schools account, which may be used to relay important information to families.
Regional Enrichment Centers
In order to successfully fight COVID-19, our first responders, health care providers, transit workers, and other key personnel must be able to come to work. That is why NYCDOE has created Regional Enrichment Centers (RECs)—places where the children of these front-line workers can be safely cared for while their parents continue to serve the city in this time of need. For more information about these centers, and to see if you qualify to place your child in one of these centers, please follow the link below.
