Welcome to I.S. 141!
Rigorous academics in a caring and supportive environment is the hallmark of I.S. 141. This will not change as we venture into a new approach in education, i.e. 100% remote learning or a blended learning model, for academic year 2020-2021. After consulting with all of its stakeholders, I.S. 141 has selected Model 1B as its blended learning model. Model 1B offers students in Group A to attend school at I.S. 141 on Tuesday and Wednesday and remotely on Thursday and Friday. Students in Group B will attend school at I.S. 141 on Thursday and Friday and remotely on Tuesday and Wednesday. Group A and Group B will alternate on Mondays.
Supply lists are posted on the home page of the school's website. Please note that art supplies will be added to the supply lists as supplies will be not shared during academic year 2020-2021.
We are looking forward to a wonderful school year!
