Mandatory Covid Testing ApprovalThe DOE has issued new guidelines for students returning to the school building in December. Consent for random in-school testing is now MANDATORY for all students in 1st-8th grades in order to enter the 276 school building. Please see the new guidance, including information on quarantining upon return from travel.Please access your NYC Schools account (NYCSA) to provide consent. We can also accept a printout of this hard copy form but strongly encourage you to use the online portal as we are not in the building before December 7. If you completed the form prior to October 14, we ask that you resubmit the form as it has been updated to reflect that they may test "AT LEAST once a month" rather than "once a month". To re-submit, please find 'Consent Forms' under 'Manage Account'. Random testing will occur weekly and your child WILL be tested if we have your original signed consent on file.PS-IS276 02M276 - Battery Park City School
3rd Annual New York City Public School Film Festival
We are delighted to announce the 3rd Annual New York City Public School Film Festival presented by NYC DOE and the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment! The Festival will open for submissions from NYC Dept. of Education students from January 5 through March 16, 2021. Films will be selected for the Festival by a panel of educators and media professionals. Building on the immense success of last year’s virtual screening – including over 15,000 views of the 2020 selected student films, highlighted in the 2019-20 Annual Arts in Schools Report released yesterday – we are thrilled to screen the films virtually on May 6, 2021. And following the May 6thvirtual screening, student filmmakers will be invited to virtual discussions with industry professionals.
Submitted films must be 5 minutes or less, and in .mp4 or .mov format. Films must use only original or public domain music. No nudity, profanity or violent acts are permitted. Youth filmmakers must play the major creative role on the production of the submitted works — as directors, writers, and/or editors. Teacher-directed, produced or generated works will not be considered. Submission categories are:
- Short feature/narrative
Films will be selected and notification given by mid-April 2021. Online resources will be posted in the new year to support filmmakers with the technical and storytelling aspects. For full rules and regulation information, please go to:filmfreeway.com/NYCPublicSchoolFilmFestival
Hoping you can join us in this exciting opportunity for young filmmakers!PS-IS276 02M276 - Battery Park City School
