Bay Ridge Prep continues to plan for the 2020-2021 school year and is closely monitoring guidance from the New York State Education Department, the New York State Health Department, the CDC and multiple public health officials and agencies. If school buildings are permitted to open in New York City in September, Bay Ridge Prep will make its best effort to resume some in-person instruction in ways that protect the health of our entire community while supporting the social and emotional needs of our students. We have outlined below information that we have available at the moment.

Criteria for Reopening

Student Life

Distancing and low building density requirements will require a hybrid schedule and staggered arrival and dismissal times. Priority will be placed on in-person instruction each day for the school’s youngest students. In-person experiences will also be prioritized for all new students and students entering Middle School (Grade 6) and Upper School (Grade 9). Bay Ridge Prep will limit student exposure on in-person learning days. This is primarily achieved by adapting student schedules and containing them, to the extent possible, in groups while in the school building.
