Dear TAOTS families,
As you are aware, our school, PS 682, The Academy of Talented Scholars was initially identified by the City for closure due to its location in a zip code with higher than citywide average of transmission rates. The State subsequently initiated a new cluster action initiative to address COVID-19 hot spots. Per the State’s zone designations, our school is located in a geographic area identified as a “precautionary zone” (“yellow zone”). Schools in these zones—including ours—are safe to open, and PS 682, The Academy of Talented Scholars will re-open for in-person blended learning for students and staff this Monday, October 26th.
I can’t thank you all enough for your support and patience as we continue to navigate the 2020-2021 school year.
Ms. Appelbaum, our Parent Coordinator will be in touch with additional information for our families.
