Reopening Plan

Atmosphere is currently in session using our blended instruction model. Atmosphere will also have a full remote instruction option available for families who need it. Once the state allows, we will of course look to work our way back to being full in-person everyday, but New York is not there yet.

Blended Instruction

Atmosphere continues to provide scholars with a full instructional program through blended instruction from 7:40 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday. Students follow a full course schedule, attending six 70-minute "classes."

Blended Instruction is a hybrid learning model consisting of in-person and remote days.

Students in 6th & 7th grade will be divided into Group A and Group B with each group receiving 2 days per week of in-person instruction and 3 days per week remote instruction.

Group A will come in on Monday and Thursday.

Group B will come in on Tuesday and Friday.

8th grade will not be divided into two different groups. 8th grade students & staff will follow the Group A schedule.

This will ensure that only half of any grade cohort will be in the building on a given day.

When groups are in-person, they will have class in spaces where maximum social distancing is possible like the gym for a group of 25 or a classroom for a group of 12.

Physical Education will take place outside whenever possible with proper social distancing whether inside or outside. When exercising at a distance, students can remove masks for safety purposes related to breathing.

As some scholars have chosen to attend remote only, teachers will simultaneously instruct scholars at home and in the classroom during in-person days. For this reason, the use of Zoom and Google Classroom are required for all scholars.

Instruction on remote days is live and dynamic. Teachers are actively interacting with students while they complete a lesson consisting of virtual activities during an assigned period. Teachers provide feedback in real-time and design/modify lessons accordingly. Attendance is granted only to active participants on Zoom.

Please reference our posted presentations, direct emails for specific schedules and details.
