As many of you know, there is a Global Climate Strike planned for this Friday, September 20th in advance of the United Nations Climate Action Summit on September 23rd. I am writing to let you know first what School of the Future will be doing in the morning as a community (page 1), and then what you need to know about student participation in the city wide strike at Foley Square at 12:00 (page 2).
Please see link below for form and turn this into the box labeled CLIMATE STRIKE in the main office!
Representatives from SoF’s senior class are organizing a school wide walkout and rally around Gramercy Park from 10:35 – 10:55. Families are welcome to join us! Any student who does not wish to participate for any reason can stay in the auditorium with staff members during the walk out. We respect and encourage students’ voices and perspectives on all sides of this issue and hold no judgement regarding students who do not participate on Friday.
Students who participate will leave with their third period class and teacher and return to their third period class. We will take attendance by 11:10 in our 3rd period classes and any missing students will be reported to the administration. Students not participating will stay in the auditorium.

The Department of Education has confirmed that High School students are allowed to attend the Foley Square Rally with valid parent permission. Middle School students are allowed to attend if their guardians pick them up from school and bring them. Students who follow these guidelines in order to legitimately attend the Climate Strike will have an excused absence or partial absence. Please note that School of the Future staff will not be attending this rally as chaperones.
Here are details:

A physical examination form is necessary for all students trying out for Fall/Winter/Spring sports. If your child already has a HS PSAL physical form on file at the school, it will be valid for ONE YEAR from the original examination date. All new physicals must be signed and stamped by your physician (or from a doctor at a walk in clinic such as City MD), and must be completed on the updated PSAL physical examination from. As per PSAL rules, any other forms (such as a computer printout from your doctor) will NOT be accepted.
In addition to a physical form, a parental consent form is also required for tryouts. Please make sure ALL 13 parts are initialed by a parent or guardian (not by the student).
