Welcome To The Cobble Hill School of American Studies

Principal Anna Maria Mule’
Phone: 917.727.5072


Dear Cobble Hill Family,
It is now mid April and spring is in the air!  We were getting closer to the end of the year,  and with that in mind we have been ramping up our supports and refining our protocols in order to ensure better student experiences.   In order to address the student concern that there was not enough independent work time during the day,  we added an asynchronous period a day in addition to the lunch period.  Students do not need to log in to their zoom and teachers do not need to take attendance for asynchronous periods.   However, teachers are always on zoom or google meets during scheduled  asynchronous periods so that can conduct small group or individual instruction for any students who choose to participate.  Additionally, we encourage all students to log into their zoom meetings.  I have visited many lively,  fun and well attended zoom meetings over the course of the year.  The zoom meetings help students  to understand the concepts and skills being taught and allow students to construct meaning for themselves.  However, if students are not able to attend all the instructional materials and lessons need to be available on google classroom.   Lessons need to be flexible enough that they can be accessed either online, in meetings,  and even in paper form.  Assignments need to be meaningful and not overwhelming.  If you are experiencing an overwhelming amount of work being assigned, please contact me at amule@schools.nyc.gov.   Cobble Hill faculty have been working hard and are responsive and reflective.   We will continue to adapt and make changes if we know that there are challenges at hand.  So, please do not hesitate to let us know positive as well as any negative experiences you may encounter.  
If you are still interested in attending school in person for the rest of the year, please let me know as soon as possible.  While all classes are conducted remotely, in school students have access to internet, technology and can receive support from school personnel.  
I am also looking forward to meeting all of our students this week at our grade level assemblies and I encourage all students to attend afterschool clubs and activities. Additionally, Summer Youth applications are currently available.  Please reach out to Ms. Vemic for more information.  
Please remember that the end of the marking period is April 30.  There are no new assignments  for this marking period after April 23rd.  Please let me know if you are experiencing any challenges or concerns with any of your classes.  I can be easily reached at amule@schools.nyc.gov.  
Be positive, be strong and be resourceful! You are all rock stars!

Grade Assemblies, SAT DAY #2, NYCDOE 2021 Senior Kick-Off, and STEM Summer Camp- "THE LINK": CHSAS Activities Weekly (#15K519) 4/19/21


Dear Cobble Hill Parents/Guardians,
I hope this email finds you well. To promote better time management for students and families and to promote more authentic learning and student participation in live instruction versus an emphasis on completion of assignments we will be implementing the following schedule beginning Monday, April 5th. 
  • Mondays: All core social studies classes asynchronous
  • Tuesdays: All math classes asynchronous
  • Wednesdays: All core science classes (i.e. non-biomedical) asynchronous
  • Thursdays: All non-AVID ELA courses asynchronous  
All students are encouraged to participate in all synchronous periods by attending live classes. Our live classes consist of an inquiry-based workshop model and a WICOR (writing, instruction, collaboration, organization, reading) approach to instruction. Synchronous instruction takes place for the entirety of the period (i.e., the full 45 minutes).  Please know that teachers post unit-based PBAs (performance-based assessment) at the beginning of the marking period to ensure that students have as much time as possible to wrestle with the task. 
Additionally, the last week of every marking period is utilized as a time for teachers to share meaningful feedback with students regarding their level of mastery of the learning targets for the course. Since the 2nd Marking Period ends Friday, April 30th all assignments are due no later than Friday, April 23rd.  No new assignments will be posted after Friday, April 23rd.  The last week of the marking period is set aside for revision/make-up and or enrichment. 
If you have any questions or concerns, regarding synchronous or asynchronous learning time or any other questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me directly via email at amule@schools.nyc.gov or via phone at 917-727-5072 at any time. We will send out another email at the start of the next marking period. We wish you an enjoyable Passover, Easter, and spring break. If you are available, please feel free to join us at the PTA meeting happening later today at 5:00 PM. All the best. 
Warmly, Anna Maria Mule'

A message from the principal.

Dear Cobble Hill Students and Families,
 Yay!  The Holiday Break is almost here 🎄.  I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday and a very happy, safe and healthy New Year. 
Some announcements and shout - outs for this week include:
We have our Holiday Bazaar this Tuesday at 1:15.  Please join us!  The Student Government and AP Gentile have  worked hard to organize a fun filled virtual event for all of us.  Additionally,  I want to thank Serena Edwards for hosting last week’s BLM spoken word event organized by Ms. Leborious.  The next one will be held in January.  We also held our 11th grade assembly last week, where guest speakers spoke about the college application process. Our 12th grade assembly was great too!  The Peer Leaders and Senior Committee did an excellent job of organizing games to get us all inspired and motivated!  Kudos Ms. Hodges and AP Rodriguez for advising these two groups! 
Finally, please join me on congratulating Ms. Vemic on her wedding this past weekend.  Let’s wish the happy couple a lifetime of joy and happiness!  
Holiday Break starts Thursday, December 24 and we return to school Monday, January 4,  2021.  
All the best,
Anna Maria Mule’

Messages for Families - February 11, 2021

School-based COVID-19 Testing

Dear Parents/Guardians,

In order for your child to return to in-person learning, you must submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing by the first day your child returns to their school building.

Mandatory in-school testing will happen weekly for a random selection of staff and students in all reopened school buildings. In order for your child to return to in-person learning, you must submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing by the first day your child returns to The Cobble Hill School of American Studies.

  • Submitting consent to have your child tested for COVID-19 in school is quick and easy. If you have already submitted consent, we encourage you to do so again to ensure your child has the latest form on file. There are two easy ways to submit:
  • Fill out the form online using a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) (Open external link)
    • If you already have a NYCSA account linked to your child: Log in, click your child’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a dropdown menu appears, click “Consent Forms.” Read the page, and then choose the consent option at the end for your child.
    • If you do not already have a NYCSA account: You can create one right away! If you have an account creation code from your school, you can create a full account in approximately five minutes, and then provide consent as described above. If you do not have an account creation code from your school, you can still provide your consent right away by clicking “Manage Consent” under “COVID-19 Testing” and filling out your and your child’s information to provide consent.
  • Print and sign the form and bring it to your child’s school on the first day they are back in the school building. A printable PDF file is available in ten languages, under Consent Forms below.

The test is easy, quick, and safe. Instead of the “long swab” that goes in the back of the nose, this test is a short, small swab (like a Q-Tip) that goes just in the front of the nose. Later this school year, it is possible that tests will be administered by collecting a small amount of saliva (spit). The whole test will take about two minutes.

We want to assure you that if your child is selected for testing but is uncomfortable or unable to be tested, we will not test your child and will work with you to address any concerns so that they can participate in future testing. We are focused on making this a brief, and gentle experience for our students, led by trained testers.

If your child is tested, DOE will let you know they were tested and when and how you will receive the results, which will typically be provided within 48-72 hours.

Visit the Supplemental Information for Parents About DOE Agreements With Outside Entities to read answers to a number of questions vendors provided about their privacy and data security practices. The vendors are BioReference Laboratories, Fulgent Genetics, and Somos Healthcare.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

DOE has received over 400,000 responses from families and students to a survey asking about preferences and concerns for the upcoming year, and your input has been critical in our planning.

As you understand, we will begin the 2020-21 school year in an unprecedented way—including new health protocols, physical distancing, and more. However, our students will still be learning 5 days a week. A major difference is that we are preparing to deliver their education through a blended learning model. Blended learning means students will be taught on-site in school for part of the week, and will attend school remotely on the other days of the week.

Any family can also choose all-remote learning, for any reason. But we know that the majority of families want as much in-person instruction as is safely possible, and we will work to maximize it at every turn, consistent with health and safety requirements. We will continue to lead with the lens of equity and excellence, giving your child what they need to excel—and recognizing the ways that will be different from each of their classmates, especially in a time of crisis. We will not look away from the ways this virus has further magnified the effects of systemic racism in our communities. We will continue to explore opportunities to directly correct structural inequities—like closing the digital divide.
