Academic School Year
What is the current status of the upcoming academic school year?
As of right now, we are following the NYDOE guidelines. We are committed to open the schools for Fall 2023. As soon the Mayor announces to open schools, we will follow the safety procedures and will inform you on our website: amityschool.org. When decisions are made, we will make sure we provide all information to our students and parents immediately.
What are the implications if a student lacks access to high-speed internet and is unable to connect to their current location?
In such a scenario, we strongly recommend that the student reach out to either Ms. Candik, the Guidance Counselor (email@example.com), or Ms. Elvina, Assistant Principal firstname.lastname@example.org
They will provide necessary assistance to ensure students can effectively access remote learning resources.
What is the schedule for remote learning?
Please refer to the daily schedule at our school database system. The schedule was updated to better help the needs of our students and our parents.
Since students no longer have access to lunch and transportation, are these fees included in the current arrangement?
No, you need to contact our Business Manager to discuss getting a refund for the months the remote learning was in session.

Is it necessary for students and individuals coming to retrieve their belongings to bring their own personal protective equipment?
Certainly, all visitors entering our campus are mandated to wear face masks and gloves upon their arrival at the school premises.
What steps is the school taking to keep COVID-19 away from the campus?
To ensure the safety and well-being of our school community, we have implemented a comprehensive set of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on our campus. These measures include:
Enhanced Cleaning Protocols: Our custodial team is rigorously disinfecting and cleaning high-touch areas and common spaces throughout the day.
Social Distancing: We have reconfigured classrooms, seating arrangements, and common areas to maintain appropriate distancing between students and staff.
Face Coverings: All students, staff, and visitors are required to wear face masks or coverings while on campus.
Health Screenings: Daily health screenings, including temperature checks, are conducted for everyone entering the campus.
Hygiene Practices: We are promoting frequent hand washing and sanitizing, and hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the campus.
Remote Learning Options: For those who cannot attend in person, we offer remote learning to ensure continuity of education.
Ventilation and Air Quality: Our ventilation systems have been optimized to increase fresh air circulation.
Quarantine Protocols: We follow strict guidelines for individuals who have been exposed to or tested positive for COVID-19, including necessary quarantine periods.
Communication: Regular updates and guidelines are shared with students, parents, and staff to stay informed and ensure compliance with safety measures.
Collaboration with Health Authorities: We are closely monitoring guidelines from health authorities and adapting our protocols as needed.
These measures collectively contribute to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all members of our school community.
If I am not participating in U.S.-based studies while remote learning is in progress, what impact does this have on my F-1 status?
Sevis has proved updates regarding the F-1 status of students who are studying outside of the U.S. They state below:
If a school closes temporarily but offers online instruction or another alternative learning procedure, nonimmigrant students should participate in online or other alternate learning procedures and remain in active status in SEVIS. Given the extraordinary nature of the COVID-19 emergency, SEVP will allow F-1 students to temporarily count online classes towards a full course of study, even if they have left the United States and are taking the online classes from elsewhere.
If I am graduating and require the transfer of my I-20 to a U.S. college or university, what steps should I follow?
Please email Ms. Elvina (email@example.com) before the end of the spring term, and she will transfer your sevis record to the school you will be attending in the Fall. If the college requires a transfer form, please be sure to send it to Ms. Elvina so she can also fill out the form and return it to you.
