Our COVID Response

Welcome to our COVID response page. Below you’ll find all the critical information about how Baychester Middle School is changing the way we operate to reduce the risk of COVID infection.

We are doing everything we can to make sure staff, students, and families are safe.

Please check back regularly, as we will update the information here as conditions change.

The NYC DOE Return to School 2020 site section also has important information and resources for you.

During hybrid or 100% remote learning, your child is expected to complete all assignments provided by the teacher. At the same time, we recognize that working independently at home is different and difficult for many students, so we want to provide flexibility. 

  • Students and families should check Google Classroom daily for important updates from their teachers.
  • When signing in for virtual classes or meetings, students are expected to be on time, appropriately dressed, and ready to learn. We suggest signing in 5 minutes before class starts. Please try to reduce background noise and distractions as much as possible.

Google Classroom Support

All classes and classwork can be found on Google Classroom.  

Teachers use Google Classroom both for classwork and for meeting with their class daily.  Scholars can join the class by following the schedule for their group and clicking on the Meet Link at the top left of their Google classroom. 


If you’re having trouble accessing Google Classroom, you can click on this short video from Ms. Leebens and then email the teacher to let them know you are having trouble.

Scholars received new schedules for Cycle 2 hybrid instruction that started on October 1, 2020.  If your student is missing their schedule, you can email their advisory teacher.  Students follow different schedules based on whether they are fully remote or hybrid.
