Important Events/ School Calendar

HIDEC School is planning to return to an in-school learning model for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. HIDEC’s goal is to maintain a more consistent in-person model for students, as it remains the most effective and successful approach to learning for our students. However, our program is prepared to transition into remote learning immediately if necessary. Posted at the bottom of the page is a copy of our reopening plan organized by HIDEC’s “COVID Administration Team”.  This document will continue to be reviewed and updated based on the information and guidance provided from the NYS/NYC DOH and NYS Education Department. ** Please be aware that HIDEC will be following the same protocols put forth in the 2020-2021 school year for the health and safety of our students, families and staff. The only change that will be made from the original protocol is optional masks outside ONLY for students and staff.**

Specifically, the document outlines the essential elements that will include HIDEC’s reopening plan, as well as recommended best practices for moving forward in these incomparable times. ** Please be aware that HIDEC will be following the same protocols put forth in the 2020-2021 school year for the health and safety of our students, families and staff.
