CRB's Second Semester Hybrid Reopening Plans

Hybrid Classes begin February 2021

Learn more about our plans for our:

 Academics   Athletics  |  Corporate Work Study Program  |  Social/Emotional Support  | 


  • Asynchronous learning means that students are given independent online work to be done on their own time.

  • Synchronous learning means students will attend a live Zoom session for each class.


Reopening notice and winter storm:

We receive confirmation that a student has tested positive for Covid-19. The last time this student was in the building was Monday, January 25th. This student always follows protocol and safety procedures however, we are going to take additional precaution by requesting that this student's cohort and the teachers who teach this group, to quarantine for the entire week. 


With one group remaining at home, and their teachers, we are unable to launch the sophomore hybrid schedule and to carry out the responsibilities for the freshmen group as well. To be fully transparent, without a full faculty and staff on-site, that would leave for too many coverages where students would be in classes without their actual teacher. A situation like that, would be less than ideal for teaching and learning and relationship building. Both are critical aspects for community building in support of emotional and social well being for our community members. 


With that said, we will have to postpone hybrid learning for ALL until Monday, February 8th. That means, all freshmen and sophomores participating in hybrid learning will continue to work from home this week. 


  • freshmen will log into Zoom classes on Monday and Wednesday, as if we were in the building. 

  • Sophomores will log into classes on Monday and Tuesday. 

  • All students should refer to PowerSchool for the Q3 schedule


Winter Storm:

Based on the projected weather for tomorrow, we are planning to have all members of our community work from home on Monday, February 1st. That means all academic classes, CWSP, ASP and all counseling will be fully remote. We will continue to monitor the storm in order to determine the best safety plans for Tuesday, February 2nd. 


In closing, we ask that you pray for our community member who is recovering and to respect this person's privacy. Let's consider this person's well being and the family! 


Once again, we will update the community regarding our continued plans to provide ASP, CWSP training and counseling throughout the week. Hybrid learning for all will resume on Monday, February 8th. 


Until then, be safe, be smart and be kind to one another! 



Each week, students will have:

  • 2 days of live Zoom classes

  • 1 day of independent work

  • 1 day of Corporate Work Study 

  • 1 Flex day

Students are expected to participate 8am to 3pm daily

During Orientation:

  • Information will be provided virtually

  • Students will pick up textbook and devices, on a staggered schedule


The official start date of fall sports has been delayed to Monday, September 21, 2020.  More information will be announced shortly regarding measures to keep our student-athletes and coaches safe.

Meanwhile, please make sure you submit all required paperwork.

If you have any questions regarding the Athletic Program please contact Matt Kenny, Director of Athletics, at


Corporate Work Study Program


The Corporate Work Study team is working hard to make sure that all students can have a safe and productive CWSP experience when we return to school. CWSP is an integral part of Cristo Rey Brooklyn and all students are required to participate in some way. Outlined below are methods for student participation. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to us via email at or phone (516) 341-1642

Pre-Placement Training (incoming students)  

  • All incoming freshmen will participate in Pre-Placement Training on his/her assigned work day (either Tuesday or Friday) for the length of a school day.  

  • All students must complete Pre-Placement Training before they are eligible to be matched with a work placement. 

  • Pre-Placement Training will hopefully take place on site, but could also be made fully virtual (which would consist of a combination of synchronous and asynchronous lessons). Pre-Placement Training will follow all guidelines of the academic schedule.  

    • If the academic schedule is fully virtual, then Pre-Placement Training will also be virtual. 

    • If the academic schedule is hybrid, then Pre-Placement Training will take place in person at school, following all social distancing and health guidelines. 

  • Pre-Placement Training will cover the skills students need to be successful at work, including computers, professional communication, phone skills, and more!

On-Site Work (sophomores, juniors, and seniors)  

  • Students will be matched with a work placement and will report directly from home to work (instead of reporting to school first and then traveling to work).  

  • Prior to beginning onsite, a member of the CWSP Team will review the safety policies set forth by the company with the student and the family. 

  • Students will follow all safety procedures outlined by the company and agreed upon by the company, CWSP, and the family. 

Remote Work (sophomores, juniors, and seniors)  

  • Students will be matched with a work placement and will report to school on their work day. 

  • Students will communicate with their supervisor(s) through email, chat, phone call, and / or zoom call. Students will complete projects for their supervisor while in the school building. 

  • A member of the CWSP team will be present to assist students and answer questions throughout the day. 

Ongoing Training / Professional Development (sophomores, juniors, and seniors)  

  • Students will not be matched with a work placement and will instead participate in ongoing training / professional development. 

  • Ongoing training / professional development will be fully virtual, with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning.


Social and Emotional Support

  • Individual and group counseling is available to all students in person or via Zoom. 

  • Weekly advisory program for Freshmen, Sophomore, and Juniors to build community and strengthen relationships. 

  • Individualized, targeted support for the college process for all Seniors via weekly one-on-one meetings. 

  • Peer Leadership: Seniors mentor Freshmen, meeting every other week on Mondays.
