Latest Updates from DREAM

Updated June 18, 2021

  • Family Town Hall: In case you misses it, you can watched the DREAM Family Town Hall on Our Full In-Person Reopening from June 9, 2021 here

  • Updated Policies: As we look toward the summer, we wanted to give you an update about our health and safety policies for the coming months, based on a recent update to the NYSDOH’s Interim Guidance for In-Person Instruction. In keeping with these updated recommendations, effective today DREAM will no longer require students and staff to wear masks during outdoor school activities, including our outdoor programming this summer. As always, family choice remains a crucial part of everything we do here at DREAM. If you want your child to continue to wear a mask for now, or if they have a health condition that requires them to do so, then of course, that continues to be an option for you.

  • State’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program: We want all DREAM families to be aware that applications are now open for the state’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program. You can find a primer on what you need to know here, and you can apply here.

  • Vaccines: If you and your family need assistance scheduling a vaccine appointment, please email DREAM at familysupport@wearedream.org.

  • Summer Programming at DREAM: We are so excited for Summer 2021! Visit our DREAM Programs page to learn more and see how you can register your scholar in the DREAM Summer Programs today.
