Hi Families, REMOTE LEARNING UPDATE: 3/18/20


We know there is a large amount of information coming your way, and ask that you continue to read and carefully review every message. Our latest update:
The NYCDOE has created Google accounts for every student. Classroom teachers have most students' usernames. Parents/Guardians have to create the password. Here is the link: https://idm.nycenet.edu/students/start.form Please reach out to your child's teacher with any questions regarding Google accounts. Please be patient- this is new for all of us, and we are working super hard to make this as smooth as possible for both you and our teachers and staff.
Your child's classroom teacher and cluster teachers have been working non-stop to have Google Classroom up and running by Monday- they are the best!
While we are transitioning to Google Classroom, we made workbooks/packets available. This is for you to use while we are getting the technology ready. Send a Dojo to your child's teacher if you or your child has a question about the learning in these paper resources.
We are attempting to provide families with some of our PS17 tech devices. This is based on a Dojo that came from your child's teacher. We are in the process of contacting those of you who responded. Please make note of the following regarding devices:
You can still make a request if you are in need of a device (try to use Dojo)
Some of you have more than one child. We are not able to give each child a device.
We do not have a device for every single family. Our devices also do not come with internet service. If you are in need of any type of technology, including internet, please complete this survey from the NYCDOE: https://coronavirus.schools.nyc/RemoteLearningDevices
Thank you,
Rebecca Heyward
