P.S. 212 Principal’s Message
I hope you are well. This week, we have been celebrating Respect for All Week by focusing on the term KINDNESS. Students have engaged in several wonderful activities that have helped them learn about kindness in: School, Home, towards themselves and the world. They have written poetry, worked on Art projects, theater assignments, wrote letters to soldiers overseas and some classes made beautiful cards for children suffering from cancer and in St. Jude's Hospital. . This week was exciting! We all met our comfort dog, Ryder and listened as he and his handler, Ms. Eckert read a story about the power of kind words. We also found time in this busy week to learn about Black History and famous black activists who changed the course of history, learned about Chinese Lunar New Year, and of course took time to make and share beautiful Valentines!
Please be reminded there is no school beginning on Friday, February 12th. School returns on February 22, 2021. All NYC school buildings are closed and students will not be joining remotely. However, you can pick up breakfast or Lunch "to go" from the main doors daily or visit John Dewey H.S.
Please remember that all NYC DOE staff, students and visitors must complete the health-screening questionnaire prior to entering a DOE building and have temperature checked. https://healthscreening.schools.nyc/
If you travel during February break, please review the health-screening app to determine if your child must quarantine. The health screening question indicates: In the past 10 days, have you returned from a country with a CDC level 2 or higher health alert or US state or territory other than New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts, or Vermont. Please do not send children to school who have traveled during the break without checking the guidelines.
I have included the health-screening link and the Travel Guidelines for NY State. If you have any questions please call the school at 7:30 am on February 22, 2021 718 -266-4841 to review the guidelines. https://healthscreening.schools.nyc/

You can use the form to let us know what issues you are having with NYCDOE iPads or other devices including:
The DOE has loaned iPads to students across the city for remote learning. Here you will find information on how to get started with your iPad. School staff and community members can also use this information to help students with connectivity and other troubleshooting issues.
For anyone who has a DOE-loaned ipad, we have some important updates for you. It is essential that you take the actions below to ensure your child’s ipad is ready for use for return to school. The first day of school is only a few weeks away, and all students will be working remotely for at least a few days a week. Your child will need their ipad to be ready for learning for the fall. Please note that when we have other updates, we will send messages to you and your iPad on Thursdays, and we will let your schools know about the updates.
To prepare, you MUST
Some iPads have not been turned on all summer. We need you to charge and power up the ipad.
