P.S. 212 Principal’s Message
As you know the NYC Department of Education school system has temporarily transitioned to fully remote classes. We want students to continue to receive high quality lessons and engage with great curriculum that continues to support learning in all subject areas.
Please visit the teacher’s Google Classroom and follow the daily schedule of live instruction and independent work time. I strongly urge you to establish good home routines such as:
- A quiet work space or provide your child with headphones
- Reduce distractions
- Try to have your child keep the camera on so the teacher knows they are listening and focusing on the lesson.
- Encourage your child to join class discussions and talk to others so they can develop their speaking/language and social skills.
- Your child must submit their work. Videos are posted here (in English, Chinese, and Spanish versions) on our ps212brooklyn.org website to help you understand how to submit work.
- All exams should be done independently by the child without an adult providing answers.
- Parents should set an alarm so children sign-in to their meets on time.
Teachers need to plan for small group or additional tutoring support. They cannot do this without knowing how children are doing on tests and classwork. If work or exams are not submitted, a zero will be given as a grade. I encourage you to meet with your child’s teacher during their office hours 2:00pm – 2:20pm by sending them a message or email.
Report Cards grades will be given through “mystudent” on Nov. 30th. If your child has not submitted work they will receive a grade of N or NL. Please encourage them to make up the work or to begin submitting work that can be graded. In order to view your child’s report card, and other important information about your child, you will need to create an account at https://mystudent.nyc. If you have never accessed this account, you will receive an account creation code by clicking “create an account”. Your creation code is unique to your child. If you need help logging in to your account, please reach out to our Parent Coordinator, Ilia Liff email@example.com.
If you have already accessed this account, please log-in with your email and password. You can click “forgot your password” if you cannot remember it.

As part of New York City’s ongoing effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, and ensure the health and safety of our community, COVID-19 testing of staff and students will be conducted in our school once a month from now through the end of the school year. We have been notified that the testing provider will be at our school this week. Please note that only New York City public school students from grades 1-12 are eligible to be tested.

s you are aware, the City as a whole is experiencing elevated rates of COVID-19 transmission. As you may recall, last summer we established a threshold as a school system for closing school buildings and temporarily transitioning to fully remote learning: a 3% COVID-19 test positivity rate in New York City using a 7-day rolling average.
As of this morning, the City has now reached this threshold of test positivity citywide and, as a result, the DOE will temporarily close down all public school buildings, effective Thursday, November 19. This action, along with other city-wide measures, is a key component to address the concerning rise in COVID-19 transmission rates. This closure of buildings is temporary; we will work diligently alongside other City agencies and every New Yorker to bring this transmission rate back down and get back to in-person learning as quickly and as safely as possible.

If you have ongoing issues with technology to support learning at home, even after visiting our support pages (such as Getting Started with Your iPad, TeachHub, Getting Started with Google Classroom, Getting Started with Teams) please fill out the Technical Support for Families form. The form uses Google Translate in the top right corner.
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.
