P.S. 212 Principal’s Message
End of Year and Summer Information June 21, 2021
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help and collaboration to make this year as successful as possible. This year, parents took on a new role and helped children as their “at home” teachers during remote sessions. Some families experienced a blended/learning model and in December were able to transition to a 5 day in person model. Whatever the model, I am thankful for your partnership with our teachers and community to bring children as positive a learning experience as possible. These children are our heroes and we are very proud of them.
I wish you all a safe and beautiful summer and look forward to returning in September to a full in person learning program. As you know, the Mayor and Chancellor of NYC schools have announced that there is no remote option for September and that schools will follow the CDC & Health guidelines that are in place when we return. You will be notified of your child’s class and teacher name in August via OPEROO. Please check your account or contact our parent coordinator, Iliff@schools.nyc.gov for assistance. Your child should come in on the first day of school which is September 13th and know their class grade and number. School arrival and dismissal information including first day procedures, will be posted on our school website, and sent to families in August via Operoo.
You can view your child’s report card on on June 25-26th using the Mystudent account https://mystudent.nyc/
Please continue to have your child read, use Iready Math and ELA, RAZ kids and practice math facts skills. You can visit our school website: www.PS212brooklyn.org for reading book lists, skill building websites and the supply list 2021-22. School supplies should be labeled and brought in during the week of September 13-20th.
At this time, we do not know if masks will continue to be required in September, but I urge parents of current remote students to practice with their child. We will be following all safety guidelines and we want children to be prepared and comfortable.
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 every week 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.
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.
This will reset your internet connection
To ensure your child is using the internet with all the safety the DOE requires to protect your child. You will need to sign into the content filter application, Zscaler. Follow these directions, or see the instructions on our Zscaler page:
To get ready for the first day of school, make connecting to learning and support much easier for your child (and you, too!), and allow you to get notifications on the iPad:
That allows you to connect other devices used for remote learning to the internet. It is easy:
Setting up a basic account will allow you to get emergency notifications from the DOE.
You can create a basic account online from any computer, phone, or tablet. All you need to do is:
· Go to https://mystudent.nyc/saa/signup
· Set up the account by:
o Entering your name and email address,
o creating a password, and
o answering a few brief security questions so you can reset the password if you forget it.
After you create your account, you will need to verify your identity and your relationship to that student. You can do that at the upcoming Parent-Teacher Conferences on 3/5/2020. Once you do that you will be able to see your child’s grades, test scores, and attendance.
You can also reach the administrative team or receive important notifications daily by joining our Family Remind App. The information can be found on this website under "Important Announcements."
