P.S. 212 Principal’s Message
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.

This year our annual Halloween Parade does not seem possible as per the CDC and Health Social Distancing Guidelines.
However, we will host a 212 Spook-tacular Costume Day for students to dress-up if they wish. Visitors and parents will not be permitted to attend. We are planning for a simple walk around the building where students will receive pre-packaged treats to collect in a treat bag they receive. The treats will be pretzels, lollipop or smarties. A staff member will hand them out wearing gloves as students walk the building with their class while maintaining 6 ft. distance at all times. We will only have one class walking at a time. We assure you safety is our priority but we also want to provide the students with a variation of our annual school event. We only have approximately 60 students in the building for each cohort day. Staff will be in costumes on October 30, 2020.
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.

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:

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.
