A Message From The Principal

P.S. 212 Principal’s Message

Greetings 212 Families,
 
I cannot believe that it is already October and the Fall weather is upon us.  The new school year has not been typical or "normal" for any of us.  However, we are committed to helping children engage and participate in learning each day.   Our teachers and staff are working very hard to plan for curriculum and instruction in all subject areas while still integrating the arts, movement, health, social-emotional learning and Social Studies/Science.  
 
Currently, about 95% of our students are online and participating consistently.   Please stay committed to learning and having your child engage with us so that they can continue to learn new information.  This is what "school" will look like until things return to normal.  Report cards will be sent home in early November and parent teacher conferences will take place virtually.    Please know that we are here for you and your child every step of the way.   Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

or on REMIND.   
 
Thank you and be safe!
Rina Horne

Getting Started with Your iPad

Getting Started with Your iPad

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.

iPad Update August 13, 2020

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 

Turn on the iPad

Some iPads have not been turned on all summer. We need you to charge and power up the ipad.

Turn Airplane Mode On and Off

This will reset your internet connection

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Find the Airplane Mode button
  3. Turn Airplane Mode on for ten seconds (button turns green)
  4. Turn Airplane Mode off and wait until the ipad reconnects to the internet 
  5. You will see the connected icon at the top of the screen
  6. Go to schools.nyc.gov to make sure your ipad is connected to the internet - all DOE-loaned ipads have internet access.

Sign into Zscaler

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:

  1. Return to the main screen.
  2. Tap the Zscaler icon.
  3. Once Zscaler is open (you don’t need to sign in), wait for the “Service Status” to say “ON”.
  4. Close Zscaler.
  5. That is it. You can use the iPad normally now.

Sign into the Learn at Home App

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:

  1. Find the Learn at Home icon on the main screen on the iPad
  2. Log in using your @nycstudents.net account (only use the student’s username and password, no need to include @nycstudents to log in)
  3. From the Learn at Home app your child can access TeachHub, Google Classroom and get help.

Good news! Your child’s iPad is Now a Hotspot

That allows you to connect other devices used for remote learning to the internet. It is easy:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Find Personal Hotspot and click to take you to the login screen
  3. Select Allow Others to Join
  4. Devices other students in your house are using for remote learning can be added to that connection
  5. As a reminder, as with the ipad itself, the hotspot connection is to be used only to access remote learning activities. Any unauthorized use is strictly prohibited

Parents and Guardians: We’ve made it easier to sign up for a NYC Schools Account (NYCSA).

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.
