Remote Learning: Starting 3/23

In this section, you will find all the information and resources you and your child will need to navigate through "remote learning" and successfully complete the tasks from teachers as they work and learn from home. 
To help students stay connected during emergencies, the DOE is lending internet-enabled iPads to support remote learning for students. If you would like to request a device for a NYC student in your family, please fill out the form below. The DOE will use the contact information you provide to get in touch with you to discuss when and where you can pick up a device. Priority will be given to students most in need, and all devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one device per student.
Below is a check list of all the steps you must complete to get you started:
1. GOOGLE CLASSROOM: Please make sure your child has been successful added to your teacher's "google classroom".
Each student was given a gmail account which they must use logging in to google classroom (which is their first inital, their last name and the last 4 digits of their student ID number followed by Their password is their student ID number.

3. NYC SCHOOL ACCOUNT ( All parent's/guardians must sign up for a "NYC School Account". If you already have your account set up, please log in and make sure the correct contact information is linked with the account.  NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) is a web-based application that lets parents see their child’s academic and biographic information on any computer, phone, or tablet. The application is also translated into nine languages other than English. 
Please see below for steps to get set up a account:
1. Parents and Guardians can now create a basic account online from any computer, phone, or tablet. This will allow families to begin receiving emergency notifications from the DOE. To do this they need to:
  • Visit this page from any web-enabled device and click “Create an Account.”
  • Enter their name and email address, create a password, and answer brief security questions to help retrieve the password in case they forget it.
 2. Once a family has created a basic account, they must still verify their identity and relationship to a student in order to link that student to their account. You will need an "Account Creation Code letter" to complete this. Please email for the letter.
3. After they link their students, they can see grades, test scores, attendance, transportation information, test scores, and more.
4. Check out all NYC DOE resources available online for all subject areas:  The DOE has set up a "Learn at Home" info hub for parents.The materials on the Learn at Home pages are designed to provide supplementary learning resources to students in the event that students may need to be home from school. We encourage you to use this time to continue your student’s learning while they are at home. To help students engage in educational material, we have shared the resources below for students in all grades:
The materials on the grade specific pages below include: suggested daily study schedules and guides and materials for instructional activities.  
Please keep the following in mind: It is expected that during this time your children may be in need of emotional support due to the anxiety surrounding this virus. There are a number of free meditation apps available to download, as well as strategies for coping skills.  If at all possible, please try to limit your child’s social media use during the “normal” school day hours. This includes YouTube, Tik Tok, Instagram, FaceBook, etc. Too much time spent on social media may end up triggering anxiety in young people. In addition, as parents it is vital to monitor this situation closely and respond to the emotional needs of our children accordingly.
Here are some mindfulness exercises you can do at home with or without kids:
