Remote Learning

Remote Learning Begins Monday, March 23

We hope all families are healthy and safe. Please see the information below from the school to prepare for remote learning.

Access to Technology and WiFi


The NYC Department of Education wants every student who needs a device for remote learning to have one, even if the student does not have internet access.  If you or someone you know does not yet have technology and/or WiFi, call 718-935-5100 and choose Option 5 on the menu. Someone will help you get a device with internet connection.

You can also complete this survey https://coronavirus.schools.nyc/RemoteLearningDevices which will allow for the city to assign hardware and a WiFi Hotspot.
