As we grapple with COVID-19, completing the 2020 Census is even more important now than ever. The number of New Yorkers who are counted will determine how much funding we receive for our schools and public services over the next 10 years. City schools receive more than $781 million every year in Title I funding, based on census data. In addition, the census helps determine funding for early learn centers, in-school and after school youth programs, childcare programs, and other services that support our school communities. You can play an active role in ensuring an accurate count by urging staff and families to complete the census online at my2020census.gov, or by calling 844-330-2020, and completing the brief survey, which is open until October 31. Principals should share this information with staff including parent coordinators and families by June 26.
Please visit the NYC 2020 Census page on InfoHub for strategies and resources to inform and empower your school community to be counted.
During COVID 19 closure please fee free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.

Still Need a Device?
For Students: As you know, we want to ensure our students continue to learn, and that will mean each of them will need a device. While you wait for additional guidance regarding distributing existing devices at your school, please continue to encourage families, particularly those who do not have access to an internet-connected device at home, to complete the Remote Learning Device Request Form or call 718-935-5100, and choose option 5 to request a device, which will be distributed on a rolling basis. This multi-lingual flyer will also help to promote the survey to all members of your school community. For more information about the form, see here.
This is a challenging time and in order to keep everyone safe, the New York City Department of Education made the decision to close all schools with the hope of reopening April 20, 2020. The expectation for our school community is that we all transition to remote learning on Monday, March 23, 2020.
Teachers will continue to post assignments and provide instruction and students are expected to complete them. For graduating Seniors this is very important, New York State still requires successful course work and state assessments for graduation. Students please keep up with the coursework. Our school's webpage is the portal for assignments and the platform to other sites your teachers may direct you to in order to complete work.
The school will still offer grab and go meals between 7:30 and 1:30 pm. If you are not feeling well and do not have a doctor, please call 311 for assistance. If you need wifi Spectrum is offering it free for those in need.
