Reopening Reminder for Families

Message to Parents/Guardians & Students

Now more than ever, it is of vital importance that we ensure that our students continue to learn and receive the same supports — albeit remotely.

We want our families and students to feel our full support and have the tools they need to ensure continuous learning. Each school community will need to figure out how to stay in communication with and support and engage parents/guardians as partners in their student’s learning. 

This area of our website will serve as the main hub for all our student's remote learning needs over the next few weeks. We will be developing a channel for school staff to respond to questions from students, families and caregivers and urge you to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have during this time.

 

In the coming hours we will include directions to remote learning, links to staff web pages, helpful websites, and more to aid in the smoothest transition to remote learning. 

Important Announcements!

P.S. 68 Stronger Together, We Miss You!

Keep Your Skills Sharp Over the Summer!

The students have done such a good job working on their skills throughout remote learning and we're so proud of them! It's important that they keep up that progress by keeping their reading and phonics skills sharp all summer long. 

The fantastic reading coaches have set up logins for every K-2 student to sign in to reading.amplify.com to work on those skills.

Please click here for the list of teachers. You can find your students login by selecting their teachers name and then finding their name from the list of logins.
