  • PS 204 Message:  How To Access Your Child's Grades

     

    The DOE is asking schools to use a system called NYSSA ( New York City Student Account) to share report card grades, attendance, and other relevant information with parents.  It is very important that you set up your NYC Student Account so that you can access your child's report card remotely.  You can access NYCSA online at: Student Account

    If you need assistance creating your account or accessing an existing account, please contact Michele Wei at nwei@schools.nyc.gov

  • Letter to Families

                                                                                                                                              May 30, 2020

    Dear Families,

     

    Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility in response to this ever-evolving crisis. We are writing today to share some important updates and reminders about the end of year school calendar. We have two days coming up in June that were originally scheduled as times when students would not be in attendance. However, with the ongoing pandemic, students will be expected to participate in remote learning on both of these days:

     

    Thursday, June 4 was originally scheduled as a non-attendance day for all students in observance of Brooklyn / Queens Day (also known as Anniversary Day).

     

    Tuesday, June 9 was originally scheduled as a non-attendance day for students in schools serving grades K-8, as well as District 75 schools and programs.

     

    On June 4, all students are expected to complete work independently as staff will be engaged in professional development. Teachers are not expected to engage students on June 4; instead, schools will set students up in advance with independent work for the day.

     

    On June 9, students who attend a school serving grades K-8, or who attend any District 75 school, are expected to complete work independently as staff will be engaged in reorganization work. Teachers in these schools are not expected to engage students on June 9; instead, schools will set students up in advance with independent work for the day.

     

    If you have questions or concerns regarding the school schedule for your student, please contact your school for additional information.

     

    As a reminder, June 26 is the last day of school and a half day for all students. We will issue additional guidance to families about the end of the 2019-20 school year in the coming weeks.

     

    Thank you again for your partnership as we continually navigate unfamiliar terrain. I often say that we have the best students, staff, and families in the world. You and your children continue to prove that, every day. Together, we will continue to weather this storm.

     

    Sincerely,

    Dear Families,

     

    Earlier this week, we announced our plans for summer learning, to ensure that our students can continue to engage and receive the academic supports they need to be ready for returning to school in the fall. We are writing to you today with an update on the summer calendar, informed by feedback from DOE communities.

     

    For elementary and middle school students who are required or recommended to attend summer school, the program will start one week earlier and will run from Monday, July 6 – Tuesday, August 11. There is no change to the duration or structure of the program.

     

    For high school students who are attending summer school, courses will also start one week earlier and will run from Monday, July 6 – Friday, August 14. There is no change to the duration or structure of this program either.

     

    For students with 12-month Individualized Education Plan (IEPs) services, there will be no change to the calendar. Our teachers start on Wednesday, July 1 and students are expected to participate from Thursday, July 2– Thursday, August 13.

     

    These changes will help accelerate learning for all students. Beginning summer school earlier—closer to the end of the regular school year—allows for continuous learning for students. Concluding programs earlier also allows more time for continuous rest for your family in the month of August.

     

    We appreciate your ongoing patience and flexibility as we adapt to this crisis in real time. Nothing is more important than the health, safety, and continued academic success of your child: we thank you for your partnership in this important endeavor now more than ever.

     

    Sincerely,

  •                                                    Letter to Families                                                               May 18, 2020

     

    Dear Families,                                         

     

    Following up on our letter to you last week about the new health condition appearing in children in New York City and elsewhere, linked below is a Fact Sheet from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC Health) that provides additional information.

     

    Per NYC Health, this condition has been renamed Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C)— formerly Pediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (PMIS). The condition is rare and it is potentially life- threatening, so it is important that you know its signs and symptoms.

     

    NYC Health’s Fact Sheet conveys new information about the syndrome, its symptoms, when to seek medical help, treatments, and preventative steps. Because MIS-C is associated with COVID-19, acting to keep your child from being exposed to COVID-19 continues to be essential.

     

    As a reminder, families should help their children understand the importance of the following measures and ensure their children follow them:

     

    • As per NYS Executive Order 202.17, all people over the age of two who can medically tolerate a face covering must wear one when they are outside their home if they cannot maintain physical distance from others. Free face coverings are available at DOE Meal Hubs in all five boroughs—you can find one close to you on the DOE website.
    • Physical distancing and good hygiene remain critical, even while wearing a face
    • When outside the home, adults and children must maintain at least 6 feet of distance between themselves and others whenever
    • Parents should remind children of the importance of good hand hygiene and should help ensure that children frequently wash their

     

    The health and safety of our communities remains our top priority, and we will continue to take all appropriate measures to help keep our students, families, and staff members safe. Please visit nyc.gov/health at any time for the latest information on MIS-C, and do not hesitate to contact 311 with any questions.

     

     

    Sincerely,

  •   handsanitizer Dear Parents and Guardians,

    In an effort to promote healthy habits, teachers will be strongly encouraging students to take time at the start of meal periods for handwashing/handsanitizing.

    Teachers will be asking students to use handsanitizer before eating breakfast and snack in the classroom.  Teachers and school aides will also be asking students to use handsanitizer before eating lunch in the cafeteria.  

    Handsanitizer was on the beginning-of-year supply list for each grade.  Teachers have been and will continue to use the supply that they received from students in September.  You are welcome to send in additional bottles of handsanitizer if you would like to do so.

    Please encourage handwashing/handsanitizing at home as well and continue to speak with your children regarding ways to keep healthy.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Sincerely,

    Nancy Tomasuolo

    Principal

    Our school will be participating in the SchoolStore program.  This online program helps our school earn cash without students selling door-to-door, collecting money, or delivering products.  Over 400 merchants, including Sears, Target and WalMart.com, have joined together to offer up to 50% of sales to our school for shopping through SchoolStore.com. 

     

    To shop and support our school, simply go to www.schoolstore.com and select our school. 

     

    Participation is key in helping get the word out about our School Store. Soon your child will come home with a parent letter requesting you to help them enter email addresses to friends and family.  When you enter just 3 email addresses you'll receive a prize code your child can return the next day for a prize.  Please note:  Although it might say our fundraiser starts in January they are letting us start early for the holiday shopping.
