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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Families, 5/13/2020
The DOE has a Webpage for Parents that translates all letters sent home, as well as, Interpretation for Remote Learning resources.
Click on the link below to access.
Dear Parents and Students;
The iPads you have received belong to our school. They are remotely managed, which means you cannot reset them and put in your information.
1. If you need to download an app you can use our Apple ID password. It is case sensitive which means it must be typed exactly. You can get the Apple ID from your teacher if you were not given it when you picked up your iPad.
2. If you have your own Apple ID account you can logout of our account and use yours, but you need our password to log out of the account.
3. Our Apple ID can not be used to purchase any Apps.
TO ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS:
In order to receive emails from the NYCDOE you must have an email account.
1. If you DO NOT have an email account please create a GMAIL account using the link below:
Once you create this account please click here to create a NYC Student Account.
2. If you DO have an email, but have not created a NYC Student Account, please click here.
3. If you already have a NYC Student Account for your children you will be able to receive NYCDOE emails.
Please complete these directions, as soon as possible, so that you and your children can be provided with the most current information. Thank you.

Welcome to P.S. 204's Website!
Our translatable website was carefully designed to fullfill the needs of parents and teachers. We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and if you need assistance or have any questions, please call Michele Wei at (718) 236-2906 or email at Mwei@schools.nyc.gov
We encourage all families to become members. Your donations help support activities and purchases made throughout the year; from updating technology, the Halloween Parade, Pre-K, Kindergarten and 5th Grade activities and graduation gifts to many various items needed for the classrooms such as printers and ink. Every donation counts and is greatly appreciated. Click here for PTA Welcome Letter. Each class who has a 100% response will receive a pizza party.
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.
