Dear PS/IS 268 Family,
The PS/IS 268 School Community is strong and committed! I am positive that we will work together to successfully implement remote learning. I would like to thank parents for your efforts and support during this challenging time. I appreciate you picking up student materials and persistently trying to access our internet platforms.
Our goal is to provide all students with continued learning experiences throughout the period that the schools remain closed. Our Teachers are working diligently to provide online lessons and activities for students. K-2 Teachers are using Class Dojo and Teachers in grades 3-8 will use Google Classroom to provide video lessons, activities, and class assignments. Students will receive lesson/assignments from all Teachers and service providers.
I am aware that many of you are experiencing difficulty accessing our remote learning platforms. We are working diligently to ensure that everyone is able to access Class Dojo and Google Classroom. Please see the school website for links that will support you on using Google classroom and Class Dojo.
It is important that all students engage in learning on a daily basis. Teachers will monitor student attendance throughout this period through their daily interactions. Be sure that students check in daily, participate in class discussions and lessons, and submit their assignments on time.
Please support students in being successful by providing them a well-lit, quiet space to work. Establish routines and habits that support learning. Be sure to give students a break to stretch, do a yoga pose, and do a breathing exercise. Additionally, please ensure that students are practicing safe internet behavior.
I look forward to school reopening. Until then, stay home and stay safe.
