A Word From The Principal

Dear PS 201Q Families/Guardians,


We miss seeing your children in person each and every day. However, we are now looking forward to seeing them virtually! Although there may be some technical difficulties in the beginning, we are confident that we will work through these together.


Your child’s teacher will take attendance daily, based on the completion of their work and/or a virtual check in. Your child’s teacher will also contact you or your child about a time they will be available in real time. As a school, we will be using Google Classroom as the platform for remote learning.

If possible, we would like you and your child to try to log into their account today, so that if there are any issues logging in, we can sort them out before remote learning begins on Monday.  Your child is not expected to complete any work until Monday, March 23rd.  We just want them to log in.

There are quite a lot of steps to sign in for the first time, but after you complete these steps, logging in and completing daily tasks is a lot easier.
