A Word From The Principal

Dear PS 201Q Families/Guardians,


We look forward to seeing your children both in person and virtually!


If your child is learning virtually, 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.

Please make sure you know your child's Google Classroom credentials. You can reach out to the school to receive this information.

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.

Return To School

Students in Grades Pre-K through Grade 5 will return to in-person learning beginning on Monday, December 7. 

This excludes schools currently located in State-designated Orange Zones, or Red Zones if they are declared. You can see if your school is currently in an Orange Zone using the NYC COVID Zone map(Open external link).


School-Based COVID-19 Testing

In order for your child to return to in-person learning, you must submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing by the first day your child returns to their school building. There are two easy ways to submit: 

  1. Fill out the form online using a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) 

  2. Print and sign the consent form and bring it to your child’s school on the first day they are back in the school building. Here is the link to the consent forms:
