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.  

Opt In to In-Person Learning

Students in Grades Pre-K through Grade 5 who are in-person learning will report to school 5 days a week. Our current blended learning schedule allows for in-person learning 5 days a week.

Our remote families will now have one more opportunity to transition to blended learning this school year. This means that if your child is currently learning remotely every day, they will be able to opt in to learning in person in the school building at least part of the week for the remainder of the school year. We will make every effort to provide as many days of in-person learning as possible.

When and How to Opt In to Blended Learning

  • Beginning this Wednesday, March 24, you can visit the Learning Preference Survey to select blended learning for your child.

  • Families can also call 311.

  • You can change to blended learning until Wednesday, April 7.

When Your Student Can Return to the School Building
Students in P.S. 201, who opt into blended learning during this opt-in window will return to buildings in April.
Updates will be posted on the
DOE's Coronavirus Updates page.


Requirements for Returning to the School Building
If you select blended learning for your child, you must submit the consent form for random COVID-19 testing by the first day your child begins in-person learning. You can submit your consent for testing one of two ways:

  • Through your New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) under "Manage Account", or

  • Complete and sign the consent form available here and bring it to your child’s school on the first day they are back in the school building.

Families that select blended learning are expected to have their child attend in person on days they are scheduled to do so. If your child is currently learning fully remotely and you do not complete the survey indicating a preference for blended learning, your student(s) will remain fully remote.

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:
