All students should complete this daily attendance form as early as possible every day!

Student Responsibilities for Remote Learning

1. Students will be required to complete the following Google Form EVERY DAY as attendance. Please complete the following as homeroom attendance: Attendance Form

2. Your teacher will post work for you to complete each day. You must check-in and respond to work for the following 4 periods each day:

  • Period 1: ELA
  • Period 2: Math
  • Period 3: Science
  • Period 4: SS

For elective courses (Art, Music, Coding, STEM, Physical Education, etc.) check into your Google Classroom on the days you normally have these classes (if you normally have art on Monday and Thursday, sign into your Art Google Classroom on Monday and Thursday and participate in class work).

Make sure you JOIN and log into every one of your teacher’s Google Classrooms (included related services such as speech, guidance, etc.) at some point throughout the day. If you don't know your codes, you should email your respective teachers. AGAIN, remember to join every one of your classes, and complete required assignments, including assessments. You must be present and participating to get credit for each course for this marking period.

3. Be respectful and courteous in every learning session.

4. Use the stream function to ask questions and contribute to class discussions, not for side conversations that are distracting to the teaching-learning process. This is not a social media account, it is only a school-related forum.

5. If you need technical support such as password reset, please complete this form: Password Reset Form

We have developed a set of school-wide protocols that will be in effect each and every time a student joins and participates in a Google Classroom, or communicates with teachers. If you need to speak to your guidance counselor (because you feeling sad or upset) or dean (because you are experiencing online bullying), you could email them here:

Cooper, L. --> lcooper@schools.nyc.gov

Dean Grade 6/7/8 odd classes

Kitsakos, D. --> dkitsakos@schools.nyc.gov

Dean Grade 6/7/8 even classes

Madonia, L.--> epapali2@schools.nyc.gov

Guidance 7/8 odd classes

Rousseau, U. --> urousseau@schools.nyc.gov

Guidance 7/8 even classes

Gennaoui, A. --> agennaoui@schools.nyc.gov

Guidance 6th Grade

Thomas, L. --> lthomas54@schools.nyc.gov


We know that the transition to remote learning poses new responsibilities for students. We are confident that if we all work together, we will be able to create and sustain a positive and productive online learning environment for you and your classmates. Thank you for your cooperation and your positive outlook during this challenging time!

Be well, stay healthy and we hope to see you back on the designated April 20 date!
