Here is some information on how to borrow an iPad in case you need it at home.
To keep children connected and able to participate in remote learning, the DOE is lending 300,000 internet-enabled iPads to students. Priority will be given to children most in need. All devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one device per child. Families that wish to request a device should fill out this Remote Learning Device Request form.
Additionally, your families may be eligible to receive a free at-home wi-fi service to support their child’s remote learning. Comcast is now offering free internet service for low-income families for 60 days for new qualifying customers. Families can visit https://www.internetessentials.com/ for more information. For your families with older children, households with K-12 students can get free Spectrum Wifi for 60 days (including free installation for new customers). Call 1-844-488-8395 for set up.
Finally, starting March 24, any child under 18 can receive free meals at one of 435 meal distribution sites across the City. To find a site, families should call 311 or text ‘FOOD’ or ‘COMIDA’ to 877-877.

The teachers here at St. Elizabeth are rapidly trying to figure out the best way to stay in contact with you and your child. As of right now, we will be using two forms of media: Google Classroom and Zoom. Google Classroom may be familiar to some of you, as older siblings might be using it in their classes. On this site, I will be able to post videos and activities for you to do with your child. When I have it up and running, and I will send you the link. As always, please be patient. I have used Google classroom only once briefly, and am not entirely sure what I am doing. I am getting support, but please be patient as I try to upload the videos and activities. This should be up by Monday, March 23.

I will post videos of me reading stories to the students. Please excuse the poor quality of the video. I am working on ways to better communicate with you and your child, and as soon as I know how to, I will pass the information along to you.
I will be uploading videos every day to talk to the students as though we are at Circle Time. Please be patient with me. I am learning all of this at the same time as you are. I will keep you updated on any new developments when it comes to teaching your child at home.
I am uploading the videos to Youtube, but I have it set that you can only see the video if you have the link.
