Dear Parent/Guardians,

We know how difficult these times are for everyone. We want you to know the P.S. 163 school community is here to support you. We understand how stressful being a parent is; supporting your family, working from home, and now, helping your children with their on-line school work.

We want you to know if you need help or support with technology, instruction, or emotionally, we are here for you.

  • Your child’s teacher is available to answer any of your questions or concerns. They can give you resources to help.
  • Our school aides are calling daily to check in with you and your children. They too are there to help. 
  • Check the School’s website www.ps163.org as it is updated daily with news, and if needed, additional activities for you.

Please have your child sign on to Google classroom MySchools Account https://mystudent.nyc everyday and have your child do their best to complete their work. Our teachers understand that some children may not be able to be online during certain hours. Please know that students’ work will be accepted if completed outside of the regular school day.

If you or your child becomes ill and unable to log on, contact your child’s teacher. Please be assured they will have an opportunity to make up the work.

If you need additional activities for your children at home please check the NYCDOE website https://www.schools.nyc.gov/learning/learn-at-home . Make sure your child is reading independently everyday. Have your child draw or write in a journal everyday, responding to what they have read or recording their thoughts and feelings.

As always, the administrative team is here to help. Please feel free to contact:

Parents can access online learning through the DOE like iready, microsoft teams, office (word, etc.) scholastic and more if they login to their student accounts. 
 

https://idp.nycenet.edu/pkmslogin.form?token=Unknown

I know you mentioned this but there is a direct way of doing this through the DOE site, also teams is available to students if teachers are looking for a more secure site to video chat.
 
The way that families create user names and passwords on this site is they scroll down to students and enter the oasis numbers and retrieve their username. Then they create a password.
I have tried different students and helped parents but then they can't access the actual assignments from the teacher, they have to rely on google classroom.  
 
Another thing I noticed is when teachers linked Envisions to their google classroom, they created new envisions accounts that are not linked to our Admin page.  I can explain more, but I know the teachers have already started using the sites and assigning work on their pages but it is not showing up on the admin page or the doe log-in to Envisions.  
 
The only time it becomes an issue is if parents login to the doe page and go to envisions, they will not find their student's work.  This became an issue for parents on Friday that told me Google Classroom was giving them trouble and they wanted to access envisions directly.  When  I gave them the login info they signed on to their student's accounts and couldn't find the assignments.  They can only be found if they logon through google classroom, because they are accessing Pearson accounts that are not linked to the school's admin page.
 
For example
Here is where you would logon to pearson if you were going directly to pearson.  You can also access iready from this site, and teams, nyplibrary and other resources.
I can explain more on Monday, but I just wanted to let you know about all these systems issues.

 

Beginning today and for the next four weeks, 400 grocery boxes a day prepared by FreshDirect will be picked up by participating Queens community-based organizations (CBOs) to distribute amongst their constituents, including seniors, low-income families and other vulnerable populations across all 14 Queens Community Districts.  The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will assist transporting some of the bulk grocery boxes to limited CBOs.

Letter from Chancellor-March 22, 2020

Dear Families,

Tomorrow, we will all come together to take the first steps of a huge new educational journey as New York City brings remote learning to our 1.1 million students.

While none of us could have predicted even a few weeks ago that we would launch this dramatic new transition in education, I could not be prouder of the way our educators have come together to ready themselves to teach your children from their own homes. And I could not be more grateful to all of you for your faith in our educators, and all of the hardworking staff at DOE.

This will not be perfect. Nothing can ever replace a talented teacher in a classroom. We know the challenges and inequities our students face. But over the past week I have seen DOE’s 150,000 staff rise to this challenge in astounding ways. Your faith is them is deserved and earned.

Things have moved very quickly since Mayor de Blasio and I made the very difficult decision one week ago that school buildings would close for student instruction until at least April 20. Educators citywide created a remote curriculum in days. Every school has been equipped with an online platform. Learning resources, including those for special education and multilingual learners, have been developed and posted on our website—and there is so much more to come.

All the relevant information you need about engaging in remote learning is on our website at schools.nyc.gov—please visit it frequently for updates. And please check in with your teachers and principals if you have questions: just as they were before last week, they will continue to be your guide to instruction and (virtual) engagement during these unprecedented times. I will share a few key pieces of information here to keep in mind for this week:

 Remote Learning: Each school has its own online platform, with many schools using Google Classroom. Educators have contacted school communities to let you know what remote learning tool your child’s school will be using. o You can find instructions on DOE student accounts and getting started in Google Classroom and Microsoft Teams at schools.nyc.gov/learnathome.

o If you are having additional problems connecting, contact your school directly via email. Our Find a School tool can help you find contact info for your school as well, if you do not already have it: schools.nyc.gov/find-a-school.

 Electronic Devices: If your child needs a device to participate in remote learning, and you have not yet filled out a device request form, please visit coronavirus.schools.nyc/RemoteLearningDevices. We will help you get a device with internet connection.

o Many of you have already received a device on loan from your school. If you have not and you still require a device, please fill out the survey and DOE will reach out to you.

 Students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs): If your student is recommended for integrated co-teaching, special class, or special education teacher support services, your school will make every effort to arrange for them continue to receive instruction from the same special education teachers and classroom paraprofessionals that usually teach them. Someone from your school will contact you to discuss how instruction will be delivered.

o Your child’s IEP meetings will still take place; IEP meetings will be conducted by phone. To make a referral for initial evaluation or reevaluation, you can email your principal or specialeducation@schools.nyc.gov, or call 311.

o For more on remote learning for students with IEPs, please visit schools.nyc.gov/learnathome.

 Free Meals: We will continue offer free meals in the weeks ahead at more than 400 sites across the city. Food hubs will operate Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. through 1:30 p.m., and any student of any age can get 3 meals daily. Visit schools.nyc.gov/freemeals to find a site near you.

 Regional Enrichment Centers: On Monday, March 23, the City will open Regional Enrichment Centers (RECs) for the children of front-line workers in the fight against COVID-19—including first responders and healthcare workers. If you believe your child may be eligible to attend a REC, please visit schools.nyc.gov/recs.

 Enrollment and Placement Support: Family Welcome Center staff are available by email, and are prepared to assist with enrollment and placement of new admissions, questions around admissions, information about offers, and waitlists. They do not handle REC enrollment. o Please be aware FWCs are processing a high volume of questions at this time in connection to the recent release of high school admissions offer letters. We ask for your patience, and are aiming to respond to all requests within 48 hours. Here’s how to receive direct support on these topics:

 Bronx: bronxfwc@schools.nyc.gov

 Brooklyn: brooklynfwc@schools.nyc.gov

 Manhattan: manhattanfwc@schools.nyc.gov

 Queens: queensfwc@schools.nyc.gov

 Staten Island: statenislandfwc@schools.nyc.gov

Parents can also call 311 and say “Schools” to be routed to someone who can help with school related questions.

If you need help with a problem that cannot be resolved at the school level or wish to report a complaint, please reach out to your district superintendent’s office. Contact information for your district support team can be found here: schools.nyc.gov/about-us/leadership/district-leadership. If you do not know the district in which your child’s school is located, please use the Find A School tool: schools.nyc.gov/find-a-school.

There will surely be bumps in the road as we all adjust to this new reality, and I want to thank you for the patience that will be demanded of you as we undertake this transformation together.

In just a few hours, we will all take a great leap together into uncharted territory. We will be successful if we continue to work together as a community of families, educators, and staff. We all share two key goals: a high-quality education for every single one of our 1.1 million students, and protecting health and safety of everyone in our school communities.

That means that public education in New York City is going to look tremendously different for the foreseeable future. But together, we will chart this path forward, and I have no doubt that we will eventually look back and say this was our finest hour: when we confronted this great challenge and overcame it, in unity, with shared strength and commitment.

New York City has the greatest students and staff in the world, and nothing will ever change that—today, tomorrow, or ever. I am excited to be on this journey with you. Together, I am confident we will learn and grow with boundless potential.

Sincerely,

Richard A. Carranza

Chancellor New York City Department of Education

 

明天,我們大家將一起邁出新的一步,展開紐約市大型的新教育旅程,為 110 萬學生帶來遠距教 學。 幾個星期前,雖然我們沒有人會預料到在教育上會展開這次戲劇性的新轉變,但是,教育工作者 已一起合作,做好準備,在家裏教育大家的孩子,我對此感到無比驕傲。我也十分感謝大家對教 育工作者和努力不懈的教育局職員的信任。 這個做法雖然不完美。沒有東西可以取代教室裏有才幹的老師。我們知道學生要面對的挑戰和不 平等。但是,在過去一周,我們看到 15 萬職員以驚人的方法迎戰這個挑戰。他們當之無愧得到您 對他們的信任。 自從一個星期前我和白思豪市長作出非常困難的決定,宣佈學校大樓關閉至少到 4 月 20 日,學生 不上學後,事態發展得非常快。全市的教育工作者在數天以內制訂了遠距教學的課程大綱。每所 學校都已經安裝了網上平台。學習資源,包括給特殊教育和多種語言學習者(Multilingual Learner)的資源,都已經制訂完成,並放在我們的網站上,陸續還有更多東西。 有關參與遠距教學所需的資訊都在我們的網站:schools.nyc.gov,請經常瀏覽查看最新的消息。如 果您有疑問,請與子女的老師和校長聯繫:就像一星期前一樣,在這段前所未有的時期,他們將 繼續在教學和(虛擬)參與上為您引路。我在此告知大家在這個星期要記住的一些重要資訊:  遠距教學:每所學校都有自己的網上平台,很多學校都使用「谷歌教室」(Google Classroom )。教育工作者已與學校社區各人聯絡,讓您知道您子女的學校將使用什麼遠距 教學的工具。 o 您可以在以下網站找到教育局學生帳戶使用說明和「Google Classroom」(谷歌教 室)和「Microsoft Teams」(微軟團隊協作平台)的開始使用說明: schools.nyc.gov/learnathome。 o 如果您在連接時有其他問題,請用電郵與子女的學校直接聯絡。如果您沒有這些資 訊的話,我們的「Find a School」( 查找學校)工具也可以幫助您找到您子女學校的 聯絡方法:schools.nyc.gov/find-a-school。  電子設備:如果您的子女需要設備參與遠距教學,但仍未填寫要求設備的表格,請瀏覽: coronavirus.schools.nyc/RemoteLearningDevices。我們將幫助您拿到一部可以連接互聯網的 設備。

Mañana, todos juntos daremos los primeros pasos de un nuevo e importante viaje educativo, ya que la Ciudad de Nueva York comenzará el aprendizaje a distancia para nuestros 1.1 millones de estudiantes. Aunque ninguno de nosotros podría haber anticipado hace unas semanas que iniciaríamos esta nueva y radical transición en la educación, no podría estar más orgulloso de la forma en que nuestros maestros se han preparado para enseñar a los estudiantes desde sus propios hogares. Le agradezco su confianza en nuestros maestros y en todo el personal del Departamento de Educación (DOE) que trabaja arduamente. Esto no va a ser perfecto. Nada puede reemplazar a un maestro talentoso en un salón de clases. Conocemos los desafíos y las desigualdades que enfrentan nuestros estudiantes. Sin embargo, en la última semana he visto a los 150,000 empleados del DOE hacer frente a este desafío de manera asombrosa. Ellos se han ganado y se merecen su confianza. Todo ha ocurrido muy rápido desde que el alcalde Bill de Blasio y yo tomamos la muy difícil decisión hace una semana de cerrar las escuelas hasta por lo menos el 20 de abril. Los maestros de toda la Ciudad crearon un plan de estudios a distancia en solo días. Todas las escuelas han sido equipadas con una plataforma en línea. Se elaboraron recursos de aprendizaje, entre ellos los destinados a la educación especial y a los estudiantes multilingües, que ya se han publicado en nuestro sitio web. Queda mucho por venir. Toda la información importante que necesita para participar en el aprendizaje a distancia está en nuestro sitio web en schools.nyc.gov. Le pedimos que lo visite con frecuencia para obtener actualizaciones. Además, consulte con los maestros y el director de la escuela si tiene preguntas: al igual que antes de la semana pasada, seguirán siendo su guía para la enseñanza y la participación (virtual) durante estos tiempos sin precedentes. Esta es parte de la información clave que debe tener en cuenta esta semana:

 Aprendizaje a distancia: cada escuela tiene su propia plataforma en línea y muchas escuelas usan Google Classroom. Los maestros les han informado a las comunidades educativas sobre la herramienta de aprendizaje a distancia que usará la escuela de su hijo. o Puede encontrar instrucciones sobre las cuentas de estudiantes del DOE y sobre cómo empezar a usar Google Classroom y Microsoft Teams en schools.nyc.gov/learnathome. o Si tiene problemas para conectarse, comuníquense con su escuela directamente por correo electrónico. Si aún no tiene la información de contacto de la escuela, podrá encontrarla a través de la herramienta Find a School en schools.nyc.gov/find-a-school.

 Dispositivos electrónicos: si su hijo necesita un dispositivo para participar en el aprendizaje a distancia, y aún no ha llenado un formulario para solicitarlo, visite coronavirus.schools.nyc/RemoteLearningDevices. Le ayudaremos a conseguir un dispositivo con conexión a internet. T&I 31203 (Spanish)

o Muchas familias ya han recibido un dispositivo en préstamo de su escuela. Si usted no lo ha recibido y aún necesita un dispositivo, llene el formulario y el DOE se pondrá en contacto con usted.

 Estudiantes con Programas de Educación Individualizado (Individualized Education Programs, IEP): si su hijo recibe coenseñanza integrada, clase especial o servicios de apoyo ofrecidos por un maestro de educación especial, su escuela hará todo lo posible para que continúe recibiendo enseñanza de los mismos maestros de educación especial y auxiliares docentes que normalmente le enseñan. Alguien de su escuela se pondrá en contacto con usted para conversar sobre cómo se impartirá la enseñanza.

o Las reuniones del IEP de su hijo se seguirán realizando, pero ahora por teléfono. Para presentar una solicitud de remisión para una evaluación inicial o revaluación, envíe un correo electrónico al director de su escuela o a specialeducation@schools.nyc.gov o llame al 311. o Para obtener más información sobre aprendizaje a distancia para estudiantes con IEP, visite schools.nyc.gov/learnathome.

 Comidas gratuitas: seguiremos ofreciendo comidas gratuitas en las próximas semanas en más de 400 lugares de la Ciudad. Los centros de comida funcionarán de lunes a viernes de 7:30 a.m. a 1:30 p.m., y los estudiantes de todas las edades pueden recibir tres comidas diarias. Visite schools.nyc.gov/freemeals para ubicar un lugar cerca de su hogar.

 Centros regionales de enriquecimiento académico: el lunes, 23 de marzo, la Ciudad abrirá los centros regionales de enriquecimiento académico (Regional Enrichment Centers, REC) para los hijos de los trabajadores de servicios vitales, incluidos los de primeros auxilios y del sector de la salud, que continúan su lucha contra COVID-19. Si cree que su hijo reúne los requisitos para asistir a un REC, visite schools.nyc.gov/recs.

 Apoyo para la inscripción y asignación: el personal de los Centros de Bienvenida a las Familias (Family Welcome Centers, FWC) está disponible por correo electrónico y está preparado para ayudar con la inscripción y la asignación de nuevas admisiones, responder preguntas sobre el proceso de admisión, dar información sobre ofertas de cupo y listas de espera. Ellos no son los encargados de la inscripción en los REC. o Tenga en cuenta que los FWC están procesando un gran volumen de preguntas en este momento en relación con la reciente emisión de las cartas con las ofertas del proceso de admisión a la escuela secundaria. Le pedimos paciencia y esperamos responder todas las consultas dentro de las 48 horas después de haberlas recibido. A continuación se indica cómo recibir apoyo directo sobre estos temas:

 El Bronx: bronxfwc@schools.nyc.gov

 Brooklyn: brooklynfwc@schools.nyc.gov

 Manhattan: manhattanfwc@schools.nyc.gov T&I 31203 (Spanish)

 Queens: queensfwc@schools.nyc.gov

 Staten Island: statenislandfwc@schools.nyc.gov

Los padres también pueden llamar al 311 y decir “Schools” para ser derivados a alguien que los pueda ayudar con preguntas relacionadas con la escuela. Si necesita ayuda con un problema que no puede ser resuelto a nivel escolar o desea presentar una queja, comuníquese con la oficina del superintendente de su distrito. Aquí encontrará la información de contacto del equipo de apoyo de su distrito: schools.nyc.gov/about-us/leadership/district-leadership. Si no sabe cuál es el distrito de la escuela de su hijo, utilice la herramienta Find A School: schools.nyc.gov/find-a-school. Seguramente habrá obstáculos en el camino mientras nos adaptamos a esta nueva realidad, y le agradezco su paciencia a medida que iniciamos esta transición juntos. En pocas horas, todos juntos daremos un gran salto hacia un territorio desconocido. Si continuamos trabajando en colaboración como una comunidad de familias, maestros y personal, lograremos un buen resultado. Todos compartimos dos objetivos clave: lograr una educación de calidad para cada uno de nuestros 1.1 millones de estudiantes y proteger la salud y la seguridad de todos los miembros de nuestras comunidades educativas. Eso significa que la educación pública en la Ciudad de Nueva York se impartirá de una manera completamente diferente en el futuro inmediato. Sin embargo, juntos, trazaremos este camino hacia adelante y no tengo ninguna duda de que finalmente miraremos hacia atrás y diremos que este fue nuestro mejor momento: cuando nos enfrentamos a este gran desafío y lo superamos unidos, y con una fuerza y un compromiso en común. La Ciudad de Nueva York cuenta con los mejores estudiantes y el mejor personal del mundo, y nada cambiará eso, ni hoy, ni mañana, ni nunca. Estoy entusiasmado de iniciar este viaje con ustedes. Juntos, estoy seguro de que aprenderemos y creceremos con un potencial sin límites.

Atentamente,

Richard A. Carranza

Canciller Departamento de Educación de la Ciudad de Nueva York

Mission Statement at PS 163Q

  

The Mission of P.S. 163Q is to engage all students in learning experiences that build upon their strengths and natural curiosities. We believe that each and every student is special and unique, enabling us to better understand and nurture their gifts.Through a partnership with parents and teachers we will create an engaging, rigorous environment where students are able to talk about their thinking, challenge their ideas, grow new ideas, and put their thoughts into action. Through this collaboration, we are creating a body of learners that will have the skills to be the change agents of today’s world.  Our students will “USE THEIR MINDS TO CREATE CHANGE”.

Would like to share that at 11:05 this morning, I was informed by the Department of Transportation that they will be paving the streets surrounding the building over the next several days.  This will heavily impact our ingress in the morning.  The streets should be passable by afternoon pick-up.  Please, if you can, leave some extra time in the morning to navigate around possible road closures.  I thank you for your patience as we maneuver around another construction obstacle.

Quería compartir con ustedes que a las 11:05 de esta mañana, el Departamento de Transporte me informó que estarán pavimentando las calles que rodean el edificio durante los próximos días.

Por favor, si puede, deje algo de tiempo extra por la mañana para navegar por posibles cierres de carreteras. Les agradezco su paciencia mientras maniobramos alrededor de otro obstáculo de construcción.

In promoting the citywide goal to help support students’ social and emotional growth, I am very pleased to announce that PS 163 has developed a program called “EAR Time.”  Twice a month, students will meet with a staff member one period to discuss Emotions, Actions and Respect.  There will be two cycles.  Each child in grades K-5 will be part of one cycle. The first cycle will begin in October and end in January and the second will begin in February and end in May.  We are very excited to begin this program and look forward to working with each child to build upon their social and emotional strengths.

为支持全市范围的目标,帮助学生提供社会和情感上的增长,我很高兴地宣布,PS 163将开始我们开发的 “EAR时间”。每个月两次,学生将会和一名工作人员见面,一起讨论 情绪,行动和尊重。 将有两个周期。 K-5级的每个孩子都将成为一个周期的一部分。 第一个周期将于10月开始,1月份结束,第二个周期将于2月份开始,5月份结束。 我们非常高兴开始这个计划,并期待与每个孩子一起努力,以建立他们的社会和情感优势。

Al apoyar la meta de la ciudad para ayudar a apoyar el crecimiento social y emocional de los estudiantes, estoy muy contento de anunciar que PS 163 comenzará lo que desarrollamos como "EAR Time". Dos veces al mes, los estudiantes se reunirán con un miembro del personal para discutir Emociones, Acciones y Respeto. Habrá dos ciclos. Cada niño en los grados K-5 será parte de un ciclo. El primer ciclo comenzará en octubre y terminará en enero y el segundo comenzará en febrero y terminará en mayo. Estamos muy emocionados de comenzar este programa y esperamos trabajar con cada niño para construir sobre sus fortalezas sociales y emocionales.
