Weekly Update #18

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you for all the valuable feedback that you have been providing as Mrs. Golia continues to meet many of our families for the first time. Here are some important updates and reminders as we move into the final week of January 2021.

Homework/Asynchronous work: After reviewing the results of the parent homework survey, and discussing this topic at the SLT meeting, we will be implementing the following asynchronous work/homework policy. Please visit this link for the detailed policy:


iReady Diagnostic Assessment: iReady testing is close to completion and we want to remind all fully remote families to ensure that your child logs in to take these assessments in the next few days if you have not already done so. We will be reaching out to families of students who have not yet completed the assessments in both ELA and Math.

RAZ Kids Mid-Year Assessment: Students in grades K-5 are being assigned a RAZ-kids online assessment to complete at home.  Due to the nature of the test students need to record themselves reading. 

New York City Schools Account (NYCSA): It is important that all families sign-up for a NYCSA. This account gives you access to your child’s report cards, state tests scores, attendance, and other valuable information. If you do not have a NYCSA, you will need a creation code, provided by the school, and your child’s 9 digit student ID. Please contact the Parent Coordinator for assistance (agolia@schools.nyc.gov). Next week we will be reaching out to parents who have not created their account. You can find more information at NYCSA.

Snack Sale Return: On Wednesdays during the instructional lunch, children will be offered the opportunity to purchase snacks for $1 as we have offered in the past at P.S. 184Q. Students have made requests to bring this opportunity back. Exact change should be sent in for this purpose. School aide will be circulating to provide the snack and collect the money. We will be using the funds to support school initiatives.

REMINDERS

  • Traffic Safety: There should be no double or triple parking by any of our entrances and exits and family members dropping off and picking up children should not block any driveways or private residences.
  • Masks: All adults are strongly encouraged to wear masks around the vicinity of our building and especially while interacting with school staff or other parents and guardians. Even outdoors, you may be putting school staff and other school families at risk if you are interacting with them without wearing a mask.
  • Fall 2020 School Experience Survey: The survey is now available online and you are invited to share your feedback by taking it at School Experience Survey.
