    Dear IS 162 Families,                                                                                              March 16, 2020

    We recognize that these are unsettling times for you and your children. Please know that we are all in this together. Our goal is to keep everyone as safe as we possibly can and as connected to their learning community as circumstances allow. At this time, schools are now scheduled to resume on April 20,2020.

    Because there are so many details to sort through, I will be working with the Department of Education, the Superintendent's office and my leadership team on decisions and recommendations for our students over the next few days. I will be in touch with our 162 school community as more information becomes available.

    We will continue to update our website, which should answer many questions that you may have. You can also check the NYCDOE website at for all Coronavirus updates.

    All of our teachers currently have sites (or will be creating sites) on Google Classroom. Starting Monday, March 23rd, remote learning will begin. If you do not have access to internet at home you can call 1-844-488-8398 for free internet service from Spectrum. Students should check the Google Classroom on a daily basis. Teachers will communicate with their students via Google Classroom. Students can also visit Pupil Path to keep up to date with their grades. 

    We recognize that this is a new form of learning for our students and families. We are working to make learning at home as seamless as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We wish you and your families the very best and I am confident we will get through this together.
