Dear Families,  


New York City Public Schools (NYCPS) are dedicated to ensuring that every student can learn uninterrupted, including during disruptions caused by building closures. To accomplish this goal, we want to make sure that our students and staff are prepared for successful remote learning. NYCPS has developed a practice plan to support and improve schools' readiness in the event a transition to remote learning is necessary.  Morris H. Weiss, P.S. 215 has been selected to participate in the first round of tech readiness activities on December 4, 2023. 


What does that mean for your child?  

  • Your child will still come to school. In school, there will be at least one period where the teacher will engage the students in a digital activity to ensure that all students understand how to log on to a device and to their digital accounts.  
  • In addition to the in-class activity, the teachers will assign a short task for students to complete at home. Please ensure your child completes the digital activity at home.  
  • If your child does not have access to either a personal internet-enabled device or a NYCPS-issued device at home, be sure to reach out to us to request a device.  
  • Thank you. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Goins or Stefanie Fischetti .
