Everyone living in the United States and its five territories is required by law to be counted in the 2020 Census.

Ms. Ruiz here. Hello 👋
Kristen Williams
55:30
has there been a talk of either PTO money for technology or a drive for families that have extra to donate?
shawnfolz@yahoo.com
57:19
There is no way grading can be fair and equitable, especially when some students have not been able to access digital learning during the closure. We need to move to Pass/Fail for this Marking Period. Other schools do this. Can 187 do this?
Joy Waitkus
57:39
Great idea
Joy Waitkus
57:53
about raising money for computers
shawnfolz@yahoo.com
58:17
We could price out Google Chromes.
TAHEL RASOULY
58:41
the PTO could organize a drive but the school will have to distribute the devices
shawnfolz@yahoo.com
59:07
How many kids and in what grades - is the need?
Lynn Goldstein
59:14
I am not sure if this is the right venue for this question but I noticed that the school lot was locked up today. I know that Cuomo closed the playgrounds which is appropriate but he said that open spaces were going to remain open. The school lot is an open space. I live across the street and I believe the space was being used appropriately. Social distancing was being followed but it is a space that allows kids to scoot and ride bikes which is so much needed at this time. Can someone please address if this closure was just an accident or if that space is planned to be locked up going forward?
Liz Ruiz
59:21
maybe a tech go fund me
Gerry Goss
59:37
I can ask that question Lynn
Joy Waitkus
59:43
Can’t we vote in this forum?
shawnfolz@yahoo.com
01:00:07
The DOE is supposed to provide the tech!!!
shawnfolz@yahoo.com
01:02:19
WHEN is DOE providing the tech? What is the extent of this problem? Sorry to be harsh, but if a bunch of Kindergartners don’t have a laptop, I am not concerned. If it is 5-8 that’s different.
Devon Badolato
01:03:25
Would it be possible for me to bring up a typing program that I have been working with Administration to bring to students k-8
shawnfolz@yahoo.com
01:03:28
FYI, the school yard is a DOE property, not NYC Parks. It is part of the Playgrounds to Parks program, but ultimately the school is responsible for the space.

01:03:44
Someone asked this question at a previous PTO meeting.
TAHEL RASOULY
01:03:46
some parents didn’t pick up books, any chance to give them a second chance?
Dena Wolk
01:05:12
Anyone can complete a remote learning device request here ( I am sure it may take longer than expected)

Stephanie Reed

Any updates regarding spring recess? Is it definitely cancelled? If it is will it be the same schedule ?
shawnfolz@yahoo.com
01:06:45
You have to copy/past the link. Clicking on the link didn’t work.
Joy Waitkus
01:06:49
That’s great Ms. Badolato
Stephanie Reed
01:07:16
Good question about spring recess. Is it happening or no?

Will children need to continue classwork during spring break?
shawnfolz@yahoo.com
01:08:24
And Zoom has privacy issues, and it’s all too much tech in general.
Y Murga
01:08:25
I agree!!!
Carrie Ho
01:08:32
the typing class will be introduced to all students later?
Vanessa Suero
01:08:45
Agree!!! Great job to all the teachers. It is really hard time and you are putting it all.
Melina Rosario
01:09:00
I think parents need a break through all this to help with reset once spring break is over and go back into classwork.
Gwendolyn Kingsberry
01:09:04
Agree! WE LOVE OUR TEACHERS AND ADMIN!!!!
TAHEL RASOULY
01:09:12
zoom is hippa compliant, not sure which privacy issue we are talking about

live teaching is important for some kids, doesn’t have to be mandatory
