The DOE’s Parent University invites families to attend a one-hour virtual course entitled, “COVID-19 Vaccines: What You Need to Know,” which will be held at 10:00 a.m. and at 6:00 p.m. on September 29. The course is being taught by experts from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), and includes updates about COVID-19 vaccines, as well as a live question-and-answer session. Please share the information with families as soon as possible, by backpacking home this flyer with students in your school.
As previously shared, the DOE’s Parent University seeks to educate and empower all families from early childhood through adulthood, with free courses, resources, events, and activities. Please continue to make families in your school community aware of this resource by emailing these flyers; translated versions are available in all DOE-supported languages on the Family and Community Empowerment (FACE) family-facing webpage.

We were thrilled to welcome students back to the classroom—and in-person learning—this week! It was a joyous homecoming as students, teachers, school staff, and families reconnected in schools throughout the city. We are proud to once again be serving our students in safe, healthy, supportive classrooms where they can grow socially, emotionally, and academically. Please visit this DOE website for the most up-to-date information on the historic 2021-22 school year: schools.nyc.gov/homecoming
Our Student-Parent Handbook will serve you with pertinent information regarding NYC procedures and academic policies. It will also include PS 101 school-level protocols in which all families and students must abide by and respect. Please refer to this handbook:
Dear Parents and Guardians of Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and new admits to PS 101,
You are now able to set up your child’s @nycstudents.netemail account. Your child will need this email to participate in the Remote Learning which all students will have at some point during the week. Please set this up before September 13, 2021.
The Department of Education would like all students city wide to have the same email domain. This will allow your child to take their login credentials with them when they graduate and use them for High School. NYCStudents.net
Single Sign On!
One other benefit to this is that students will only need one login to access all of their remote learning applications. So no more worrying about having to remember separate logins for things like Pearson Math, Google Classroom, etc. Once your child logs in with their @nycstudents.net account they will be able to access these applications right from their dashboard.
To get started you will need to retrieve your NYC DOE Student Account. It’s easy! Follow the instructions below.
Please be advised of our final pick-up of your child’s academic materials for the 2020-2021 school year. This pick-up will include your child’s Stepping-Up certificate, a special end of year gift and student work portfolios (if applicable).
On Thursday, June 24th, please arrange to report to the PS 101 schoolyard between 9am-10am to pick-up your child’s packet.
As a reminder, it is essential for you to follow health and safety restrictions on school grounds. Teachers will have prepared labeled baggies for your child. We have set-up a specific time slot for learning material(s) pick-up in our schoolyard with the following safety guidelines:
*You must enter through the 24th Avenue gated entrance. *No persons will be permitted in the schoolyard without facemasks. *We ask for ONE member of each family to pick-up the packets. *It is necessary for all visitors to follow social distancing requirements with 6 feet apart when coming to and from the PS 101 schoolyard. *We will have staff members set up with tables in the schoolyard for a smooth distribution of materials.
We ask for your cooperation in advance to assist us and following instructions.
Hard work always pays off! To better prepare you and your child for the giant leap to Intermediate School, summer is an ideal time for your child to practice what they’ve learned and challenge them for 6th grade learning tasks. Principal Bender and the IS 281 ELA department have prepared English Language Arts assignments for completion. The attached summer assignments have just been released for students preparing to attend for IS 281 in September, 2021, which can also be found on the IS 281 website: IS 281.com.
If you have any questions, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at (347) 563-4680 or via email at MLloyd2@schools.nyc.gov. You may also contact IS 281 school staff directly at (718) 996-6706.
