Soft Lockdown Drill

Please be advised we entered into a soft  lockdown DRILL today.

Please note the MAJOR difference this year in these drills is under normal circumstances, students move into a corner of the room where they cannot be seen from the window, however, due to Social Distancing guidelines, we are following all procedures EXCEPT students will remain at their desks to ensure safe distancing.

As per DOE requirements, we are to do 4 drills per year. I am happy to inform you that everything was very swift and everyone (staff and students) responded perfectly according to our protocol. Thank you to the staff and students.

REMINDER – NYC Schools Account – Activation Process for Families – Free Homework Pass

Dear PS 101 Families: 


GET READY, GET SET, GO!! 

If you haven’t signed up for your child’s NYC Schools Account–the time is NOW and your child will be rewarded with a FREE FULL-DAY NO HOMEWORK PASS! Full class completion will earn a fun activity period with their class! Although many families have completed this task, we have numerous families that still have created accounts.

Please note, the NYC Schools Account differs from My Schools Account. 

Ms. Margaret will monitor our school list and when you have completed creating your account, she will email directly your child’s teacher with a FREE FULL-DAY NO HOMEWORK PASS. Your child can use whenever they are ready!

** Classes who have 100% completion will be awarded with the following reward: FUN ACTIVITY PERIOD with their class!

Have you created a NYC Schools Account for your child? You will find your NYC Student Account Information and a brief step-by-step video to watch. It is necessary for those families who have not yet created an account for their child to do so immediately. This instructional video models the NYCSA set-up process.

What is a NYC Schools Account?  

NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) is a DOE application that lets you access important information about your child on any device. The website is accessible in nine languages. 

Why is the NYC Schools Account important?  

The NYC Schools Account allows you to view your child’s grades, report cards, attendance history, test scores, transportation information, IEP information, submit COVID consent forms, track your child’s progress to graduation, and more to come! 

How can you get started and sign-up for your NYC Schools Account!

It’s Easy … simply follow the steps in the Parent NYCSA Set-up Video.

You will need a special Creation Code tailored for your child to activate your account and then you will be able to set up your own password. These Creation Codes are given to you by our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd. Any questions please contact our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at 1-347-563-4680 or via email at MLloyd2@schools.nyc.gov.

Additionally, a NYC Schools Account will be the only way to apply and vote in the 2021 Education Council Elections (CEC). Stay tuned for more information regarding the (CEC) elections. Always share your voice and make your vote count!
