In the event we go fully remote

All Google Classroom instruction will begin at 8:30 am and will end at 2:00 pm.

Each teacher will post their schedule for the day and the Zoom link on their Google Classroom page.

If your child has art, PE, music, Brain Power, or technology, they will have that subject at their normal time, depending upon the day of the week. For example, if your child has PE on Monday period 2, they will have PE at 9:00 am. The PE teacher will post a link in your child’s Google Classroom and on their page.

To access Google Classroom and other digital resources:

1) Sign in to: https://teachhub.schools.nyc/

2) Enter your child’s user name, NOT the full email address.

3) Enter your child’s password

If you do not know your child’s password, please fill out this digital form:


Once you log in you need to go to the K-12 tab and look for the Google Classroom App.

Choose Google Classroom and accept the invitation to join for each digital class.

If your child does not have a device, you can request one by completing this link: https://tinyurl.com/2hpy6xk3

If you require any assistance, please contact Ms. Flores at OFlores3@schools.nyc.gov and she will connect you with support.
