Fun Stuff –

  1. So wanna see a movie? How about a drive in movie theater? Check out Tom’s Guide. He’s got a really good list of local and not so local drive in movie theaters located in NY.
  2. Want to picnic outside but afraid you might encounter a lot of crowds, check out the “The 10 best lesser-known spots for a lovely NYC picnicfrom Time Out In NY.

Resources –

  1. Telehealth Services​ – Mental health services are being offered remotely to support children and family during these difficult times. The School Mental Health Program is working with our community providers to offer Telehealth services which utilize health insurance, medicaid or offer a sliding scale for billing. Please reach out to each agency by phone or email for more information:
    Mental Health Telehealth Contacts for Covid-19
  2. Regional Enrichment Center (REC) Sites – Parents who are deemed essential employees can still apply for their children to attend a REC. The two sites in D 26 are PS/IS 266 and PS 376. Please do not share these locations widely, only with parents who are qualified to apply. Here is the link: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5518161/REC-Enrollment-Form
  3. If you are in need of a device for remote learning, please click Remote Learning Device to fill out the form. At the bottom, before you hit submit, click on the link “Student Device Loan Agreement.” Read the agreement and then go back to the form and check the box that states “I have read and agree to the Student Device Agreement.” Do not just check the box and submit the form. I think that may be why some families haven’t been processed.

That’s for all now. Have an amazing Memorial Day weekend!
