  • Important Update from the PTA....

    The Learning Preference Survey to choose either 100% Remote Learning or a Two Cohort Blended Learning Model is due TOMORROW. If you do not complete the survey, your child will automatically be put into blended learning. Here is the most up to date information as of today: the school day will be from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The day will be entirely instructional, with a working lunch. ALL children must wear a mask for the entire day. Blended learners will have two teachers. 100% remote learners will have one teacher.

  • Important Updates from the Administration!

    The approaching week is going to be an exciting week with graduations, dances, and parades. We look forward to celebrating our students, our parents, and our teachers for a successful school year. 

    Important Announcements:

    1) Please share your voice by completing the PS 31 survey. We know that there have been many surveys recently. The NYCDOE yearly survey that is usually due earlier in the year has been extended to June 26th. The NYCDOE put out a survey regarding the return to school in Fall 2020. Below is a survey just for PS 31. It is short but will give us the opportunity to receive your opinions of the different options possible for September.


    2)The DOE is asking schools to use a digital method of distributing report cards. The DOE uses a system called NYCSA (New York City Student Account) to share information with parents. NYCSA is a web-based application that lets you see your child's academic and biographic information on any computer, phone or tablet. The application is translated into nine languages for your easy access.You will need to have an active account in order to view your child's report card.

    In the past years you have received information in regards to how to Create a Student Account  (NYCSA). This information was sent to you at the beginning of the school year in September, and in the beginning of March. 

    You can access NYCSA online at this link: https://mystudent.nyc/

    Please  reach out to Ms. Vita at aechevarria@schools.nyc.gov if  you need help accessing this account. This will be the only way to access the report card. 

    3)  Attached are the supply lists for all grades next year. The fundraiser for the supplies hosted by the PTA is also attached. You can also find this information on your child's Google Classroom.

    4) Last Recess Link: Keep it Moving...

  • Weekly Updates from the Administration!

    Thank you for all the kind messages about our staff video for student/parent appreciation day. We miss all of our students and families and seeing them everyday. 

    Grading Reminder: Grades of either Meets Standards (MT) or Needs Improvement (N) will be given to all students in all subject areas including science, social studies, and physical education. These grades are based on assignments and assessments that are being given by your child's class teacher as well as their science/social/PE teacher. Please work with your child's teachers if you are having difficulty with the time frames or the assignments.  The teachers will work with you but are required to give the MT or N grades for the last report card grade. This has primarily been all remote. Live sessions are a great way for your child to interact with their friends and get support from their teachers. Live Sessions are available from the classroom, science/social studies teacher as well as Mr. Duggan at different time frames during the week. 


    We know how difficult this time has been for all of us especially our students.  In an effort to support all of the families, we have some exciting news of a brand new google classroom opening called: The Calming Corner.

     The staff at P.S. 31, including Ms. Sanchez (School Counselor), Ms. Shapiro (School Psychologist) and Ms. Vargas-Pagan (School Social Worker) will be sharing resources for parents and students to address the social emotional aspects of this crisis. Parents will be able to login to Google Classroom with the following code “x26j4dm”. We will be posting new information on different topics to address social emotional wellness and provide activities that care givers can complete with students at home. As always, our goal is to provide social emotional support to our school community. We look forward to engaging with students and families in the resource center!
