Dear Parents and Guardians,

The past days have been very different (to say the least!), as we weather some major changes to our daily routines. I hope everyone is staying safe and calm, while finding a little joy in the midst of it all. Teachers are actively preparing for the resumption of school, albeit of the online variety.

A few things to note below…

School Food
FREE meals for all kids under 18!
View the list here to find the nearest pick up location. Hrs: 7:30 a.m. – 1:30.p.m.
Kids may pick up from any participating school location on the list. Check for the closest open school near you. All kids can pick up 3 bags each day. If you need help finding additional food resources in the community, please reach out to James.

Devices and Wifi Connections.
If you or some you know is still in need of a device to connect your child to Google Classroom, fill out this form for a device, on loan, from the Department of Education:

https://coronavirus.schools.nyc/RemoteLearningDevices
Your student ID is required, reach out to teachers or me if you need it.
EVCS is located under The East Village Community School.

If you are not set up yet, don’t worry, we will take it one day at a time…
