Important Guidelines for Use of Student Devices- Please review with your children

Guidelines for Use of Student Devices

All devices issued to students are to be used to access remote learning and other educational uses.  Students are expected to follow the guidelines below and take any additional common sense precautions to protect the device.  Students are responsible for taking care of the device.  The policies outlined below are intended to cover all available technologies. 

Parents and Caregivers, please ensure that your children adhere to the following:

Care and Maintenance

  • The student/family is responsible for the daily care and maintenance of the laptop.  Any damage or theft must be reported to the NYCDOE within one school day.
  • Keep the laptop in a safe place when not in use.
  • Students/families should report problems to 718-935-5100 or 311.  Do not attempt to remove, add, or change the physical structure of the device, including keys, memory, battery, screen, charger, ID labels, etc.
  • Carry the device carefully at all times.  Do not store items on top of the device.

Usage Guidelines

In general, all students are expected to use good judgment and common sense; be safe, appropriate, careful and kind online; not attempt to get around technological protection measures; ask an adult if they need help.

  • Users should recognize that communicating over the Internet brings anonymity and associated risks, and should carefully safeguard the personal information of themselves and others.
  • Users should never agree to meet someone they meet online in real life without parental permission.  If students see a message, comment, image, or anything else online that makes them concerned for their personal safety, they should bring it to the attention of an adult immediately.

Limitation of Liability

The NYCDOE will not be responsible for damage or harm to persons, files, data, or hardware.  Devices employ filtering and other safety and security mechanisms, but there is no guarantee as to their effectiveness.  The NYCDOE will not be responsible, financially or otherwise, for unauthorized transactions conducted over the school network.

The materials on the Learn at Home pages are designed to provide supplementary learning resources to students in the event that students may need to be home from school. We encourage you to use this time to continue your student’s learning while they are at home. To help students engage in educational material, we have shared the resources below for students in all grades. These materials do not replace what your child has been learning at school, but during this unusual time it is important that students continue to read, write, do social studies and science activities, and work on math problems.

The materials on the grade specific pages below include:

  • Suggested daily study schedules
  • Guides and materials for instructional activities
  • Recommended educational television shows
  • Links to a variety of books, magazines, and websites on a wide range of topics that appeal to children at all ages

Amplify Science (K-5)

Digital access for grades K–5

Amplify has created a temporary family login for access to the digital Student Books (grades K–5) and simulations (grades 3–5) for home use. This access will enable guardians to read to their students and/or set their students up for independent exploration. 

  • To access digital Student Books and simulations, guardians will navigate to apps.learning.amplify.com/elementary
    • Select “Log in with Amplify” and enter the username and password:
    • Select the unit the class is currently working on at school
      • Once logged in to the particular unit, the guardian will find icons for all of the student books in the unit (in English and Spanish), as well as the digital apps associated with the unit if it is in grades 2–5.

Dear Families,


RoomRecess.com is dedicated to providing children with free learning games that are fun. Their online games reinforce important skills that are vital to elementary students and their educational process. RoomRecess.com was developed entirely by an elementary school teacher with the goal of reinforcing fundamental learning concepts in math, reading, spelling, language arts, typing, and problem solving. Because their learning games are free, students do not have to sign up or hold an account with us. Children can simply load up an activity and have fun learning online while they play! This is a wonderful site to have your children go on to continue to practice their studies.

Please let us know if there is anything you need or how we can help you during this time.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns that you have.
