March 18, 2020 - Message from Principal Williams
This is a message from Mrs. Williams, Principal of the The Marie Curie High School.
Tomorrow, Thursday March 19th is the last day for students to pick up a laptop if needed between the hours of 9:30 am - 2:30 pm only. Please note that we will need to obtain parental consent over the phone if a parent/ guardian is not present. Students must bring a bookbag/bag to be able to carry out the laptop as bags will not be provided.
Additionally, NYC Department of Education will provide iPads to NYC public students in need. Complete this survey by Friday, March 20 sharing your best contact information over the next few weeks as well as whether they have access to a smartphone, a laptop/tablet/computer, the internet, or none of the above. This information will be used to prioritize device distribution and inform you of pickup location if issued a device.
Este es un mensaje de la Señora Williams, Directora de la Escuela Secundaria Marie Curie.
Mañana, jueves 19 de marzo es el último día para que los estudiantes recojan una computadora portátil si es necesario entre las 9:30 am - 2:30 pm solamente. Tenga en cuenta que tendremos que obtener el consentimiento de los padres por teléfono si un padre / tutor no está presente. Los estudiantes deben llevar una bolsa para poder llevarse la computadora, ya que no se proporcionarán bolsas.
Adicinalmente, el Departamento de Educación de Nueva York proporcionará ipads a los estudiantes de las escuelas públicos de la ciudad de Nueva York que lo necesiten. Complete esta encuesta para este Viernes, 20 de marzo. Comparta la mejor forma de comunicarnos con usted en las próximas semanas, así como si tienen acceso a un teléfono inteligente, un ordenador portátil / tableta / computadora, Internet, o nada de lo anterior.

Remote Learning Device (iPad) Request Form (NYCDOE)
To keep students connected and able to participate in remote learning, the DOE is lending 300,000 internet-enabled iPads to students. Priority will be given to students most in need. All devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one device per student.
Families that want to request a device should fill out the Remote Learning Device Request.
Teachers and school staff should use this same form to request devices on behalf of their students.
The DOE is sending out iPads to the most vulnerable populations the week of March 23, 2020.
The week of March 23, 2020 the first shipment of 25,000 iPads will make their way to homes across New York City. Students in temporary housing will be the first to receive iPads. They will be delivered in bulk to shelters and foster care centers. A point person is on standby at these locations to receive the shipments and distribute the iPads. We are working with:
- Department of Homeless Services
- Human Resources Administration
- Department of Youth and Community Development
These agencies are helping to reach children in temporary housing, in youth or emergency shelters, and children in foster care so that the students will receive a web enabled iPad delivered to their doorstep through FedEx.
Individual deliveries will be made to all other recipients.
The DOE is contracting with FedEx to deliver iPads directly to students. Your iPad will be shipped to the address you entered on the request form.
If you have already filled out the request form, you will receive a text message or email making sure you have completed the Student Device Loan Agreement. Please complete the agreement when you request a device as your device cannot be shipped unless you have signed the agreement.
Please make sure someone is at the address to accept the delivery, as FedEx will not leave packages unattended. Also, FedEx carriers will adhere to social distancing rules.
To help students stay connected during emergencies, the DOE is lending internet-enabled iPads to support remote learning for students. If you would like to request a device for a NYC student in your family, please fill out the Request form. The DOE will use the contact information you provide to get in touch with you to discuss when and where you can pick up a device. Priority will be given to students most in need, and all devices are granted on a temporary basis and will need to be returned.
