Questions and Answers
What is the uniform policy?
Our uniform policy has changed. You can wear jeans now.
The policy basically requires students to wear a school shirt (either a uniform shirt or official school club/sports/event shirt).
Click here for the online uniform store.
What if I don't have a uniform yet? Don't fret. Just wear a blue or gray shirt (school colors) and let Mr. T know at email@example.com.
Students must wear a face mask daily. Please see the handbook for guidelines.
How will I know what to do when I am learning at home?
All of our digital schedules with times and Zoom links will be organized in one central place.
When you come to this home page on September 16 at 9:00 AM, you will be able to access The Switchboard. You will follow the directions. Teachers will demonstrate how to use this home page on September 16.
So I will have 2 separate logins?
You will use your @ms442.org email to access all things 442, including Gmail, Drive, Google Classroom, and Mastery Connect.
You will use your DOE @nycstudents.net account to sign into Zoom.
Please write down your login info for both accounts! Label the first "442 Business" and the second "Zoom."
Will students use lockers?
Students will not have access to lockers when we begin this fall. Please review your student's schedule the night before school to ensure they have only the necessary items with them for the day.
