Message from the Principal

September 21, 2020​ (4:00 PM)

Dear MS 442 families,


We made it through the first day of remote learning, pat yourselves on the back, you deserve it!

I am aware it was not a smooth start for a few families and it required some collaboration and problem solving. This was expected and we will get there, together. 


Please use the MS442 website for resources such as the Switchboard to find the schedule your child will follow until October 1. There also videos to help ensure your child is logged into their Zoom accounts with their DOE student email account. Many frustrations can be alleviated by visiting the website.

The best part of the day was seeing and interacting with your children. It brings us joy and happiness to see them whether they are in front of us or on a screen. 


Thank you and be well,
