Good morning 229 parents,


As a followup to Mr. Berger's email, if you have not created your NYC Schools Account please email me and I will send you the creation code. If you have forgotten your password, I can reset the password. If you have a new email address and you need to change it, I can also assist you with that.


My email is:


It is very important that each family creates an account.

Stay strong, together we will overcome this tragedy.  PS229 Strong
