PS 85 Families,


NYC school buildings are closed until April 20th and learning will be done remotely starting March 23 using Google Classroom. Teachers have been outreaching to families to ensure we have the best contact information and to assess what technology is needed at home. If you have not spoken to your child's teacher, please call the school at 718-584-5275 or email Ms. Krenn at akrenn@ps85bronx.org. Make sure to include your current email address and phone number.

In the mean time, please make sure that students are reading every day, completing work packets, and logging in to iReady or myON on a daily basis. Breakfast and lunch will be available from 7:30 to 1:30 Monday through Friday at the main entrance.

We will continue to update our school website as additional information becomes available.
