    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    2020 NYC School Survey Deadline Extension

    We know that due to the extraordinary circumstance of COVID19, children and school staff are both learning and teaching remotely; however, don’t miss your opportunity to provide your school with valuable feedback! Given the situation, we have extended the 2020 NYC School Survey deadline to Wednesday, April 8. In addition, we are making every effort to ensure that all parents/guardians, students, support staff and teachers are able to take the survey online.

    Please keep in mind that the code lookup tool is available for parent/guardians, students, support staff and teachers to retrieve their survey access codes. To use the code lookup tool, go to the online survey login page (accessed by clicking on the corresponding survey under “Take the survey NOW” section above). In addition, parent/ guardians, support staff and teachers can also call the survey hotline at 1-877-819-2363 to retrieve their access codes.

    • Do not receive meal assistance from other providers (incl. Meals on Wheels or God's Love We Deliver); and
