Learning Bridges Family Interest Form (Childcare)
For students in grades 3-K–8, who are participating in blended learning, Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free childcare options on the days when students are scheduled for remote-learning instruction, for the same time period as the remote-learning instructional period. The Learning Bridges programs will:
Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners;
Provide opportunities for children to connect to remote-learning activities;
Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities;
Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools.
Families can express interest in the Learning Bridges program by completing the Learning Bridges family interest form.
Please note that students who reside in shelters or hotels will be prioritized for the program.

Remote Learning Devices
If you think you may be in need of a device for remote learning, you can use the DOE Remote Learning Device request form to notify schools of technology needs. Devices will be distributed based on high-need priorities such as vulnerable populations (e.g., students in temporary housing (STH), foster care), and students who lack internet connectivity at home.
P.S. 41 Q does not have a supply of devices to lend out, so it is important that if you are in a high need that you fill out this survey.
In order to help schools to identify families still in need of devices, the DOE is asking that parents fill out the Remote Learning Device request form (though the form will remain open throughout the year for parents to use to notify schools of new device and internet-connectivity needs).
Families who have DOE iPads should plug in, turn on, and reconnect DOE-loaned devices, as explained on the Getting Started with Your iPad InfoHub page.
