February 1st & 2nd, 2023 - P.S. 211’s Technology Device Inventory


Dear families and staff of P.S. 211 Elm Tree Elementary School,


Please be advised that the New York City Department of Education will be performing a comprehensive inventory of all devices loaned to students. To achieve this, we’re asking THAT ALL DEVICES MUST BE BROUGHT IN 2/1/23-2/2/23. THESE WILL REMAIN IN THE SCHOOL ON THESE DAYS, to be added to the device inventory. Devices include desktops, laptops, and tablets.


How This Impacts Families

Throughout the pandemic, the DOE has loaned devices to our students; these devices must be brought to school with them on a daily basis. The devices will be verified they are in good functioning condition and returned to the student to be brought back home for continued learning.



What Parents Need to Do:

Make sure that your child brings their DOE device with them to school from 2/1/2023 - 2/2/23. They do not need to bring the accessories (for example, the power cord or keyboard). Please have your child bring the device to school even if it is broken or not in good condition. The DOE will look into replacing it under warranty.



What Will Happen to the Device:

A DOE vendor will scan the barcode on the device and return it to your child. This should only take a few seconds and the device will be returned to your child the same day. The device will have a sticker on it, indicating it has been scanned. Please do not remove this sticker. 



If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our school’s technology team (Jennifer Molina, Martin Polomsky, Charles Hauber).


Have a wonderful rest of your week!
