Getting a Device and Internet Access

We are committed to making sure that all students can successfully connect to online learning during their at-home learning days. If your student needs a laptop or tablet, fill out the Device Request Form to reserve your device. Borrowing a device is free! Students in grades 3K – 2 will receive tablets/ or laptops and students in grades 3-5 will receive laptops. 

Borrowed devices should be used for school purposes only and kept in a secure location.

If you do not have internet access at home, please contact our parent coordinator, Susan Taraby.

iPad and LAPTOP Care and Safety

Please exercise caution to protect your iPad or Laptop.

iPads should remain with the student they are assigned to in order to engage in remote learning. If there is a change in the student’s residence during remote learning the iPad should remain with the student, and should be used primarily inside the residence to prevent unnecessary damage. Damaged DOE iPads are protected by AppleCare. The DOE will work with families to get broken devices repaired using this coverage. For AppleCare support, please file a Technical Support Ticket or call the Help desk at 718-935-5100.

If you have borrowed a laptop/ or iPad from P.S. 63, if it gets damaged please contact the school, your child’s teacher, or our parent coordinator, Susan Taraby for further directions.

If you have borrowed a laptop/ or iPad, are moving, and your child will no longer be attending P.S. 63, please return the laptop or iPad to the school.
