Remote Learning Resources

It is important that our students stay engaged and as structured as possible during their time away from school. We are asking our parents to participate from home by using the resources available on this page to maintain our children’s academic and social emotional growth.

HIDEC is an advocate for hands-on authentic learning. However, at this time due to the lack of resources available to our families we are simplifying our approach to student learning in order for families to facilitate learning at home. We look forward to the students returning to school so that we may continue using the best developmental approaches to Early Childhood Learning.

NYC DOE is providing 3 free meals to all students
