The New LIFE School is continuing to adapt and add the best possible resources to provide the highest quality instruction during this period of remote learning. We now have Office 365 accounts for your student, SchoolMessenger to contact you by phone email and text, and the PowerSchool Student Information System.
Office365 For Students
Every New LIFE School Student gets a free Office 365 for Education account.
With this account, your student can use the web-based versions of Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Outlook.
This is particularly critical as part of our NY on Pause Instruction from home due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our Teachers will be using these accounts to have online instruction with your student using secure Microsoft Teams live online learning sessions. Your student will be getting their assignments inside of Microsoft Teams, and they will be able to submit their assignments and get their grades back.
SchoolMessenger for our New LIFE Families
This year we have implemented SchoolMessenger for our New Life School Families.
We will be using this tool to call you, send you email, and text messages with important information for you and your students. We will be using the contact information in PowerSchool to send these messages out.
We want you to know that we have these resources to keep you informed during the New York on Pause Learning at Home due to COVID-19 period.
Coming Soon! The PowerSchool Parent Portal
Parents/guardians will be receiving letters via postal mail and email with personalized instructions about how to access their children’s attendance records and current grades in the New Life School PowerSchool Parent Portal. Parents will receive a separate letter for each child.
This portal will allow you to access your students attendance, grades and more.
