A Message from the Principals

Dear Neighborhood Charter School Families,

We hope you are well and that you and your family are staying safe. It is with great excitement that we launch Neighborhood Charter School’s Remote Learning Platform. Our goal is to ensure the continuation of scholar learning, engagement, and community. We aim to keep students on track so that when they return to school, they will be ready for the next phase in their learning.

The NCS team worked incredibly hard in building this platform for our families and scholars. Throughout the next several weeks, we will request family feedback and work to continually improve the platform.

To learn about using this remote learning platform, please watch the videos at the bottom of the homepage where our Bronx Dean of Students, Ms. Romina Cepeda, will guide you through the process of accessing and using this website. We have provided videos both in English and Spanish.

Please see below for some key information regarding using the platform to ensure that you and your scholar can access assignments and resources:

  • For elementary school (Grades K-4), teachers will post assignments every Friday for the following week. For example, on Friday, March 27th at 5:00PM, teachers will post lessons and assignments for the week of March 30th. Parents and scholars should check the remote learning platform every Sunday/Monday so you and your family may plan accordingly for the week.

  • For Middle School (Grades 5-8), all teachers will submit the assignments with corresponding links for the week to our Middle School Link Up. These assignments will also be sent directly to your scholar’s school email address by 4pm Sunday evening. Parents and scholars should check our Middle School webpage as well as their scholar’s email weekly to ensure that they have access to all of their assignments for each subject.

  • If you have any questions, your first point of contact is to reach out to your child’s teachers. You can access contact information in the classroom pages section for grades K-4 and here for Middle School.

  • NCS is continually building out our resources and support. You can find resources on speech services, counseling, culture, sample schedules, and more on the remote learning platform. We encourage you to orient yourself to all the resources provided as we work to support our entire community of scholars.

  • If you have technical issues with a device that was provided by Neighborhood Charter Schools, please email

Thank you to the NCS community for your patience and flexibility. We hope you and your families stay safe and healthy during this time period.

Best Regards,

Michael Renda: K-4 NCS: Harlem Principal
