School Mission Statement
We will be good students, good friends and good people.
Remote Learning Updates
As we head into winter, it’s likely we will have inclement weather that in an ordinary year would cause all schools to close for teaching and learning. This year, if a snowstorm or other weather demands that school buildings close, all schools will still conduct remote learning on that day. All students will be expected to log on and engage with their work from home as they do on other days when they learn remotely.
We have additional Parent Resources, click on the button below to see the Parent Resources page.
If you require technical support, please call the DOE IT Help Desk at: 718-935-5100, press 5 to get assistance.
School spirit days
Happy 100 years PS 185!

New Year...New Beginnings
Happy New Year! As we say goodbye to 2020 and start a new year, let’s think about new goals we have for ourselves. A tradition in America, is to make new year's resolutions. A resolution is when you decide to make a positive change in your life. Check out our FlipGrid
Please join Council Member Justin Brannan, Community Board 10, and NYC Parks to share and discuss your ideas for the future of Russell Pederson Playground. This event will be held virtually.
Breakfast and Lunch pickup from the school for Remote Students is from

Fight the Flu this year!
This year, flu vaccination is more important than ever because the flu and the virus that causes COVID-19 may both be spreading. Flu vaccination will help reduce the spread of flu and help ease the burden on our health care system. Please see the attached flyer for additional information.
ipad loan updates
By August 14, families who borrowed iPads from the DOE will receive an email or text about preparing DOE-loaned devices for the first day of school. Families will be asked to take action to ensure that their child’s iPad is updated and ready to be used for remote learning, including:
Turning on the iPad;
Reconnecting to internet;
Making sure content-filtering in enabled (Zscaler);
Signing in to the Learn at Home app; and
Using the iPad as a Wi-Fi-enabled, personal hotspot.
