November is American Diabetes Month®

We’re taking The Big Step Up against diabetes. Come join us! Take your health into your own hands through awareness, detection, management, and learning to thrive despite your diabetes.

Diabetes is a constant battle, not only for those diagnosed, but for their loved ones, caregivers, and health care providers. With the guilt, the blisters, the numbers, the sleepless nights—it’s no wonder it seems impossible that there are good days ahead.

Now is the time to take charge. Your best days are still to come!

Resources for our family

As family we understand how hard it can be day to day. We felt it important to include different resources we believe can be of help, not only do we understand the need exist we all have needed these services from time to time. Family protects its family!

The Healing Collective

The Healing Collective Team is comprised of licensed clinicians from Da Hill Community.

The team has collectively 50 years of experience supporting, educating, and guiding individuals to explore tools to aid in living rich and fulfilling lives. It is our hope that those who receive supports can then positively impact their families, neighborhoods, and the broader community at large.

The Healing Collective will be working to provide valuable information in tandem with Da Hill Foundation. It is our hope that the skills that we have acquired as practitioners will be useful and beneficial.

Light, Love & Peace,

School Year 2020-2021 In New York City

This fall, your child’s school plans to offer blended learning, a mix of in-person days at school and remote-learning days at home. The default for all students is to participate in their schools’ blended learning schedules.

  • Learn more about blended learning and the 2020-2021 school year on our Return to School 2020 web pages.
  • Your school will keep you informed of its specific learning model and your child’s schedule. If you have questions about your school’s model or schedule, please reach out to the school directly.

Want to Choose Fully Remote Learning? Fill Out This Form.

At any time of year, for any reason, you can choose fully remote learning for your child. This means they would learn 100% remotely (all online, from home). Remote learning includes live interaction with teachers every day, and every class includes live instruction.

  • To choose fully remote learning for your child, fill out and submit this form.
  • If you have difficulties completing this form online, call 311.

Changing Preferences

If you choose fully remote learning for your child, you will have the option to change back to blended learning at a few specific times during the school year, beginning in November 2020.

Please note: This form does not apply to charter schools. If your child attends a charter school, please reach out to the school directly to discuss remote learning options.
