Principal's Remote Learning Letter to Parents and Guardians

March 19, 2020


Hello Families, 


During this challenging time, I hope that you and your families are well. 

During this week, our full TMA team has been preparing to launch into what is called remote learning. This means that students will be able to access work materials that are assigned by their teachers online using Google Classrooms or a TechRow Online Learning.  TMA scholars will be able to access the assignments and activities by using their TMA email accounts. 


We will fully launch Remote Learning on Monday, March 23rd. 


We recognize that this shift to remote learning may create some difficulties if scholars do not have access to electronic devices or internet in order to access their work. 

TMA will be loaning devices to families based on need for the duration of the time that the NYCDOE uses the remote learning and school buildings are closed. 


To request the loan of a device, please complete this TMA Device Request Survey using this link:  Please complete this survey by no later than Friday, March 20th. 


Families can also directly email our assistant principals Dr. Davis, Mr. Dunning or Mr. Fareed using their TMA email accounts to request the loan of a device:


Dr. Davis:

Mr. Dunning:

Mr. Fareed:


We will be sharing more information via physical letter that will be sent out on Thursday, March 19th and all updates will be shared through our website at


Thank You, 


Major Fareed
