Updates, Reminder and New Information for the week of January 18, 2020

Picture of the word January

Important Reminder: School is closed on Monday, January 18th in observance of Martin Luther King day.

 In-Person Families – Main Building

We cannot stress enough the importance of following the schools protocols at arrival and dismissal. We have many more families arriving and dismissing at the school. These protocols are in place for the safety of the children and families coming to our school and are not optional. Please be reminded there is absolutely NO parking in front or around the school building during arrival and dismissal. Wearing a mask and social distancing is not optional. It is mandatory.  Our goal is to keep the school building open and the children in school. To do that we all must work together and follow the protocols set for in-person learning. Thank you.

 5th Grade Families

To assist families with the middle school process we will be having a Zoom meeting on Wednesday, January 20th at 9:00 a.m. and again at 7:00 p.m. for families who are unable to attend the earlier session. We will be presenting to you the most up to date information we received from the NYC Department of Education, Office of Student Enrollment, on the Middle School Application Process.  We are asking families to please follow this link to register for the meeting and to send us your questions before the meeting. This meeting is only for current 5th grade families. This year is different. We do not know what will change for the rest. A link will be sent out to 5th grade families on Tuesday, January 19th.

All Families

Dr. Caraisco, has been rescheduled for, Friday, January 22nd at 9:30 a.m. We are asking families to please click School-wide Coffee and Conversation to register for the meeting and to send us your questions before the meeting.
