Updates, Reminders and New Information for the week of May 24, 2021

REMINDER, All Families – NYC School Survey

As of today only 76 surveys have been completed. We are asking families to please take a moment and fill out the survey. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. Reminder, you will need to fill out a survey for each child. Please follow the link below to take the survey. To access the survey, families will need their child’s 9-digit OSIS (Student Identification Number) number. When asked for the access number, enter a lowercase “f” followed by their child’s nine-digit OSIS number.This will bring you to the survey.
