Important information

MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT:


With the forecast for NYC having a huge amount of snow and alternate side parking suspended for Monday, I am concerned about staff parking.

Our contractor will plow the yard this weekend, making additional parking available.
Staff may park in the yard until further notice, beginning Monday, WITH THE FOLLOWING RULES:
1. Security guards will direct staff where to park (assigned spots for the Network staff must remain for them)
2. Lanes MUST remain open for busses and emergency vehicles.
3. Cars may not be moved in the afternoon until the busses exit the yard at approximately 4:00 - NO EXCEPTIONS.
4. At all times, staff must yield to the busses.


Safety Protocols:

  • ID badges must be worn in the building at all times
  • doors should be locked and keep your room keys on you at all times
  • Please review the safety procedures and look over your evacuation plan


Tardiness:

  • Please be on time picking up your students from breakfast (8:20) & Lunch (12:30). ALL BUS STUDENTS MUST BE DISMISSED NO LATE THAN (3:40). K-4 drops off at the cafeteria and picks up in the yard; 5-8 drops off in the yard and picks up from the cafeteria.
  • Please make sure that all teachers are receiving their full prep period (all teachers need to be on time leaving their classrooms for their prep and return on time. Please remember that failure to do so affects your colleagues).


Professional Development:

  • At the end of every workshop please complete the Workshop Questionnaire Form
  • Three weeks after each PD, please fill out the Follow Up Workshop Questionnaire Form
  • Fill out the inter-visitation form while at your host school

Senior Ambassador Schedule

Please inform the office if Senior Ambassadors do not fulfill their duties on the day they are assigned to your class.

Specials Schedule C (December 22nd - February 5th)

Please make sure to follow the gym, library & computer lab schedule! Great news!!! Mr. Shaw & Ms. Malota will be holding gym with your students on Wednesdays. Please meet them in the gym during your allotted time!
