2023 NYC School Survey For Families- Deadline March 31

Dear Eagle Families,

NYC DOE families are asked to complete a NYC School Survey each year. The survey gives our school leaders a better understanding of what members of the P.S. 23 school community think about our wonderful school. The information collected by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about what is working well & how to make the school an even better place to learn. Access your survey by clicking here.

Families: Please enter a lowercase f followed by your student's OSIS number-- for example, f123456789-- or the access code provided to you by our school. Please get in touch with Parent Coordinator Sharon Fink if you need support.

It is always better for our school when more families participate, so please help us meet our goal and fill out the survey. We appreciate your cooperation!

Currently, 29% of the P.S. 23 Families have responded.

We can do better!

NYC DOE Attendance Policy

More time in school means your child will get the social-emotional and academic support they need to thrive, learn, and be happy. Your child may miss school for illness & emergencies, but we want to see every student in school every day.

🏫 Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow πŸŽ’


We sent home informational letters to families about their child's attendance. If the NYC DOE has flagged your child's attendance for this school year as being Chronically Absent, Potentially Chronically Absent, or At Risk for being Chronically Absent, you should have received a letter informing you of their absences. The letter is solely informational and with the hopes that our students attend school regularly when they are in good health.

If your child has COVID-19 and completes work during their 5-day quarantine, we can code them in a special way where the absence does not contribute to being "chronically absent". Again, work has to be completed and submitted to their teacher for this to apply. Please message your child's teacher and notify the attendance aide by choosing option 4 when calling the school.

We understand that many illnesses were going around, and many of our students were legitimately ill. However, we want everyone to be aware of your child's attendance record, which can be found by logging into your NYC SCHOOLS ACCOUNT , and ask that you be conscientious when arriving late to school (past 8:15 AM), planning vacations, and keeping your children out for reasons other than illness. Elementary School Attendance can help predict a student's performance in high school and whether they stay in school as they age. We want to maximize your child's school time and minimize missed instructional time. There are many things to learn while in school, including academics, learning with and from peers & teachers, as well as interacting and socializing with other students.

It is our hope that you and your family have a wonderful mid-winter recess and time is spent smiling, laughing, and loving one another! Happy Valentine' Day and President's Week.
