Covid-19 testing consent:
Every school will randomly test a sample of unvaccinated students, who have submitted consent for testing, at a threshold of ten percent of unvaccinated students per school population on a biweekly basis. (Pre-K and Kindergarten students are excluded). Please note that students must submit new consent for the 2021-22 school year either by returning a new COVID-19 testing consent form(Open external link) or by consenting via their NYC Schools Account to participate in the testing program in 2021-22. If consent exists from school year 20-21, that consent will be used until it expires on September 30. Forms and translations can be found on the family-facing site(Open external link).
For morning arrival:
For a safe and smooth transition on the first day of school, we ask that ONLY the children walk up the "Paw Path", located on Slosson Avenue, to enter the building. Stop and Drop will be available on Slosson Avenue for parents/guardians, beginning at 7:45am.
To add some excitement to our first day of school, we are asking students to wear shirts in a color specific to their grade level. This will not only make it easier to identify other students in the grade but will also add to the fun of the first day!
Please have your child come to school on September 13th in the following:
Pre-K and K: Tie Dye shirt
1st Grade: Yellow shirt
2nd grade: Blue shirt
3rd grade: Purple shirt
4th grade: Orange shirt
5th Grade: Green shirt
Kindergarten & Pre-K morning arrival:
Kindergarten students will report at 8:15am and meet their teachers in the schoolyard. Pre-K 3 and Pre-k 4 students have a separate drop off on Victory Boulevard and come through the side entrance.
