Notice to Parents - Coronavirus

Recently, a novel (new) coronavirus was detected in hundreds of people worldwide. A "novel coronavirus" is a strain that has not been previously found in humans. This novel coronavirus can lead to fever, cough and shortness of breath.

There are currently zero diagnoses in New York City, and the risk to New Yorkers is low. The City is monitoring the outbreak closely and working with our agency partners and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Right now, everyone should go about their daily lives, but practice the same precautions you do during cold and flu season: cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when sneezing or coughing; wash your hands with soap and water often; and stay home if you are feeling sick. If you were recently in China, and have a fever and either a cough or shortness-of-breath, call your healthcare provider.

Per the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) there is no need to cancel field trips.

Breakfast Procedures

 Students who wish to join us for breakfast should enter the building through the main entrance no earlier than 7:20 AM or later than 7:40 AM.  A free and nutritious breakfast is available to all students from 7:20- 7:50 AM each school day.  After breakfast children will be escorted to their line-up area by our staff. Students who arrive after 7:40 AM must go to the schoolyard for line-up and have the option to have a "grab and go" breakfast to bring to their classroom.  

This year our school will continue to participate in an innovative program called Breakfast in the Classroom (BIC). BIC is a free breakfast program that aims to alleviate hunger and ensure all students are ready to learn each day. 

 Our school selected the "Grab and Go" delivery option.  Children arriving after 7:45 AM may take their "grab and go" breakfasts up to their classrooms from a station at one of the entrances.  Once in the classroom, these students eat at their desk while the teacher takes morning attendance, teaches a short lesson and/or reads announcements. 

Lunch is FREE for all NYC Students

Playworks- A Rocking Recess!

Our Indoor "Rockin' Recess" is such a great success! We would, however,  like to give the children the opportunity to play outside whenever it is possible.  Please remind students to come dressed appropriately (cover exposed skin, wear warm clothing and use multiple layers to maintain warmth) for outdoor play daily.  The decision to stay indoors or outdoors will be made on a day to day basis. 

Outdoor Lineup and Recess

In keeping with the recommendations from the NYC Dept. of Health, the Deptartment of Education has set forth the following guideline:

Children benefit from vigorous exercise and should be given the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Unless it is snowing, or there is ice on the playground, or the wind-chill factor is below zero degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius), temperature alone should not preclude outdoor play. You are encouraged to work with your staff to maintain outdoor play periods, and should take precautions to keep students warm and ensure that they are appropriately dressed on very cold days. When outdoors, please ensure that your students and staff cover exposed skin, wear warm clothing, and use multiple layers to maintain warmth.

Please be sure to dress your child for outdoor line up and recess each day.  

On days when the weather does not permit outdoor lineup, students should enter the school through one of the schoolyard entrances.
