Arrival: The school day begins at 8:20 AM
Please do your best to have your child arrive at school on time. Students who choose to eat the school-provided breakfast should arrive by 8:00 A.M. to ensure enough time to eat. Additionally, when a child is late to school, it disrupts the entire class, and unfortunately, they miss valuable classroom instruction.
Dismissal: The school day ends at 2:40 PM. Pick up is on the corner of 26th and 9th.
For their safety, students will only be dismissed to parents, guardians, and/or individuals listed on the their "blue card." If there are changes in dismissal that day, please send a note with your child, call the school, or contact us on Class Dojo as soon as possible.
Tuesday: NDI ***please make sure your child is dressed comfortably
Physical Education ***please make sure your child has a comfortable pair of sneakers and a water bottle***
Recess and Lunch: 5th period daily
As per the Chancellor's Regulation, students play outside in most weather. Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for recess, and accordingly, for that day's forecast (layers and outerwear will make for an enjoyable and safe time.)
- As you know, sugar can have a negative impact on children's behavior and ability to focus. Increased blood sugar levels are often followed by energy "crash" shortly thereafter.
- To support your children's physical and mental health throughout the school day, please pack healthy snacks only. Please do not pack snacks like candy, gummies, fruit roll-ups, cookies, donuts and other sugary treats.

Homework will be assigned weekly, handed out every Monday. There will always be required Independent reading for at least 30 minutes each night. Please check their Take Home Folder daily for important notices being sent home. Homework will be checked at the end of each week. If a child is going to be absent for an extended period of time, please notify us in advance so we may put together a folder for he/she to take home to complete.
Get free homework assistance by calling the UFT's Dial-A-Teacher hotline at 212-777-3380.
The hotline is open from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday when school is in session.
