Safety agents will ask for both the child and parent to check their temperature before approaching the safety agent desk.
- Parents/guardians must complete a health survey with the safety agent.
- The parent or designee will sign the student into the late book.
Students will then be escorted to their classrooms by school personnel.
3K- Second Grade
Students will be dismissed outside on 34th Avenue. Parents/guardians should wait outside behind the yellow tape on 34th Avenue. Students line up on their designated line spots (example: Class 202 Ms. Natsis). Please look for your child’s class. Students that are not picked up by 2:45 pm will remain in the front lobby with school personnel. After 2:50 PM parents/guardians must sign in at the security desk, and will be asked to sign the late pick up book.
When the weather is too cold or inclement we will have a staff member at each outside gate. Kindly show them your child’s daily health screening. The child will enter the building through their designated exit A or B, and be directed to go to the cafeteria. We will have signs posted where they should stand. Their classroom teacher will be waiting for them. Dismissal will be outside so please be on time.
Rainy Days: Please be sure your child has a raincoat or an umbrella. Dismissal is outdoors regardless of the inclement weather.
Snow Days : In the case of inclement weather, the Mayor will announce whether schools will be open or not and whether schools will be working remotely. The Department of Education will post this information on their website home page www.schools.nyc.gov, and on the following Twitter handle: @nycmayorsoffice.
Window of Security
For security reasons, no parents will be allowed into the building prior to 8:40 am. Once doors close at 8:30 AM and the school day begins, to visit the Main Office, please enter the building through the Main Entrance on 34th Avenue after 8:40 AM. All visitors MUST SHOW PROOF OF VACCINATION!
Again, for security reasons, no parents will be allowed into the building before 2:35 PM. If you need to pick up your child earlier than regular dismissal time, please send a written note to your child's classroom teacher or call the Main Office. We ask that you pick up your child before 2:30 PM so that you do not disrupt regular dismissal procedures. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
