Late Arrival Procedures
Please arrive at school on time each day. Kindergarten through 5th Grade students are marked late if they are not in their classrooms by 8:30 AM.
- Students who arrive late are to enter through the main entrance escorted by a parent or designee to the front safety desk.
- The parent or designee will sign the student into the late book.
Students will then be escorted to their classrooms by school personnel.
All Grades: Students will be dismissed from their classrooms by their teacher to their morning line up spots at 2:40 pm . Parents will wait on 34th Avenue. Students staying for after school programs will be taken to their after school program classroom by 2:40 pm. Students that are not picked up by 2:40 pm will remain in the Main Entrance. After 2:40 PM parents/guardians must sign at the security desk, to pick their child.
When the weather is too cold or inclement we will have a staff member at each outside gate. 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.
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 ID!
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.
