School Lunch

Our school offers free breakfast, lunch and after school meals to all students during the school year. Although school lunch is now free for all students, parents/guardians are still required to fill out a school lunch form at the beginning of each school year. This may be done in paper format or online.  

 For paper application: please contact the Main Office.

It can be tough to save for college, and getting started can be the hardest part. This is why the nonprofit NYC Kids RISE has started the Save for College Program in partnership with the City of New York and the NYC Department of Education. It’s a scholarship and savings program designed to make college more accessible and achievable for your child. The program provides you, your family, and your community with a way to work together to save for your child’s future.

Please visit NYC Kids Rise to get started!

SLT Meetings 2020-2021

The NY Appellate Division issued a decision ruling that SLT meetings must be open to the public and subject to the Open Meetings Law. This means that SLTs must allow members of the general public, the school community and the press to be admitted to such meetings. Pursuant to Public Officers Law, Article 7, Sections 100-111: The public may observe and listen to the deliberations and decisions of the SLT meetings. The public, press and community are not allowed to vote or participate; however, they may be allowed to speak if the SLT chooses to allow it, but within established parameters, such as allowing an opportunity for ALL attendees to speak who wish to do so, and implementing a time limit to speak, such as a two minute limit. These parameters should be delineated within the SLT by-laws. If any attendees cause disruption and do not comply with requests to refrain, they may be escorted from the meeting by school security.
 
All meetings are held from 3:45PM-4:45PM. 
Meeting Dates: 
9/15
10/20
11/17
