NOTES FROM THE ADMINISTRATION


SCHOOL BREAKFAST

Please note: Breakfast starts at 7:40 am and ends promptly at 8:10 am so students can get ready for line up.

If you would like your Kindergarten student to have breakfast in the morning please arrive before 8:10 am. Students can enter the cafeteria from the Sherman St. playground door. 


PARKING AT DROP OFF AND PICK UP

When cars are double parked, they block school buses and teachers from finding spots. In the afternoon, the staff has also been experiencing cars blocking them in from leaving. Please do not double park around the school building. The school’s last resort is to request that  NYPD circulate the area.
