Traffic and Safety at School

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please ensure you allow more time and patience in order to drop off/ pick up your kids at school by car. There is nearby roadwork that is creating congestion near our school.

PLEASE do not double park near the school when dropping off or picking up your children. Doing so causes the School buses to have to drive into oncoming traffic which is quite dangerous. Blocking the driveway in front of the school delays school buses as they try to drop off or pick up students, so be mindful of how you park. Please, remember, the driveway is for the school buses and should not be used to drop off and pick up students in personal vehicles. Everyone’s safety is important, please do everything you can to keep traffic moving near the school.

Welcome back to 2019-2020 School Year!

Welcome back friends and families! Hope you’ve had an amazing, exciting, and adventurous summer! The PTA works together in partnership with the school in hopes the first few days of school will operate smoothly.

Again, we welcome Mr. Walter Da Luz, our parent coordinator, for joining this big family. You have probably received an email from him regarding of what to expect on the first day of school.

Your child’s class for the 2019-2020 school year is found here. If you are unable to access the site, please follow the instructions on that site or contact the parent coordinator at wdaluz@schools.nyc.gov, 718.461.7462 Ext. 1162 (work), or 347.563.4356 (cell).

First day of school!

  • Signs will be posted directing students where to go for their class
  • Students in grades 1-3 will be stationed in the Cafeteria.
  • Students in grades 4-8 will be seated in the Auditorium.
  • Registering for Busing should be directed to Ms. Christy after 9 AM.
  • School supplies dropped off: make sure your child’s first & last name and the grade are labeled clearly to ensure smooth delivery to the correct classroom.

Traffic Safety

  • There are major traffic lane changes on Main Street and Reeves Avenue.
  • Queens College is also in session, so traffic will be heavy.
