Any and all electronics, devices and toys must remain in the backpack until after dismissal. We ask that your child not wear Smart Watches during the school day.
The use of electronics, cell phones, smart watchesare not allowed during the school day. If a student has a device, it must remain out of sight in their backpack all day, including at lunch and recess, until after dismissal.
If we see a device, we will confiscate it and call parents to come pick it up at the end of the day.
If you need to communicate with your child, call the main office at 718-923-4750.

Every year the critters make their way into the public school system. Generally they’re discovered as early as late September and disappear sometime in the spring. Important things to keep in mind:
Lice do not discriminate.
Contrary to myth, they prefer clean hair to unwashed hair, so please don’t judge.
They do prefer hiding in longer and thicker hair.
Lice affect pre-k, kindergarten and 1st grade kids the most and almost exclusively because of their normal physical contact – little kids love hugging and play wrestling and sitting close and it’s hard (and just plain sad) to train them not to.
You may want to start talking to your little ones about not sharing hats.
One of the big problems with lice infestations is that the affected kids have to miss school until they’re lice-free.
It helps if the class families work together to eradicate or at least reduce the problem by doing nightly head checks, for example.
In the first days of school you may want to consult with your teacher about helping her/him take preventive measures.
