Dear Parents/Guardians:

We are pleased to announce that our school is using "Pupil Path" web site to bring you immediate information regarding your child's education.

Pupil Path allows you to view the following:
  • Your child's assignments and projects along with due dates.
  • Your child's performance in each class including homework, class work, tests and projects.
  • Progress reports from teachers throughout the school year.
  • Handouts and assignments when your child is absent from school.
  • Your child's transcripts and graduation eligibility status.
  • School announcements, new calendar listings and upcoming events.
  • And, in some classrooms, your child's attendance.

We hope that by enabling you to see this information on a daily basis we will be able to work together to ensure that our children remain on track in every class.  As we work together we will ensure that our students get the most out of their education.

This will take the place of the old pupil progress report.

got lights?


 

    Dear School Community:

 

    New York City has undertaken a comprehensive plan to replace fluorescent lightingfixtures containing
   polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in public schools.
   PCBs were used in buildings across the country between 1950 and 1978.
   We are sending this letter to inform you that
our school building has been identified as having lighting
    fixtures which are likely to contain PCBs and wil therefore be replaced.

   The DOE has agreed to accelerate the lighting replacement program to complete all lighting fixture
   replacements by December 31, 2016.
   Fixture replacement for our building is estimated to begin in calendar year 2016.
   A project schedule will be provided prior to the commencement of work at our school.

   This work will take place outside of school hours, to minimize disruption to students and staff, and will increase the
   energy efficiency and environmental quality of school buildings.

While we understand concerns regarding the presence of materials containing PCBs in the school building,
the City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has advised that,
based on a pilot study of DOE schools,
 there is no immediate health concern and that health effects from long term exposure to the air in school buildings are
 unlikely to occur at the PCB levels seen in the NYC schools.
Please visit http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/downloads/pdf/epi/pcb.pdf
for more information
on PCBs and to address any questions about health concerns.
The DOE is actively working to address this issue
  and will keep us apprised as work progresses in our building.
  You may visit the DOE’s website to view regularly updated
  lists of buildings where work is currently underway or has been completed,
 as well as additional information related to the Department’s plan:
