In order to ensure the safety of all of students, it is imperative that we know exactly how students will be getting home each day.  We understand that at times, it is necessary to make changes to a child’s regular dismissal plan.  In order to facilitate a safe and smooth dismissal for all students, we respectfully request the following:
–          All changes to dismissal plans must be communicated in writing to the school.  This includes changes to a child attending afterschool, riding the bus, being dismissed as a walker or if a child is not attending an afterschool club.
–          Please refrain from emailing your child’s teacher a change to dismissal during the school day, as we cannot guarantee the email will be received prior to dismissal.
–          All emergency calls for changes to dismissal, must be received by 2:30PM.  We cannot accept changes to dismissal procedures after 2:30PM.  This is to ensure adequate time to notify the child and the classroom teacher prior to dismissal.
We thank you for your cooperation and adhesion to these procedures for the safety of all students.
On Friday, February 28th, our Grade 3 students will be taking a field trip to the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn.  This is the second of three trips our students will be taking to the museum throughout the year.
