You will receive many important forms to complete at the beginning of the school year, however there is one that is vital at this time of year. Please complete a BLUE EMERGENCY CARD by Monday, September 11th! It is extremely important for you to indicate the people to whom your child can be released. We need updated emergency contact for all of our students. And please make sure to write legibly.

If you haven’t already, CLICK HERE to complete the DISMISSAL SURVEY for all of your children. We need to know how your child is being dismissed every day. If you have any questions, please contact Liz at ewanttaja@schools.nyc.gov .
