Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our phones have been down for some time now,
and we are not sure when the main line will be back up.
Please use this number until further notice
212-844-4900 – Dial 3 to reach EVCS.

We had a great week and played outside every day!
Be sure to layer up and dress warm on cold days – we still go outside!
Remember to label all items so that we can reunite them with your kids.
These are terrific labels, or use a Sharpie on the inside tags!

Let’s see what is coming up next week…
