It is hard to believe that the fall semester ended. The spring semester began on Tuesday, January 31st; it brings with it many new opportunities, possibilities as well as challenges for all students.

In order to help your child succeed and flourish during the spring semester we ask that you review the list of school expectations found below:
Please note that classes begin at 8:20 am. Students should report to school at least ten minutes prior to their first class in order to put their coats in their lockers, use the rest rooms and be in their classroom to start the educational process. Losing valuable class time can sometimes lead to failed classes. Breakfast is available to students from 7:30 a.m. until 8:10 a.m. Students are not permitted to eat in the classroom, so if your child is bringing breakfast to school, they must arrive in time to eat and be in their first period class on time.
Good attendance is essential for students to succeed. A missed day at school is a missed opportunity for learning to take place. Please review your child’s attendance and report to us any absences for medical reasons.
Prepared for School:
All students should come prepared for school each day with their notebooks, loose-leaf paper and subject dividers. Students are expected to take notes, write down homework assignments and dates of upcoming quizzes. Please check your child’s notebook and school issued agenda books on a regular basis to see that s/he is keeping up with this task as students are graded on its upkeep. Check to see if they have homework and are doing it.
Report cards are distributed three (3) times a semester. Please review the dates listed above.
Please be aware of the dress code.
Dress Code –
a. Male students are not permitted to wear their pants below their waist.
b. Female students are not permitted to wear short-shorts, mini-skirts, see through apparel or low cut tops. All tops must cover the midriff.
c. No headwear is permitted in the building (hats, scarves, du-rags, etc.)
DOE My Grades is an online grading tool used by teachers to record assignments, grades and attendance. Parents and students can access updates of all classroom information through the parent/student NYC MySchools account which can be access at the following site: https://www.myschools.nyc/en/account/log-in/. We encourage you to check your child’s progress on a weekly basis to ensure that he/she is on track.
