Stay Informed and Get Involved

Staying informed about your child's academic performance and behavior at school is key to making sure he/she is developing the skills he/she will need to be successful in college and careers.

The easiest way to stay updated about your child's education is to get involved at your child's school: check in regularly with your child's teacher(s), attend parent teacher conferences, volunteer at school events, and/or join the parent association.

Parents Can Sign up for School Alerts
Sign up for a free service by visiting schools.nyc.gov or call 311.  If school opens late or dismisses early, or other unexpected events occur, you can receive an update via phone, text message, or e-mail, through Notify NYC, NYC's public notification system.


Clear the Air
STOP IDLING  - your vehicle idles when the engine is on but it isn't moving.  Reducing idling makes the air cleaner for your kids and will help reduce asthma symptons. The law now limits vehicle idling to no more than ONE minute adjacent to a public or private school.  Fines of $300 or more may be issued.
