New Online Registration Process for NYC Schools Account for Parents

Parent accounts
 are now available and offer a new way for parents and guardians to access key information about their children. In response to feedback from schools and parents, parents will be able to register online for a NYC Schools account starting June 24 by visiting
http://schools.nyc.gov/myaccount on any computer or internet-connected device and following the instructions listed in the letter that will be sent home in your child's report card envelope on Friday, June 26th. This letter will include their Account Creation Code as well as their child’s 9-digit student ID number.

We are very excited that now you have an alternative to coming up to school. During the summer months, it will now be easier for you to register for your new parent account. If you are having difficulties with the process, please do not hesitate to call Mrs. DiBenedetto. She is available during the summer on Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

While you and your child are enjoying the summer, please make reading a part of your summer fun! Not only will your child be entertained by books, but summer reading will maintain and reinforce important reading skills taught over the course of the year. We are strongly recommending that your child join the summer reading program at your local public library. During our next summer reading assembly in September, 2015, students who participate will win goody bags with new books.

 

Each student in grades K-7 is to follow these summer reading guidelines:
Grade K, 1, 2 – read 6 books accompanied by 6 book reports
Grade 3, 4 – read 5 books accompanied by 5 book reports
Grade 5 – read 4 books accompanied by 4 book reports

CELL PHONE POLICY - As you may or may not be aware, the Mayor and Chancellor have changed the official policy on cell phones in schools.  As part of this new policy, the DOE has directed schools to set forth their own policy as to when and where cell phones and other personal electronic devices may or may not be used during the school day. After consultation with the School Leadership Team, the School Safety Team and the Administrative Cabinet, we have agreed upon the policy as outlined below. 

 In Effect as of Monday March 2, 2015:

 Phones should not be seen or heard in school.  This includes timers, alarms and any other electronic noise.

Field trip use of electronic devices will be based on chaperone/administration discretion.

PS 232 and the DOE are not responsible for lost or damaged phones or other electronic devices. They are brought to school at the risk of the owner.

Students will not be permitted to use phones or other electronic devices during lunch, recess or when using the restrooms.

Electronic devices can be used during the school day or during after-school activities only when directly supervised by a school staff member.

 Confiscation and return of electronic devices

Students using a cell phone or other electronic device in violation of the above stipulations are subject to:

First Offense:  Confiscation of item and return at end of school day.

Second Offense:  Confiscation of item and return following parent/guardian conference to be scheduled no earlier than one week from the date of confiscation and to be held on school days between 3:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Third Offense:  Revocation of privilege to bring any electronic device to school for the remainder of the school year.


PARENT SURVEYS - Thank you to over 700 parents that completed their PARENT SURVEYS this school year.  Like last year, prizes were won by three of our school families, pizza parties were won by 9 classes in our school, and close to 600 students won a coupon for a "No Uniform Day"!!! Ms. DiBenedetto, our parent coordinator, worked diligently with our parent community to get those surveys done! As a result 87% of our parent community participated and close to 600 coupons were distributed to our students for "No Uniform Day". Thank you!
