Picking up early
When you want to pick up your child early from school, we kindly ask if you can send a letter with the child so that the teacher is aware and can send down the child with his or her book bag during their lunch period. When a parent or guardian comes to pick up a child and the staff is not aware, it does take a longer time to bring the child up and retrieve their belongings.

We only have about 180 parents signed up for our school's remind app, which means there is about 500 parents who are still not signed up. Here you will receive important information on school events and other activities! Please see attached for steps on how to sign up. Remind can be a very useful tool.
Reminders for the new school year! (Things to keep in mind)

Breakfast starts promptly at 7:40 a.m., the side doors on East 1st street will not open before the time posted. Additionally, the side door closes at 8 a.m. sharp.
When dropping your child off for breakfast by car, please pull to the curb. Do not double park or stop in the middle of the street.
If you are dropping off an item to your child please make sure your child’s name and class are written on the items. If your child needs to receive the item right away, please inform security.
P.S. 216 sends home frequent robo calls throughout the school year, if you do not receive them, your phone number may be outdated or incorrect. Please visit Ms. Diane in the Main Office to update your phone number in ATS. Updating your number on the blue card will not update in our system.
When visiting our school please make sure you have a valid I.D to enter our building, no exceptions will be made. Examples of a valid I.D.: Drivers/Non Driver’s License, Passport, NYC ID Card.
If you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday in their classroom, please schedule a time with the teacher.
When filling out the blue cards, please consider all adults (18 and over) that can possibly pick up your child in an emergency or if the child is sick. We will not release any child to an adult if they are not on the blue card.
If you plan on picking up your child early, please contact the teacher with a note/verbally, or call the main office to inform us in advanced, so your child can be ready. When picking your child up during their lunch period or if they are in a different class, it takes longer for them to get their belongings to leave if the staff is unware. Please plan accordingly.
Please do not drop off your child in the main lobby prior to the East 1 St. doors opening, children will not be allowed in the main lobby prior to 7:40 a.m. Children can ONLY enter through the main lobby after the side doors close at 8 a.m.
