P.S. 154 News & Information
We have limited hours at the school for summer. Please call 718-768-0057 and press 0 for the main office. You may also email our parent coordinator, Debby Wattenbarger, at email@example.com.
The School Building is closed for cleaning and maintenance the week of August 22. We will return on Monday, August 29. Please be patient as we are not able to respond to phone messages this week and our email responses will be delayed.
In the meantime, you can still complete your blue card on line here: http://ps154.org/students/blue-card/
Each year you must complete two “Blue Cards” (they are literally blue) with contact and health information about your child(ren). Here at PS 154, we have created an online form that is more efficient at capturing the “Blue Card” data. This on line process is much easier for you to complete than the paper form. We are asking everyone to do this on-line. (Returning families who completed this last school year need to fill it in again for this year, even if there were no changes.)
This year we are asking permission to share some information such as home address & emails with our PTA & Teachers to improve on communications and help create our Class Lists. Please note Yes or No to the first question if you would like to share your information. Emergency contacts and health care information is always kept private.
Go to: http://ps154.org/students/blue-card/ and follow the instructions.
The benefits of filling in the online form (vs. the paper “Blue Card”) are:
- You only have to fill in one form for up to 3 children (instead of 2 cards per child)
- The information will be printed and legible, making it easier for us to contact you
- We can create an electronic roster so we can more easily match parent names to children
Of course, you may still ask the office for physical “Blue Cards”, fill them in and return them to school.
For privacy reasons, all information other than email addresses and child’s class and grade (if you sign up for notices) will be taken offline after we have printed the “Blue Cards”, and all information will always be password protected.
If you have any questions, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Debby Wattenbarger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718 768 0057.
It’s time for Summer Letters!
Letters sent by way of regular mail went out today, August 3, 2016. All Kindergarten children will receive their letters via regular mail only as well as those students we do not have a confirmed email for. Please note, this takes time and letters may not be received on the same day. Feel free to call the school at 718-768-0057 and press 0 for the main office at the end of next week if you still have not received your notification .
Email notifications will go out by the end of this week.
Enjoy the beautiful weather!
Teacher letters for next school year will go out in August. If you haven’t done so yet, please send your summer email address to receive these letters via email to Debby Wattenbarger at email@example.com. Just because you receive this email blast from PS 154 does not mean we have your email for the summer letters.
All Kindergarten letters will go out regular mail. Any child we do not have an email for will also be sent their summer letter through regular mail. Please note, this takes time and letters may not be received on the same day. Check the web site next week to see when you can expect the letters.
And finally, incoming K families, please save the date for August 13 from 9:30-11am. The PTA is sponsoring a Meet & Greet in our school yard. We hope you can attend.
