New Arrival Procedure Letter 2018
Jan
29
to Jun 25

New Arrival Procedure Letter 2018

  • 450 Pacific School / P.S. 38 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Our safety committee has had extensive conversations about enhancing our safety procedures within our school community. As a result of these discussions and in order to continue with our vision of building student independence we are introducing a new arrival procedure.

 

Beginning on Monday, January 29, 2018, we ask that parents of grades K-5 escort their children to the Dean Street entrance and allow them to walk in independently. Pre-Kindergarten students will continue to arrive at 8:00 a.m. and walk directly to their classrooms escorted by their parents. Students in grades K-2 will meet their teachers in the school auditorium at 8:00 a.m. Support staff and other members of the community will be available to escort children as needed. Keep in mind that the doors to the school will open promptly at 8:00 a.m. We ask that parents adhere to this arrival time particularly during inclement weather, because the school doors will not open before 8:00 a.m. For safety purposes, parents will not be allowed to enter the school during arrival or dismissal.  All students in grades 3-5 will enter through the Dean Street doors at 8:00 a.m. and walk directly to their classrooms. Teachers will meet students at their classroom doors where breakfast will be served.

 

Students who arrive after 8:15 a.m. must continue to obtain a late pass. All parents who enter the school after this time must also sign-in with our School Safety Agent Gasby. Identification must be provided at this time. All of our exit doors are alarmed; therefore, parents must leave the building using the Dean Street Exit ONLY.

 

During arrival and dismissal procedures, teachers need their full attention on their students. We want to encourage parents to meet with their child’s teacher during Parent Engagement time on Tuesday afternoons from 2:30 p.m. to 3:05 p.m.

 

Thank you for your continued cooperation during arrival and dismissal procedures.

 

Sincerely,

The P.S. 38 Safety Committee Members

Dear Parents/Guardians & Staff:

The PTA at P.S. 38 is currently looking for individuals willing to serve as leaders on the Executive Board for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year.

A nomination meeting will be held on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 8:30 AM in the P.S. 38 cafeteria. Nominations will be taken from the floor for each available office. The mandatory officer positions that will be included in the upcoming Spring Elections are: Co-President #1, Co-President #2, Recording Secretary, and Treasurer. The non-mandatory officer positions to be filled are Vice President and Media Secretary. (See descriptions of each position on reverse.)

As a matter of clarification, if someone is interested in running for the office of President, he/she may run as an individual. However, if someone chooses to run for the office of Co-President, he/she may do so with another individual of his/her choice on a single ticket, as Co-President #1 and Co-President #2.

The DEADLINE to submit nominations is on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at the nomination meeting. No additional candidates will be added to the ballot after this date; and none may be added the evening of the Spring Elections.

All parents, legally appointed guardians, or persons in parental relation to a child currently attending P.S. 38 are eligible to hold PTA office, unless they are employees of the school.
