It was great that so many of you responded so quickly about which class your child will be in. Please note, we are not sending class lists, only information about individual child class placement. Please include your child’s name when requesting this information. (Nsmith3@schools.nyc.gov)
I had a few reminders. Please remember that all school wide emails are posted and archived on our web site at http://www.cpe2.org.
School opens Thursday, September 4th at 8:20. We will start gathering (except for pre K) in the big yard at 8AM. This will be a line up, not a recess. No uniforms, no supplies needed. All students DO NEED a back pack that is large enough to fit a 9″ by 12″ folder without folding it. NO WHEELS PLEASE.
There will be a welcome breakfast for parents in the school cafeteria on Thursday, September 4th, after the students go upstairs hosted by the Parents Association.
Transportation: We expect to receive a list of bus routes and stops from OPT this week. A special email will go out at that point. You will be able to request a school bus route or a metro card if your child qualifies. Registration on the bus and metro card distribution is based on DOE regulations of distance from school and age of child.
Lunch is served from the first day and is free to all students. (Pre K and Kindergarten students have an early dismissal both Thursday and Friday.) Home lunches must comply with our healthy eating rules. Sweets (candy, “fruit” snacks, cookies, cake, pudding, granola bars, cereal bars, PediaSure, etc) and high fat (chips etc) are not allowed. One snack food (like crackers, pretzels, goldfish) We do have nut free classrooms, but the cafeteria is not nut free. We organize each class lunch table so that the front end is nut free.
