Welcomeback_2017ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL PROCEDURES FOR THE 2017-18  SCHOOL YEAR

We are all excited to see you on Thursday, September 7th! Please take a moment to read all the information related to your child’s specific grade. Every grade has a different arrival and dismissal protocol.

The official school day begins at 8:30 AM and ends at 2:50 PM daily at PS 29. The doors to the school will open at 8:28 AM and close at 8:35 AM.  Students entering the building after 8:35 AM must use the main entrance of the building and will be marked late.

All doors to school open at 8:28 AM

Please note that parents will not be allowed into the school building (or school lobby)  before the doors open at 8:28 AM (except for early drop-off and breakfast) in the morning and 2:45 PM in the afternoon (for Pre-K and Kindergarten pick up).

For EARLY drop-off: FREE breakfast is available to all children in the cafeteria, every day, starting at 7:30 AM and ending at 8:10 AM. Pre-K and Kindergarten students who attend breakfast are escorted to their classroom by staff members.  There is no need to pre-register, free breakfast is provided to all NYC public school students.

All Pre-K families enter the school through the main entrance on Henry Street. The doors to the school open at 8:28 AM sharp.  

For safety reasons, families are not allowed to wait inside the lobby area of the school. We need to allow for access into and out of the building, and thus we ask that you wait outside on the sidewalk.
