Daily Announcements

Notify NYC
New York City has a public notification program called Notify NYC. It sends updates for emergency situations at school and other events that have an impact on the school day by phone, text message, or e-mail to parents and guardians who sign up for the service. The service updates parents about delayed school openings and early dismissals, student relocations, and temporary school closures related to weather or other unexpected events. Parents and guardians can choose to receive alerts for up to five zip codes, and will receive notifications about schools within those zip codes.
We encourage you to sign up either by visiting or by calling 311. If you have any questions, you can call or e mail Sherri Donders our Parent Coordinator.

ARIS Parent Link

If you received a letter about ARIS Parent Link, I ask that you please take the time to go to and sign in with the student ID and temporary password that was provided to you.
When you log into your child's page, please be sure to check that the information on that page is correct.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
