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 www.nyc.gov/notifynyc or by calling 311. If you have any questions, you can call or e mail Sherri Donders our Parent Coordinator.
