  • NYCPS Partial Eclipse Notice Monday April 8

    See attachment for fully formatted letter/translations:

    April 5, 2024

    Dear Families:

    We are writing to inform you that on Monday, April 8, the New York City area will experience a partial
    solar eclipse beginning around 2:00 p.m.

    A solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and earth. This casts a shadow that
    may make the sky dark for the eclipse's duration, as the sun will become approximately 90% covered
    in NYC during the peak coverage time, around 3:25 p.m. While this may overlap with school dismissal
    times, please know that there will be no changes to dismissal, and after-school programming will
    remain in effect.

    Please also be prepared for increased traffic throughout the area and consider using public transit
    instead of driving during this time. 

    If you and your family are planning to view the eclipse, please make sure to do so safely by using proper,
    specialized eye protection. Regular sunglasses and other filters are not a safe replacement for solar
    eclipse glasses. Glasses are available at the Brooklyn Public Library, Queens Public Library, and New York
    Public Library while supplies last. It is recommended to call in advance to ensure supplies are available.
    Please take precautions, whether inside or out, as looking at the sun without protection can cause loss |
    of the ability to see colors, loss of vision, or even permanent blindness.

    For more information on solar eclipse eye safety, please visit the New York City Department of Health
    guidance: nyc.gov/site/doh/about/press/pr2024/solar-eclipse-safety-precautions.page.

    Sincerely,
    New York City Public Schools

  • Water Test Remediation Letter March 14, 2024

    Kevin Moran
    Chief School Operations Officer
    Department of Education
    52 Chambers Street
    New York, NY 10007


    March 14, 2024 

    Dear Families and Staff:

    This is a follow-up to a October 10, 2023 water test results notification letter. I am pleased to
    share we have successfully completed remediation work at P.S. 102 - Brooklyn (P.S. 102
    The Bayview at 211 72 Street, Brooklyn, NY 11209).

    On September 27, 2023, all operational sources of water at P.S. 102 - Brooklyn, including for drinking or cooking, were
    tested for the presence of lead. The final laboratory results indicate that there are no elevated levels of lead in any of the outlets.

    Details of prior elevated results are attached and complete test results are posted on the
    DOE website at https://www.schools.nyc.gov/schools/K102. Click “Data and Reports” and
    look for the “Facilities” heading.

    Out of an abundance of caution, the custodial staff will continue to flush the P.S. 102 -
    Brooklyn water systems on Monday mornings and after holidays before school starts, to
    eliminate stagnant water. This is part of our robust protocol to ensure safe drinking water is
    available for students and staff.

    Please visit https://www.schools.nyc.gov/school-life/space-and-facilities/space-and-facilitiesreports/water-safety
    to learn more about the protocol we use to ensure the safety of drinking water in each and every school.

    Thank you for your understanding and support. We wish you and your students a wonderful
    rest of the school year.

    Sincerely yours,
    Kevin Moran
