  • Kindergarten and G&T Application opens on December 7th

    Image did not load.

     

    Dear families,

    Do you have a child born in 2018? If so, you will apply to kindergarten this winter! The kindergarten application will open next week.  

    You also have the option to apply to Gifted & Talented programs on the same application. 

    Here’s what you can do now to prepare:  

    • Find out what your child’s zoned kindergarten program is by entering your home address at schoolsearch.schools.nyc.  Districts 1, 7, and 23 do not have zoned schools, and children living in these districts have priority to all schools in their district.
    • Explore elementary schools in our searchable MySchools directory.  Watch the kindergarten video playlist on our website, featuring several MySchools tutorials, including how to create an account.
    • Learn how to navigate the directory. You can search program options near you by entering your address and filter based on your needs. For example, you can filter for programs that offer late pickup.
    • Attend school open houses! Visiting schools online or in person is a great way to imagine what it’s like to go there. Each school’s website is listed on its MySchools page, or contact them directly to learn if they will be hosting any virtual or in-person events. You can also view and save events to your calendar using our new MySchools Events Calendar.

    All New York City families with children born in 2018 are encouraged to apply. Even if your child is currently attending a pre-K program, you still have to apply to kindergarten.  

    If you list G&T programs on your application, eligibility will be determined after the application closes. Current pre-K students at DOE/district schools, Pre-K Centers, NYC Early Education Centers (NYCEECs), or charter school are evaluated by their current pre-K teachers. Current pre-K students at private or parochial school programs, or for children who are not yet in school will be contacted by the Division of Early Childhood Education to set up interviews that will determine eligibility. 

    Want to learn more? Visit our kindergarten admissions website. We’ll also be sending a series of updates and reminders throughout the application process.

    Still have questions? Call us at 718-935-2009 or visit your local Family Welcome Center.

  • Please read this important message on DOE Device Inventory taking place on November 17th.

    November 4, 2022 

    Dear Parent or Guardian, 

    The New York City Department of Education is performing a comprehensive inventory of all devices loaned to students. To achieve this, we’re asking for all devices to be brought to school on November 17, 2022 to perform a device inventory. Devices include desktops, laptops, and tablets. 

    How this impacts you 

    Throughout the pandemic, the DOE has loaned devices to the students; these devices must be brought back into the school on the days of the inventory. The devices will be verified they are in good functioning condition and returned to the student to be brought back home for continued learning.  

    What you need to do 

    Make sure that your child brings their DOE device with them to school on November 17. They do not need to bring accessories (for example, the power cord or keyboard). Please have your child bring the device to school even if it is broken or not in good condition. The DOE will look into replacing it under warranty. 

    What will happen to the device 

    A DOE vendor will scan the barcode on the device and return it to your child. This should only take a few seconds and the device will be returned to your child on November 23. The device will have a sticker on it, indicating it has been scanned. Please do not remove this sticker. If you have any questions or concerns, please work with our school’s SPOC, Mr. Silverman at msilverman3@schools.nyc.gov 

    Thank you

Covid-19 Notices

  • Please read the following post about 1 case of covid-19 reported in our school community today, December 1, 2022

    12/1/22

    Dear P.S. 102 The Bayview at 211 72 STREET community,

    I am writing to notify you that a member or members of our school community have tested positive for COVID-19 and may have exposed others while at school.

    Below you will find guidance on next steps that will help keep our school community healthy and safe. The information below reflects the expertise of the Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), Test & Trace Corp (T2), and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).

    Note: DOHMH has issued new guidance due to the current transmission level of COVID. All people, regardless of vaccination status are strongly encouraged to wear masks at all times when indoors in a public setting. Please see the DOHMH advisory for more information.

    What Happens Now?

    · Students and staff who shared classroom space with the individual who tested positive will receive at-home tests with guidance and directions. All may continue to attend school as long as they test negative for COVID and have no COVID like symptoms.

    · The Situation Room will monitor our school for any further interventions.

    · Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious.

    · If your child is feeling sick, keep them at home.

     

    How do we stay healthy?

    We strongly encourage the COVID-19 vaccination for all age-eligible students. Find a vaccine site today at https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/. There is no cost to be vaccinated.

    Vaccine booster shots are now available for all fully vaccinated New Yorkers 5 years and older. These shots boost your immunity from an initial vaccination series. A booster shot is recommended for any adult who received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least five months ago, the second dose of the Moderna vaccine at least six months ago, or the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

    Please remember to follow these important actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).

    2. Wear a face covering if you are symptomatic or exposed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

    3. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.

    How can I stay updated?

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa

    For additional information on COVID-19, visit schools.nyc.gov/coronavirus or call 311.

A booster shot is recommended for any adult who received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least five months ago, the second dose of the Moderna vaccine at least six months ago, or the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

    Please remember to follow these important actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).

    2. Wear a face covering if you are symptomatic or exposed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

    3. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.

    How can I stay updated?

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa

  • Kindergarten and G&T application opens today!

    The Kindergarten and G&T application will open today on myschools.nyc and remain open through 1/20/23.

    Dear families,

    Do you have a child born in 2018? If so, you will apply to kindergarten this winter! The kindergarten application will open next week.  

    You also have the option to apply to Gifted & Talented programs on the same application. 

    Here’s what you can do now to prepare:  

    • Find out what your child’s zoned kindergarten program is by entering your home address at schoolsearch.schools.nyc.  Districts 1, 7, and 23 do not have zoned schools, and children living in these districts have priority to all schools in their district.
    • Explore elementary schools in our searchable MySchools directory.  Watch the kindergarten video playlist on our website, featuring several MySchools tutorials, including how to create an account.
    • Learn how to navigate the directory. You can search program options near you by entering your address and filter based on your needs. For example, you can filter for programs that offer late pickup.
    • Attend school open houses! Visiting schools online or in person is a great way to imagine what it’s like to go there. Each school’s website is listed on its MySchools page, or contact them directly to learn if they will be hosting any virtual or in-person events. You can also view and save events to your calendar using our new MySchools Events Calendar.

    All New York City families with children born in 2018 are encouraged to apply. Even if your child is currently attending a pre-K program, you still have to apply to kindergarten.  

    If you list G&T programs on your application, eligibility will be determined after the application closes. Current pre-K students at DOE/district schools, Pre-K Centers, NYC Early Education Centers (NYCEECs), or charter school are evaluated by their current pre-K teachers. Current pre-K students at private or parochial school programs, or for children who are not yet in school will be contacted by the Division of Early Childhood Education to set up interviews that will determine eligibility. 

    Want to learn more? Visit our kindergarten admissions website. We’ll also be sending a series of updates and reminders throughout the application process.

    Still have questions? Call us at 718-935-2009 or visit your local Family Welcome Center.

    Best,

    The Elementary Admissions Team

  • PS 102 Celebrates The Big Giveback

    Dear PS 102 Families and Staff,

    The Big Give Back 2022!

    During the week of December 12-December 16 we will celebrate citizenship through giving back to our school and our community.  Planned activities will include collecting items for various organizations and sending cheer and thanks to seniors and staff in our school.  We invite you to participate in a way that works for your family or classroom and to share the spirit of giving with those close to you and with our school community!  Here are some of the ways you can celebrate THE BIG GIVEBACK!

    1. Ms. Papantoniou’s class will collect canned and dry food goods all week at the front entrance doors. They will bring all items to the Fourth Ave. Food Pantry on December 19th.
    2. Ms. Galvin, Ms. Watters and Ms. Russo will collect coats in the large school yard at dismissal on Monday December 12th from 2:15-3:00pm. Coats will be delivered with a cheerful note in each pocket to NY Coat Drive.
    3. The PTA will collect the following items on Friday December 16th: gently used winter hats, gloves and scarves as well as new socks or underwear. Adult sizes are most needed. Items will be donated to the Bay Ridge Sanctuary Project at Good Shepherd.
    4. Thanks "Snow" Much. Make a snow themed thank you card for a PS 102 teacher, paraprofessional, custodian, school aide, office staff, administrator, kitchen staff, security or service provider.  Download a snow globe, snowman or snowflake template and decorate it or make your own snow-themed design. Include a brief message to the person you want to thank and be sure to sign your name and class. Return cards to Ms. Sheri by 12/16/22. Cards will be given out to staff the following week.   
    5. Classes (and individual students) are invited to make cheerful seasonal greeting cards which will be sent to a nursing home. Please include child’s first name/age or grade to close the greeting.  Cards should be sent to Ms. Brown by 12/16/22.
    6. Let’s celebrate the joy of giving back to those who support us and help us all year and to those who may be in need. Share your ideas and stories and your own class projects by sending photos for a story on our website to Ms. Sheri at melliotsheri@schools.nyc.gov, posting on the PTA Facebook page or telling your story to your class. 

    Wishing you all a Happy December!
