June School Safety

June 1, 2022

Dear PS 101 Parents/Guardians:

We have reached a very important time in the academic year. Although, the warm weather may feel like the year is winding down, instruction continues at full speed. Learning experiences in June are an important part of the curriculum and for many of our children it is the time when all of the instruction from previous months culminates and challenges students.

We ask for your cooperation in helping us do everything we can to optimize learning for your children. We rely on your partnership to ensure you keep the following points in mind:

Daily Attendance:

Attendance and being on time is vital to your child’s progress. Did you know that a student with a 90% attendance rate actually missed one month of school? That’s a reality. Everyday counts! Students should only be absent when they are not feeling well or sick.

Student Attire:

Students should come to school dressed appropriately to learn at all times. The proper tone of a school building is greatly enhanced when students are dressed for successful learning. Tank tops or halter tops are not permitted. We are fortunate to have functional air conditioners in every classroom which eliminates the need to wear scant clothing. Shorts that are “finger-tip” length or longer are permissible; however short shorts are not. The finger-tip rule: shorts should be longer than the tips of the child’s finger, when arms are held straight down the side of their legs.

Student Safety- Shoes:

During the course of the day, children go up and down the steps and play outside during their designated lunch period. For your child’s own safety, sandals, flip-flops, backless and high heel shoes are not permitted to be worn in school. As shoes like this are deemed unsafe for physical activities. Children wearing shoes of this kind will not be permitted to play in gym class. Furthermore, students must wear sneakers to Physical Education classes. Failure to do so constitutes being unprepared for class and may impact negatively on report cards grades.

We expect your cooperation in maintaining a safe learning environment for all of our children.

Sincerely,

Gregg Korrol

Principal
