Drones – Parent Letter 2019

drones – parent letter 2019

January 15, 2019

Dear PS 101 Families:

Please be advised flying a drone during dismissal is dangerous to all students, staff and parents picking up students in and around the schoolyard. It was reported yesterday, someone was flying a drone during dismissal and this is not allowed on school property for obvious safety reasons.

Drones are fun and allow you to explore and see new things from a different view.  However, this is not considered safe in a mass area of crowds with children during dismissal.

Our NYC School Safety Agent will be outside circulating the school perimeter during dismissal in the coming days to ensure student safety and well-being. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at 1-347-563-4680.

Sincerely,

Gregg Korrol
