Ice Cream Sales Resume at P.S. 101

Dear PS 101 Families:

We are happy to announce our plans to resume ice cream sales to our students this week. Returning to fundraising will allow us to generate much needed funds for our school.

With students eating in their homerooms during designated periods, we will be coming around to classrooms with ice cream selections for children to purchase. For those students who are interested in buying a sweet treat to enjoy after their lunch, you can send your child to school with money sealed in an envelope. Please make sure the envelope is clearly labeled with your child’s name and class.  All ice cream selections will be sold for $1.00!

Let’s bring a happy smile to your child’s face with the perfect spring dessert! ICE CREAM sales will begin Monday, May 17th for $1.00.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your child’s teacher or feel free to contact our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at MLloyd2@schools.nyc.gov or at 1-347-563-4680.

Sincerely,

Gregg Korrol

Principal

Important Safety Issues

IMPORTANT SAFETY ISSUES 

Dear PS 101 Families: 

Please be reminded of health and safety protocols all families must follow with morning arrivals and afternoon dismissals on our school premises. I am relying on your cooperation and partnership to respect these guidelines as it everyone’s responsibility! 

For safety of the students, staff and fellow parents, I am asking that you keep your dogs away from all arrival and dismissal areas. Remember, while we all love our dogs, you cannot always predict their behavior and some children are frightened of dogs. We must ensure the safety and well-being for all of our students first and foremost. Please be sure to have your dog on a leash at all times and away from all arrival and dismissal areas

Additionally, all members of our school community in and around our school perimeter must wear a face covering while dropping children off in the morning at arrivals and while picking up at dismissals. COVID-19 is still clear and present, we must adhere to city and state mandates to wear a face mask and ensure your six feet social distancing when coming to/from school property.

Our School Safety Agents will be circulating the school perimeter to ensure these health and safety protocols are followed each day. We appreciate your cooperation regarding these important safety matters. If you have any question sir concerns, please feel  free to contact our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Margaret Lloyd at 1-347-563-4680 or via email at MLloyd2@schools.nyc.gov

Sincerely,
