Weekly Update 11/20/2022

Dear Parents & Guardians of PS 184,

Hope this finds you well. Here are some important reminders for the week ahead.  

School Closed ~ Thanksgiving Recess November 24 and November 25. 

Recess Update: As the cold weather is coming upon us, we want to remind our families that the children should come to school prepared for the colder temperatures. Winter jackets, hats, scarves, and gloves are recommended. The recommendations made by the NYCDOE when it comes to recess is that students can go outside during recess even when temperatures are 0 degrees with the wind chill. Based on previous consultation with SLT, at P.S. 184Q, we agree that fresh air and exercise is important but revised the temperature for recess to 32 degrees or higher with the wind chill factor.  

Report Cards /NYCSA (NYC Schools Account) ~ As previously mentioned Report Cards will be released in December. You must have the NYCSA account to access your child’s report card. This account allows you to view your child’s grades, report cards, attendance history, test scores, transportation information, IEP information, submit various forms and track your child’s school progress. In the upcoming days we will be sending a letter with a creation code to create or add your child to your NYCSA account. If you need assistance with the creation of this account, please contact our Parent Coordinator Mrs. Blanchet at swblanchet@schools.nyc.gov. 

Middle School Application ~ The middle school application deadline is fast approaching. If you have any questions or need assistance to submit your child’s application, please contact our Guidance Counselor Mrs. Acquista macquista@schools.nyc.gov or our Parent Coordinator Mrs. Blanchet at swblanchet@schools.nyc.gov.  

Parent Survey ~ The deadline to complete the Parent Survey is Wednesday November 23. This will give us the opportunity to analyze the data and have a plan put into action as soon as possible. We appreciate your cooperation by sharing this information with us. Please use the following link to complete the survey https://ps184q.com/parent-survey-2022/ 

Health and Safety ~ This week you will receive (2) COVID-19 test kits. We strongly suggest you test your child before returning to school from Thanksgiving break. Also, please remember we are entering the cold and flu season, look for any signs that show your child might be sick and keep them at home to avoid the potential spread of illnesses. As a reminder if your child is absent for more than 2 days a doctor’s note should be provided.
