  • **TO ALL PARENTS /GUARDIANS : Please submit your child's Emergency Contact --Blue Card**

    Emergency Blue Cards are given out each year to students to be filled out by you and sent back to the school.  Blue cards are to be updated YEARLY.

    It is extremely important that the school has the current, correct information for contacting parents or guardians  at all times - especially during the school day.   It is the responsibility of Parent/Guardian to see that the Blue Emergency Contact Card, which is kept on file in the main office, is completely filled out and accurate. Please notify the school in writing of any changes that may occur, so that we can update official Department of Education forms and databases.

    If your child becomes ill or it is necessary to close school early due to an unforeseen emergency, we will use the Blue Emergency Card contact information to contact you.   It is extremely important that we have ALL  CURRENT phone numbers written clearly on the cards.

    If you have family members or friends listed as emergency contacts please be sure that those adults you list on the Emergency Card know that they have been listed.

    If there is a significant change (i.e. an address or name change) please contact Ms. McRae, Pupil Acct. Secretary @ (718) 206 -3240 x1013 to have this information updated in the NYC department of Education database.  You will need to bring in proof of address for any address changes.

    Thank you for your cooperation,
