  • **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,

    Administration

    P.S./I.S. 268 Q

In 2016 the YWCA of Queens partnered with PS/IS 268 to deliver the College Access for All program, a new Department of Education initiative, to all 7th graders at the school. Through this program we supported the school in taking all the 7th graders on two college visits,  where they attended a College Day and a Career Day hosted by the College. Students received information about making high school choices, and were able to attend a series of 10 college awareness workshops aimed at dispelling myths about college and helping them to start to plan for going to college after high school. In addition, all 7th graders got a College Access for All  backpack and t-shirt.

Each year, at least one of the college trips will be to a City University of New York.   This year,  we are planning to charter a  bus to visit 1 or 2 campuses outside NYC.  Parents of 7th grade students are encouraged to get involved with this program!  You can volunteer to be a chaperone on one of the college trips, or  you may volunteer at our College Day and/or Career Day event to talk  about your experiences in college, or in your career.  We encourage parents to support our program by being present at the Parent College Awareness evening to be held. 

Please look out for our flyers and notices for this event.
