I write this morning to ask you to please assist us by coming in on time and making sure that you take your child's temperature is taken at home in order to complete the NYC Health Screening properly.
We are having too many students arrive after 8:20am. We leave the gates open an extra ten minutes as a courtesy to our families, but after 8:20am, your child is late for school.
The most crucial learning hours of a school day are the morning hours, because they are when students are most attentive. Students who are tardy miss the beginning of their morning classes, and they also cause a distraction when they arrive late to class.
