NEW DROP OFF & PICK UP PROCEDURES
To the P.S. 184 Community:
From the moment I was appointed to the role of Principal of P.S. 184Q my first priority has been to ensure the safety of the students and staff. My safety first initiative involves both physical and emotional safety. I have consistently demonstrated that this is the expectation for all who service and interact with our students. I would like to assure each and every one of you that I continue to be committed to this critical responsibility. Recent events in our nation and within our local community have prompted me to examine everyday practices regarding entry and exit procedures as well as other aspects of security. I am immediately implementing changes in the entry and dismissal procedures at P.S. 184Q. These changes will reduce the number of doors used for entry and dismissal, allowing for more close monitoring of the entrances and exits that are used. Though we understand and appreciate the need to address individual schedules and have made every effort to be accommodating about this in the past, the safety of our students and staff members must be prioritized above convenience and ease of drop off and pick up. I am asking that all of our community members be patient in the days ahead as we implement these procedures.
Effective immediately please adhere to the following changes:
Breakfast Drop Off
Curbside drop off at Main Entrance on 21st Road-Please be aware this door will also be used for bus students- be patient and courteous!
The main entrance will continue to be used for late arrival.
Pre-K and ALL K classes enter through doors at Exit 12
Grades 1-5 classes will enter through the Cove Doors
Drop off for grade 1-2 will be on 21st Avenue
Drop off for grade 3-5 will be on 163rd Street
A staff member will be posted on the sidewalk and in the cove area to direct children and an additional staff member will be at the door itself.
Late students of all grades including Pre-K will enter to main entrance and school staff will escort them to their classrooms. Adults will NOT be permitted into the building to escort students to their classrooms.
Pre-K and ALL K classes will dismiss at Exit 12
Grade 1 and 5 will dismiss at main entrance
Grade 1 will walk to the right of the school doors at 2:25PM
Grade 5 will walk to the left of the school doors at 2:30PM
Grade 2-4 will dismiss at the cove as usual.
In addition to these changes, I would like to remind you of the safety procedures that are in place at P.S. 184Q. Photo ID is required at security when you sign in. Security will not allow anyone to enter without Photo ID. Additionally, only parents guardians, and family members of our own students or previously scheduled guests will be allowed into the building. It is highly recommended that you call the main office before visiting if you have an unexpected reason to enter.
