Message from the Principal

Dear Students, Parents and Families,

As many of you are aware, the District 8 CEC and the NYCDOE have been busy preparing a proposal for the rezoning of the Throggs Neck area schools.  On December 20, 2017, the CEC will meet at 6:00 pm at PS 93 to vote on the proposal.  I have attached a resource below that explains the rezoning and includes specific information for PK parents and how the rezoning affects registration for Kindergarten.  If you have any questions or would like further information, please speak with our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Veronica Brugman at 718-822-5312, 1081.  If I do not see or speak with you, have a wonderful holiday.  Thank you for your continued support.

Educationally yours,

Ms. Margarita Colón
