WHAT'S GOING ON IN OUR SCHOOL

EXCITING THINGS ARE HAPPENING AT 119!
CHECK BACK WEEKLY FOR SCHOOL-WIDE INFORMATION:


Winter Has Arrived ......
-Our school has a UNIFORM policy - make sure your child is sent to school IN UNIFORM each day.
-Winter has arrived, and your child may go outside for recess, so dress them warmly!
Please note the NYC Department of Education Chancellor's guidelines:

Guidelines for Outdoor Play in Cold Weather
All schools
Children benefit from vigorous exercise and should be given the opportunity to play outside whenever possible. Unless it is snowing, there is ice on the playground, or the wind chill factor creates an effective temperature below zero degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius), temperature alone should not be a barrier to outdoor play. You are encouraged to work with your staff to maintain outdoor play periods, and you should take precautions to keep students warm and to ensure that they are appropriately dressed on very cold days. When outdoors, please ensure that your students and staff cover exposed skin, wear warm clothing, and use multiple layers to maintain warmth. For more information, see this guide to staying warm outdoors.
