UAU AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM AT I.S. 72 2018/2019

 

UAU will be registering students for their after school program on August 27, 2019 from 9 am -1 pm.

Please note that seats are limited and acceptance is on a first come, first served basis.  Only completed applications (including updated medical) will be accepted.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Egan at:

 Thomas J. Egan

Application form can be found here:  UAU APPLICATION 2019.pdf 

As you may have noticed, parking around I.S. 72 can be something of a challenge.
However, at no time is it acceptable to park your vehicle on private property.  This includes but is not limited to the church across the street on Saxon Avenue or the private residences around the school. Nor is it acceptable to park in the bus slots.
Also, please do not indulge in reckless practices such as backing up onto Ferndale Avenue from Saxon Avenue in order to drop a student off at the main entrance.  If it is necessary to drop your student directly in front of the school, please come up Ferndale Avenue from Travis Avenue, as Ferndale is a one way street. 

The safety of our students, staff, and  the community is of the utmost importance!

Thank you for your cooperation!

MONUMENT DEDICATION

November 14, 2019  was a very special day for our school, as we dedicated a monument to our namesake, Police Officer Rocco Laurie, and former School Safety Agent, Detective Rafael Ramos. Two of our students, sisters Sarah and Sophie Shapiro's artwork can be seen on this beautiful monument that now stands proudly outside the main entry of our school. Thank you to the students, staff, community members, and NYPD involved in the ceremony. I hope you always look upon this monument with pride, knowing that we made a little piece of history today and contributed to the legacy of our amazing school.
