Learning Bridges Programs Survey - Child Care Needs

As the New York City Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and early childhood programs will operate on a blended learning model. This means that each week, students will have some school days in person, and some school days remotely.  Learning Bridges is a new program that will provide free child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade on days when they are scheduled for remote learning. If you are interested in the Learning Bridges program, please complete this survey at schools.nyc.gov/learningbridges .

The Learning Bridges programs will:

  • Be operated by community-based organizations and other partners
  • Provide opportunities for children to connect to their remote learning activities
  • Include time for art, recreation, and other age-appropriate activities
  • Follow the same rigorous health and safety precautions as schools

You can complete the survey even if you do not yet know your child’s school schedule. The survey is meant to assess interest; this is not a formal application. More information will be shared by the Department of Education (children in 3-K and pre-K) or the Department of Youth & Community Development (children in grades K-8) about a potential placement in the coming weeks. Programs will become available on a rolling basis beginning at the start of school.   

You can also call 311 for support in completing the survey.

THE POLICE OFFICER ROCCO LAURIE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT

THE POLICE OFFICER ROCCO LAURIE SCHOOL 

IS DEDICATED TO EMPOWERING, EDUCATING, AND ENLIGHTENING OUR FUTURE STUDENT LEADERS TO BECOME STRONG GLOBAL CITIZENS BY INSPIRING A LOVE OF LEARNING, EMBRACING THE FULL RICHNESS AND DIVERSITY OF OUR COMMUNITY, AND NURTURING THEIR SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING.

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!
