Learning Bridges Programs Survey - Fall 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. 

Respect For All

Rules and Policies for Respect for All 

Respect for All Liaison (RFA)- Andrea Gulotta, Guidance Counselor

Sexual Harassment Prevention Liaison (SHP) - Mary Karasinski, Guidance Counselor

Mkarasinski@schools.nyc.gov

Please see the attached letter from Ms. Jackson:    RESPECT FOR ALL

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!

ATTENTION 2020 GRADUATES

We are pleased to finally be able to distribute your Senior Yearbooks.  Additionally, you may drop off any school materials that need to be returned such as technology, textbooks, costumes, instruments. etc.  Please have your child's name and ATS class from last year to obtain your yearbook.

Please call the school at 718-698-5757 to schedule an appointment to pick up a yearbook.

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. 

Please visit SIlive's website below for coverage of the event.
