Important Message From Mrs. Latto


September 4, 2014

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the start of another exciting school year here at P.S. 41.  I hope you had an enjoyable summer.

Back in June I sent home a letter that outlined a few very important changes here at the school and I would like to remind you of what those changes are.  As a result of the new NYC teacher’s contract, our school hours have officially changed.  All of the schools in the city were required to have start times no earlier than 8:00 AM and no later than 8:20 AM.  (Some schools already had an 8:20 AM time and therefore there was no need for them to change.)

Every day, Monday through Friday, school hours are 8:00 AM to 2:20 PM. 

• Students in grades K-2 should report to the auditorium at 7:50 AM

• Students in grades 3-5 should report to the cold lunchroom at 7:50 AM

• Breakfast (which is free for all students) will be served in the hot lunchroom at 7:30 AM

We do not offer supervision of students or school security any earlier than 7:30 AM, so please be mindful of that when you drop your children off.

I am planning on recreating some form of the extended day program which served the needs of some of our students. This program will likely take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2:20 PM to 3:20 PM and will differ from any previous extended day program your child may have attended.  I will reach out as soon as I have further details to share.  Unfortunately, busing will not be provided.

Also, I conducted meetings with all of my teachers in June to determine which students could benefit from academic intervention services or acceleration. All recommendations are based on a variety of assessments that were administered throughout the 2013-2014 school year.  We will offer:

• AIS (academic intervention services) in math and/or literacy.

• Acceleration classes in math and/or literacy.

• Apprentice program, which is our small group enrichment program.

If there are any questions I can be reached at 718-423-8333 or through email at . As always, I look forward to another great year of learning here at P.S. 41Q.


Sari Latto
