Potential change of school hours for next year

Dear PS 41 Family,

Our PS 41 School Leadership Team is going to make a recommendation to me regarding a potential change in start time and dismissal for the 2015-2016 school year.  We would like to have your feedback regarding this change so that we can take the wishes of the majority of parents into consideration. (See attached start and dismissal times flyer.)

To give you some background, in June of 2014, the DOE required all schools to select from start and dismissal times that are noted below. There was a very short period of time to make the decision and at that time I quickly polled the teachers and we decided on 8:00 AM start and 2:20 PM dismissal.

Now that we have the time and also the experience we can make a thoughtful decision.

The three choices are:

  • 8:00 AM  start time  with  2:20 PM dismissal      
  • 8:10 AM  start time with 2:30 PM dismissal      
  • 8:20 AM  start time with 2:40 PM dismissal      

Please note that MS 158, the school that most of our 5th graders will go to next year, has chosen  8:00 AM  to 2:20 PM as their start and dismissal time for the 2015-2016 school year and that may impact the decision of families who have children in both schools.

Please indicate your choice and send this start and dismissal-times flyer back to school by Friday, March 6 so that we may tally your preferences.  If you have any questions please call me at 718-423-8333.


Sari Latto, Principal
