The Bus and Metro Card INFO – Please Read!!!!

Dear Lower Lab Families,

  • We are aware that there have been bus issues over the last few weeks. We appreciate your patience as OPT adjusts the bus routes. The administration is fully aware of everyone’s concerns.  Until all the stops are in place and there is a consistency with ridership / service we appreciate everyone’s support. We feel that most issues have been addressed and hope that any remaining bus issues will be resolved in the next week.
  • We request that all Bus/Metro-Card Families read the following information.  This is important information that may effect your child’s eligibility or Metro Card Fares. These changes will only effect students in grades 3-5. If this pertains to your child the main office will contact you directly as these particular changes will be put into place by January 1st.  (Flyer Version of Post) 
Once again thanks for your continued support.

Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 3.11.51 PMDear Lower Lab Families,

Lets keep the participation numbers up this year for our annual fundraiser and this amazing cause!

Lower Lab has been participating in the Ronald McDonald FUN RUN for 10 years!

Keep an eye out for our registration packets but until then here is more info about the RUN!

On Saturday, November 7, 2015, at 9:00 am, children ages 4–17 are invited to participate in the 17th Annual Ronald McDonald House Kids Charity Fun Run to benefit Ronald McDonald House New York. This is a great opportunity for kids to have fun and raise money for an important cause. The mission of Ronald McDonald House is unique: We provide temporary housing for children who have been diagnosed with cancer, and their families, while the children receive treatment at New York’s renowned medical centers. In our 35 years of service, more than 30,000 children from all 50 states and 70 countries around the world have called the House their “home away from home.”

Firefighters will line the course. All participants will receive a T-shirt and running number when they enter. Upon finishing the race, there will be finishing ribbons and snacks. Watch the video.
