Safety Conference October 8th Hunter College Campus Schools

Screen Shot 2014-09-24 at 1.44.11 PMParents are invited to join representatives from local precincts, the NYPD’s School Safety Division and other invited guests to discuss conditions concerning the safety of your children, school, and community and share solutions.

Click here to register and learn more:

RSVP to SUN’s free Oct.8th Safety Conference with the NYPD-space is
limited, registration required <>

Time: 8:30-10:30 am
Location: Hunter College Campus Schools 71 East 94th Street (Madison
Avenue) NY, NY

This conference, which will include break out sessions with members of your individual precinct, will focus on:

  • Incident reports received through the Schools Unite Network (SUN) from parents, youth, school staff and others. Please send any incidents you would like discussed at the conference, anonymously, if you wish to
  • Sharing solutions and best practices to help prevent and address safety concerns, including bullying, robberies, and area hotspots based upon information received by SUN
  • Helping determine how to allocate resources most effectively based on information shared by you and others which may also require updating SUN’s online safety maps- with locations and schedules of parent patrols, crossing guards and police-patrolled safe corridors

..And meet the NEW Commanding Officer of the Upper East Side’s 19th Precinct, Deputy Inspector Grant and get to know other leaders in the NYPD in Manhattan North who work to help keep your children and neighborhood safe.

An important adjunct to SUN’s technology-based platform, SUN conferences enable your school and parents to foster closer relationships with local law enforcement, by providing parents and security personnel with face-to face exchanges with police.

We recommend that each school designate two parent safety representatives to attend the conferences and act as liaisons between the Schools Unite Network and their school. There is no charge to attend this conference.

Our thanks to Hunter College Campus Schools for hosting this event!

Help stop viruses from spreading at school

Screen Shot 2013-10-21 at 12.00.27 PM

Back-to-school season coincides with an increase in the viruses that can cause fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and breathing problems. These include noroviruses (commonly known as the stomach flu), influenza (commonly known as the common cold), and enteroviruses (mild to severe respiratory illness). 

Please encourage students to take the following simple actions that can help stop viruses from spreading at school:

  • Students should wash hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. In general, students should wash hands after arriving at school, before touching food, after using the bathroom, after coughing or sneezing, and after coming in from outside. Please work with your staff to ensure that soap and paper towels are available and note that alcohol-based sanitizers are not as effective against viruses as soap and water.
  • Students should over coughs and sneezes with a tissue or shirt sleeve, not with their hands.
  • Students who are sick should stay home to reduce the risk that others will get sick as well. Children with fever, vomiting, or diarrhea should stay home until the symptoms are gone or until a doctor indicates that it is appropriate to return. Children who develop breathing problems should stay home until cough symptoms are gone. 
  • Students should get vaccinated against the flu.

For more detailed information, see these guides about noroviruses, influenza, the City’s guide to enterovirus, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guide to enterovirus.

For questions, contact your school nurse.


Morning Drop Off

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 12.48.12 AMDear Lower Lab Families,

Morning arrival is in full swing however the administration and staff are experiencing a bit of congestion at the door from 8:00-8:15. Please follow the  guidelines below to expedite arrivals.

  • Students may enter beginning at 8:00AM.
  •  Kindergarten and 1st Grade Families: In order to eliminate congestion, adults must remain outside and children will enter the threshold independently and proceed to their line spots. (The staff and administration at the door will assist students and the morning greeters will escort children upstairs.)
  • “Goodbye kisses and hugs” on the sidewalk please,  not right in front of the doorway!
  • Safety First!  Remind your children that once they enter the building they must not try to exit.  If they have forgotten something (backpack, violin, lunch) children should approach  and alert a staff member at the door. A staff member will exit the building and find the departing parent to retrieve missing items.
  • Please make an effort to be on-time.  Teachers are collecting their classes from the auditorium at exactly 8:15.  There are several students who are consistantly arriving after 8:15.
  • If an adult must enter the building for school related business, please have a photo ID available for the security agent.

Thank You for your continued support!
