Blue Emergency Cards

Note: Your child needs to arrive to school on the first day day with a completed blue card. We will be mailing each family a blue card before the first day of school.  If you do not receive one, please obtain a blue card upon arrival on the first day of school and submit it to your child's teacher.  

 

Blue cards are to be updated YEARLY.

It is extremely important that the school has the current, correct information for contacting parents, guardians or persons in parental relations, at all times – especially during the school day. It is the responsibility of Parent/Guardian to see that the Blue Emergency Contact Card, which is kept on file in the main office, is completely filled out and to date. Notify the school in writing of any changes so that we can update official Department of Education forms and databases.

 

If your child becomes ill or it is necessary to close school early due to an unforeseen emergency, we will use the Blue Emergency Card contact information to contact you. Be sure that those adults you list on the Emergency Card know that they have been listed.

If there is a significant change (i.e. an address or name change) please contact Ms. Therese Reyes (718) 429-5700  to have this information updated in the system. You will need to bring in proof of address for any address changes.
