General Information

Going Green

In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, we will be uploading many of our notices online. Please make sure you are checking our online platforms on a consistent basis. NYCDOE letters and important AEA permission slips will still be printed and sent home. We appreciate your cooperation as we make this transition.

Also, we are partnering with GrowNYC to implement a more sustainable approach regarding our food scraps, recycle items and garbage during meal times. Students are learning simple steps in caring for our planet.

AEA School Calendars

Monthly AEA School Calendars are uploaded online, please make sure you download and/or print a copy for your reference. You can access our online Google Calendar and digital copies of our AEA School Calendars on our AEA Community Board

NYCDOE Calendar

The NYCDOE has an online calendar, you can find here: NYCDOE 2019-20 Online Calendar 

OR you can also download or print a copy here: NYCDOE 2019-20 Printable Calendar

Remind App

Classroom teachers will be using the Remind App to send quick reminders and updates. Your child's teacher will send home a notice with their Remind "class code". You can either download the app or receive the updates via email or as a text message.

AEA School Website

Our school website will be the main source of information. You can find policies, upcoming events, important information and NYCDOE and AEA links. Please visit it often.

Google Sites

Classroom teachers will be using Google sites which will replace Shutterfly. Teachers will share photos, trip updates, class project details and more via Google sites. We hope this transition will provide a more efficient and centralized method of communicating and receiving information. 

Welcome Back Packet

During the first week of school, students receive a Welcome Packet. This packet includes a Welcome Letter, important notices from the NYCDOE and AEA administration, Emergency Blue Cards, a School Compact and NYCDOE Calendar. If you need additional copies, please email Jainnie Hackman to receive a digital copy. We appreciate your prompt return of tear offs and blue cards.

AEA Handbook

We are in the process of revising our AEA Family Handbook. We will send a notice to our families once the revised handbook is uploaded online. Families are expected to download a copy of the handbook for their reference as we will not be printing and sending home a copy.
