From The Principal

  

July 24, 2017

Dear I.S. 131 Family Members:

Thank you for choosing I.S. 131, Albert Einstein Intermediate School – Together In Excellence – Achieving Greatness! We are so pleased and excited to welcome you to our school community. We would like to take this opportunity to share how excited we are to begin our new endeavor with the students, parents, and staff of I.S. 131, and remind you of some important facts about the upcoming school year.

The doors will open at 8:10 for morning entry. On the first day of school, Thursday, September 7, 2017, the Sixth Grade students will enter through the main lobby and exit through either Exit 9 or Exit 11 on Underhill Avenue. All students, who would like to take advantage of our “Grab & Go” breakfast, will enter through Exit 11 while all other students will enter through Exit 9. Dismissal will be at 2:30 pm every day onto Underhill Avenue.

We will be holding a “Meet the Teachers” Orientation Program on Tuesday, September 26th from 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm.

We are One School and thus our dress code will be reflecting this change. All students are to wear Royal Blue Collared Shirts and Black or Beige Khaki Pants. School shirts will be on sale at the beginning of the school year.

We would like to remind families that middle school is a time of change. The workload and social adjustments are greater here than at the elementary level. Therefore, we expect all students to attend school regularly, complete all assignments, behave appropriately, and adhere to the school dress code. You will be receiving additional information regarding our communication systems (Skedula.com Parent Portal and is131.org) and how they will be utilized to communicate with teachers as well as monitor your child’s academic progress.

Our students were given a Summer Reading Assignment Packet which will be due on Thursday, September 7th. This will count as a Task grade for ELA. Please stop by the school if your child did not receive their materials.

This year we will be using the CASS system to assist with our daily attendance. Each student will be issued an ID card by October 2nd . Each student will swipe their card upon entry into the building. Further information will be sent home at a later time.

In addition, state law now mandates that every child of school age must obtain the necessary immunizations. Any child who has not begun the immunization process by the first day of school will be considered out of compliance. Please contact your community health center, or if you prefer, your family health care provider to help with the process.

Also, in an effort to meet your needs and encourage ongoing communication we have established a school website www.is131.org to provide important information about scheduled activities. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us at 718-991-7490.  We look forward to working with you to ensure the quality of your child’s education and success.

We’ll see your children on September 7th and we hope to see you on September 26th!

 

Sincerely,

Monique Mason

Principal
