EDUCATION SECRETARY ARNE DUNCAN NAMES PS 150 2014 NATIONAL BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL

 

Dear P.S. 150 Families,

I am very honored to announce that at 1:30 pm today, U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, designated P.S. 150 as one of 337 National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2014.

The school was originally nominated by our school network last November.  In order to follow through with the nomination, there was a lengthy application process, and it was completed and submitted for consideration last December.  It has been a long road, with much nail biting and anticipation, but the effort paid off!  Thank you to the entire community for your support, love and encouragement.

Warmly,

Jenny

WE ARE A NUT-FREE SCHOOL

PS 150 is a nut-free school. These restrictions refer to both ground and tree nuts.  We have young students with serious nut allergies, for whom this is a matter of life and death.

Children will be offered cheese sandwiches as an alternative to the hot lunch instead of peanut butter.

If you are sending your child to school with a lunch packed at home, please do not include any food items with nuts.  This includes salted peanuts, peanut butter sandwiches, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter granola bars, foods cooked in peanut oil and all tree nut and tree nut-derived products.

In addition, if your child eats peanuts or peanut-based products as part of his/her breakfast, please make sure his/her hands are washed thoroughly before coming to school and there are no crumbs on his/her clothing.

It isn't easy being green
Please help us by discarding all trash in the appropriate receptacles.  We have blue bins for metal, glass and plastic, grey bins for paper and regular cans for all non recyclable garbage.  Thank you.

The Department of Education is committed to ensuring that you have a meaningful opportunity to participate in and have access to programs and services critical to your child's education.  The Department of Education provides translation and interpretation services that will assist you in communicating effectively with your child's school.  Information about your rights regarding translation and interpretation services is available in the main office of this school.
