lunch forms - very important

Dear Families,

I know you heard from us just last week, but we have a few more important notes to help you and your child prepare for the start of school.  

Family Income Form

Like all NYC public schools, we provide free breakfast and lunch to all students.  But, we can’t offer free meals without your help.

We need every family to complete the Family Income Form (School Meal Application) by August 1, 2018.  Our free meals and our eligibility for certain types of funding depends on these forms.

  • Use the online application at

  • Put in the state (New York) and our school’s zip code, 10472

  • Complete the application.  


Open Spots in a Free Summer Program

If your child is spending the summer at home, it's good to keep them busy.  The Beacon Program, runs a free summer camp in our school building, at 1300 Boynton, that runs from approximately 9-4 each day.  

If you are interested in enrolling your child for the summer, please fill out this very quick form and someone will reach out with an application.  There are only a few spots, and they will be filled on a first come, first served basis. 


Every student needs to be in uniform on the first day of school (8/20).  Please make sure you purchase your child's uniform as soon as possible.  If you purchase after July 15th, you may not get your uniform in time.

If you need help paying for the uniform, please let us know at, and we can help.
