Teachers and most staff return to school on Tuesday, September 8th. The first day for students is Wednesday, September 9th, 8:15 AM. Students will go to the cafeteria, pick up programs and proceed to class which starts at 8:30. Students will receive a Metrocard during their lunch period in the cafeteria. The school building opens each day at 7:40 and free breakfast is available to all.
What’s New This Year:
· The regular school day will be 8:30-2:50.
· The first Parent Evening is Wednesday, September 30th, 5:30-8:00. Please mark your calendar.
· Teachers will do family outreach on Wednesdays 3:00-3:50 PM. Please make sure we have updated phone numbers and emails. This is the time that we will call or email you about attendance and other issues. We will also invite you into school during this time to speak with teacher teams. You will continue to receive calls at other times and we aspire to see you at a time convenient to you.
Richard R. Green Physical Education uniforms (T shirts and shorts) will be available from PE teachers in September and should be purchased within the first week of school. The cost is $10 for T shirts and $15 for shorts. Later in the year, when the weather is cooler, students will be able to buy sweat shirts and sweat pants. We accept money orders, cash and checks. PE credit will not be awarded to students who do not have uniforms. Let us know if you have a financial hardship.
Each student must bring a ring binder with loose leaf paper and subject dividers, pens, and pencils. Teachers will let students know if any other school supplies are needed for their classes.
