Principal’s Message

Hello 121 Families!
NYCSA Accounts
The DOE is moving away from paper and more toward “online” communication.  Lots of communication from both the DOE Central Offices and from PS/IS 121 will take place through the NYCSA account this year.  PLEASE make sure to check in with Ms. Ottombrino ([email protected]), our Parent Coordinator, if you have any issues accessing account.  ___________________________________________________________________________________________
BLUE Card Reminder
Please add anyone who will be picking up your child to the child’s blue card at the start of the year!  
We hate to have to bother you about it, but making sure every child gets home safely at the end of each day is our #1 priority.
