Family Notice: MTA construction on Gravesend Neck Road


Dear Families

Due to MTA construction on Gravesend Neck Road and McDonald Avenue the following changes have been made to our dismissal routine, beginning today, until the construction job has been completed.  The MTA construction project is scheduled to be completed  on Friday, February 3, 2023.  Please plan accordingly.   Gravesend Neck Road will be closed due to construction after 8am.  Cars and buses will not be permitted to drive down Gravesend Neck Road.  At dismissal time buses will be rerouted to Van Sicklen Street.  Bus students will exit from the Lama Court exit doors on Van Sicklen Street to load onto their buses.  All middle school students will be dismissed from the Gravesend Neck Road doors.   All students in grades K-5 will continue to be dismissed at their assigned locations.    An additional notice will be sent home to notify families when we will transition back to our original dismissal procedures.  If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Acting Parent Coordinator, Ms. Lushe Duka.  I thank you for your patience and understanding during this two week period.

Working Together, SOARing to Success!
