IS27 Remote Learning Parent Letter

Dear Prall Families:

We know these current times are stressful, confusing, and unprecedented. To keep our students engaged, learning, and in community with each other during a trying time, we have been working diligently to prepare distance learning resources for all our students. In terms of distance learning, the intention is not to replace the experience a student would have in his or her classroom, but to support them with continued learning, while away from school. 

What you need to do:

  • Students should log into their PupilPath account and look for emails and assignments from their teacher. Should there be an issue with their account email Mr. Genovese immediately. (
  • Once you are logged in, your teacher will provide you with information on how to connect to Google Classroom or how to submit your assignments through PupilPath.
  • Do not panic, we are here to support you every step of the way. If you cannot access an assignment or need assistance, email the teacher through PupilPath and they will respond in a timely manner. Should you need additional assistance, you may contact your child’s Assistant Principal or Ms. Mayo, our parent coordinator.

What you need to know:

  • Please note that the use of a phone, computer, laptop, Ipad, Chromebook or any other compatible device will be suitable for your child to complete their tasks. 
  • If you need WiFi access, Spectrum is offering free WiFi for remote learning. Call 1-844-488-8395 to enroll.
  • As of now, we will not return to school until April 20th
  • Remote learning starts Monday, March 23rd and will continue until April 8th.
  • Upon return, all after school activities and trips are suspended until further notice. Refunds will be issued.
  • We have not made any decisions regarding Arista, Prom, and/or Graduation

If you would like to request to be lent an internet enabled device from the NYC DOE, please complete the survey at: Tech Needs Survey

We hope to see you all soon.

IS27 Student Dress Code

May 2, 2019

 Dear Parents and Guardians:

 We ask all students come to school dressed appropriately for an adult office work environment.  When it is determined that a student’s clothing does not comply with the dress code, you may be asked to change into appropriate clothing before attending class. 

The Principal or the Principal’s designee has the final authority for interpreting whether a student’s apparel conforms to the dress code and is appropriate dress for an adult office work environment. 

Below are some pointers to keep in mind when getting dressed for school. 

  • No pants that fall below the waist
  • No shirts with inappropriate slogans or pictures
  • No low cut or see-through shirts or sweaters
  • No short tops which expose your stomach
  • No short shorts.  All shorts must reach the end of your fingertips.
  • No short skirts.  All skirts must reach the end of your fingertips.
  • No visible undergarments
  • No extremely tight clothing
  • Not sure if it’s appropriate? DON’T WEAR IT!

Violations of the dress code will result in disciplinary action as outlined in the NYC Department of Education Discipline Code

        B09 *Wearing clothing, headgear (e.g., caps or hats), or other items that are unsafe or disruptive to the educational process (A-E only) 

Range of Possible Disciplinary Responses to Be Used in Addition to Guidance Interventions

  1. Admonishment by pedagogical school staff          
  2. Student/teacher conference
  3. Reprimand by appropriate supervisor (e.g., assistant principal, principal)
  4. Parent conference
  5. In-school disciplinary action (e.g., formal restorative conference, detention, exclusion from extracurricular activities, or communal lunchtime) 

Very truly yours, 

Matthew Barone

Memo from Richard A. Carranza Chancellor New York City Department of Education

March 14, 2020

Dear Families:

The health and safety of students at I.S. 27 (31R027) and all 1.1 million students across the city is our top priority. We are committed to ensuring school communities have the information they need on the coronavirus (COVID-19).

We are writing to inform you that the State has confirmed that a member of the I.S. 27 community has a positive test result for COVID-19.

We are handling this situation with the utmost seriousness. At this time, it is important to listen to facts and not respond to fear. We are following all protocols and will continue to keep you updated. Most immediately, we are taking the steps described below.
What Will Happen
• Your school will be cleaned and disinfected over the weekend in accordance with New York State Department of Health guidelines and must be complete before accepting returning students. As a reminder, NYCDOE routinely conducts deep cleanings in schools and programs.
• During this time, the DOE and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) will determine any further next steps that need to be taken.
• We anticipate that we will be able to perform all necessary steps over the weekend, and we anticipate that we will have school open on Monday, March 16, 2020, pending confirmation from DOHMH.
• You will be notified in advance of the reopening time. We will confirm status of school for this upcoming Monday by Sunday, March 15.
What You Should Do
• Don’t panic.
• Educate yourself about COVID-19 through the NYC Health Department’s fact sheet available here (
• While the school building is closed, families and students will be able to access general grade level instructional materials at
• Continue to practice general viral infection prevention measures including: o Wash your hands with soap and water often. o Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing. o Do not touch your face with unwashed hands. o Do not shake hands. Instead, wave or elbow bump. o Monitor your health more closely than usual for cold or flu symptoms. o Get your flu shot – it’s never too late. o Reduce overcrowding by walking or biking to work, if possible. o If the train is too packed, wait for the next one.
• If your child feels sick after school reopens, they should stay home. If parents or other family members
feel sick, we encourage them to stay home.
If You Feel Sick
• Stay home and call your doctor if you have symptoms like coughing, shortness of breath, fever, or sore
• If you do not feel better in 24-48 hours, contact your doctor.
• Do not go to school or to work until you have been fever-free for at least 72 hours without the use of
fever reducing drugs like Tylenol or ibuprofen.
• If you need help finding medical care, call 311.

Please visit at any time for critical updates, including ways to fight stigma and bias around the
coronavirus. It’s important we come together as a city and support one another as neighbors and New Yorkers
during this time.

Nothing matters more than the health and safety of your school community. We will continue to stay in close
touch every step of the way, and will let you know when your school is ready to reopen.

Please do not hesitate to contact Superintendent Vincenza Gallassio at and 718-420-
5657 or call 311 with any questions.

Richard A. Carranza
