 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

Dear Families and Staff:  

This is a follow up to my December 19 letter outlining the additional measures the New York City Department of Education (DOE) is taking to ensure that the water in New York City schools is safe for students and staff.

On December 23, 2016, every potential source of water for drinking or preparing food at I.S. 27 - Staten Island (I.S. 027 Anning S. Prall, 11 Clove Lake Place Staten Island, NY 10310) was tested for lead. The laboratory results showed elevated levels of lead in 53 of the 150 samples of water taken and tested from outlets in the building. A more detailed letter related to the testing for lead at I.S. 27 - Staten Island is attached and complete test results are posted on the DOE website. In any building where lead test results show even one water outlet above the action level of 15 parts per billion, the DOE will implement its standard response protocol, under which it removes any such outlet from service, flushes all or part of the system to eliminate water sitting in pipes overnight, replaces equipment and re-tests after the equipment is replaced.

Each affected fixture at I.S. 27 - Staten Island will remain out of service until it is remediated and future testing shows that the water does not have an elevated level of lead. The custodial staff will also continue to flush the I.S. 27 - Staten Island water systems on Monday mornings before school starts in order to eliminate water that has been stagnant in pipes over the weekend and to ensure safe drinking water is available for students and staff. Please visit http://schools.nyc.gov/AboutUs/schools/watersafety.htm to learn more about the robust protocol we use to ensure the safety of drinking water in each and every school, as well as to look up water test results for their child’s school. We will keep you updated on the remediation work at I.S. 27 - Staten Island, and thank you for your patience and support.

Sincerely yours,

Elizabeth A. Rose

2017 Summer Reading Tasks-DUE SEPT 13, 2017

IS27's Cell Phone Policy

1. During the school day (from the time a student arrives in school, until the end of school) the cell phone must be turned off and cannot be visible.
2. While students are riding DOE buses the cell phone policy is in effect just as if the student was in a classroom during the school day.
3. The only reasons for school personnel to ask a student to surrender a cell phone would be:  
a - if the cell phone rang or vibrated (which would mean that the phone was turned on), or    
b - if the teacher saw the cell phone (which would mean that the phone was visible).
4. If a student is found to be in violation of the cell phone policy the following protocol will be followed:  cell phone policy-3-17-2017.pdf
