N.Y.S ELA EXAM March 28-30

March 24, 2017

Dear Parents or Guardians:

The 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will take the NYS ELA Exams on Tuesday, March 28th, Wednesday, March 29th and Thursday, March 30th.
The 6th, 7th and 8th grade students will take the NYS Math Exams on Tuesday, May 2nd, Wednesday, May 3rd, and Thursday, May 4th.
New York State and New York City Assessment regulations require that no student, teacher or other staff member may have a cell phone on their person during the testing period. This mandate is necessary for security reasons. To facilitate compliance all students will be required to shut off their phones and place their phones in their book bags. All student book bags will be placed in the front of the room during the testing period.

The teachers have worked very hard to prepare our students for this test. Please stress the importance of the examination to your child.

Test Preparation Hints
1. Get a good night’s sleep.
2. Be at school by 7:20 am.
3. Eat a well-balanced breakfast (a free breakfast is provided at school at 7:20 am for all students)
4. Bring two sharpened #2 pencils.
5. Read all parts of the test.
6. Stay focused.

Very truly yours,

Matthew Barone

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

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

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff,

The safety and well-being of all students and staff members at I.S. 27 remains our highest priority.  Towards that end, we are informing you about an incident that took place today during which no one was hurt.

This morning, an online threat against the school was brought to our attention.  NYPD was called and our school building was evacuated for approximately 30 minutes.  After NYPD investigated and informed us that the building was safe and there was no threat, the evacuation was lifted and we returned to our normal operations.

We assure you that every precaution was taken and will continue to be taken to ensure the safety of our students and staff.  All regular schedules have resumed.  I want to thank all students and staff who cooperated during this soft lockdown. We are proud of the professionalism and orderly fashion everyone displayed.

 We look forward to your continued partnership as we work together to ensure that

I.S. 27 continues to provide the best and safest learning environment possible for all of its students and staff.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Barone at 718-981-8800.


 Sincerely yours,

 Matthew Barone
