Dear PS 169 Parents/Guardians,
I am honored to be writing this letter to you as the new interim acting Principal at PS 169. I have spent the last six years as an Assistant Principal in this remarkable community, and I am so excited to be able to step into the role of principal for the 2021-22 school year.
Students are set to return to school on Monday, September 13th, and we are busily working to make PS 169 a safe and secure environment, where your children’s health, emotional well-being, and academic progress are our biggest priorities. We will be sending out more details about arrival, dismissal, and class assignments in the coming days.
While we know that many of you are feeling nervous about the return to school, we strongly believe in the importance of children being in school, in person. I will be hosting a Town Hall on Thursday, September 9th, at 1:30pm on Zoom to review all of the safety measures and other procedures we will have in place this school year. Please use this link to join the Town Hall at that time. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in Spanish and Mandarin, and the meeting will be recorded and shared for families who are unable to attend.
