  • Get Vaccinated! If your student is aged 5-11, they can now receive a free COVID-19 vaccine at P.S. 59! November 9,2021 from 12pm-4pm.

    Dear Families,

                            As you might be aware, all New Yorkers age 5 and older can now receive a free COVID-19 vaccine. This is great news for the health and safety of your child, your family, your school community, and the whole city!
      In partnership with the City’s vaccination effort, some school sites are offering the first dose of Pfizer vaccinations to eligible students ages 5-11 for one day during the month of November to make it as easy as possible to stay safe.

    No appointment is needed, and you can learn more about your site’s date and hours from your school or by visiting schools.nyc.gov/covid19.

    Getting your child vaccinated is safe, confidential, and easy. Here’s what you need to know:

    In partnership with the City’s vaccination effort, some school sites are offering the first dose of Pfizer vaccinations to eligible students ages 5-11 during the month of November. No appointment is needed, you can simply walk in with your student on the day of your school’s pop-up vaccine site. It's quick and easy, and will help keep your student, your family, and your school community safe.

    Important Information

    • Students ages 5-11 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, or by an adult designated by the parent or guardian, while receiving their vaccine. If the student is accompanied by an adult who is not the parent or guardian, the vaccine provider must obtain verbal consent from the parent or guardian by phone at the time of vaccination. 
    • You will not need to provide proof of immigration status or a social security number to get vaccinated.
    • You do not need health insurance to get vaccinated—the vaccine is free.
    • All records and information associated with vaccination are kept strictly confidential.
    • Vaccines are administered by trained medical professionals.
    • On-site telephone interpretation in multiple languages will be available.
    • You are encouraged to record your student’s vaccination status in the DOE's COVID-19 Vaccination Portal(Open external link).
    • If you, your student age 12 and up, or someone else you know is still in need of a vaccine, you can visit vaccinefinder.nyc.gov(Open external link) today to choose from hundreds of sites across the city offering appointments or walk-up vaccines at no cost.

  • Attendance Reminder September 2021

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

    Our goal every school year is to ensure that every student attends school regularly.

    Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and in life.

    We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. But, we also know that when students miss too much school— regardless of the reason – it can cause them to fall behind academically. Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent—which means missing 18 or more days over the course of an entire school year. Research shows:

    • Children chronically absent in kindergarten and 1st grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade.
    • By 6th grade, chronic absence is a proven early warning sign for students at risk for dropping out of school.
    • By 9th grade, good attendance can predict graduation rates even better than 8th grade test scores.

    Absences can add up quickly. A child is chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month!

    Clearly, going to school regularly matters!

    We do not want your child to fall behind in school and get discouraged. Please ensure that your child attends school every day and arrives on time. Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:

    • Make sure your children keeps a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
    • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
    • Ensure your students go to school every day unless they are truly sick
    • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
    • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your children feel anxious about going to school.
    • Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your child to school.

    We want to motivate and reward your students for good attendance. We will start our Attendance Hero’s Awards again beginning on October 29, 2021. We will look at student attendance each month. If your student comes to school on time, every day, with no absence or tardy within the month, they will receive an Attendance Hero Certificate as well as Five Leadership Bucks that they can use to shop with at the P.S 59 Leadership Store. They will also have their name displayed in recognition of their achievement on the attendance board outside of the main office.

    Let us know how we can best support you and your children so that they can show up for school on time every day. We want your child to be successful in school! If you have any questions or need more information please contact the main office at 718-584-4730.

    Thank You,

    The Attendance Team
