Our PS 39 Family Handbook is a helpful resource that was created jointly by the school and Parent Association to help parents with commonly asked questions about policies, procedures and events. The 2013-14 handbook is available in pdf format HERE. It can also always be found in the "Publications Archive" tab at the top of this page. Families that wish to have a paper version of this document provided by the school can request one from our Parent Coordinator.
