Communicating with Your Child's Teacher
There are several scheduled opportunities that you will have throughout the school year to meet and discuss your child's progress, including fall and spring conference days.
If there is something you wish to discuss with your child's teacher outside of these scheduled times, please send a note in your child's folder or an email to your child's teacher requesting a time to meet. Email addresses for all staff members are available on in our staff directory.
If the teacher doesn’t respond to your note promptly, please leave a phone message for the teacher in the main office. If you still need assistance reaching the teacher then contact the PS 39 Parent Coordinator (347-563-5460 or 718-330-9310) who will help to arrange a mutually acceptable time for a meeting between you and your child’s teacher.
All visitors, including parents, must stop at the security desk inside the main entrance, present photo ID, sign the visitor log book and state their destination. Visitors will receive a pass for their destination from the School Safety Agent, Agent Bruno, and proceed to the Main Office. All visitors will be asked to exit via the main entrance in the basement. The school safety agent will log the time that each visitor exits the building.
School Nurse & Medication
A full-time Department of Health nurse is located in room 300B. If a child is ill or injured during school hours, he or she will be sent to the nurse’s office. Parent will be contacted anytime a child visit's the school nurse.
Should your child require regular administration of medication, use of an inhaler or epi-pen for emergency use, a parent must complete and submit a Medical Administration Form 504 available from the school nurse. Neither teachers nor the school nurse may dispense any medications unless the student has a “504 form” on file. If your child needs any medication, please speak with the school nurse. If your child has a medical problem such as asthma, please also inform the classroom teacher directly so that s/he will be aware of any medical needs your child might have during the day.
