UPK registration

Parents of Nursery students from OLG who graduated in June should either have been contacted by DOE or will be contacted soon.

Parents with UPK-eligible children, who did not attend Nursery here, who would like to enroll in the PreK program being held at this site should visit https://maps.nyc.gov/upk/ and click the "Call Me" button to have a representative contact you.

Or, call 212-637-8000 to speak directly to someone at the Department of Ed. The proper name is "PreK Center at 385 Avenue W" and the program code is 21Z077.

Please keep in mind that although PreK is being held at our site, it is not being conducted by Our Lady of Grace. Therefore all registration has to go through the Dept. of Education, and PreK students will follow the public school calendar.

Thank you for your continued patience with this process.

UPK registration update

Just - graduated Nursery students:

Just got off the phone with Diocese and DOE. The final word is:
-UPK is definitely 100% happening in September at our site.
-All of our just-graduated Nursery students definitely 100% have a seat there.
-I have re-forwarded our student contact information to DOE and you should be getting a phone call from Brian Fritch's office in the next few days to have them take you through the registration process individually.
-It is going to be an alternative registration process so you do not have to register through the website.

If you do not hear from them by Tuesday, let me know. I will be at a reading conference in Boston but will of course have access to email at olgie385@aol.com

Breathe easy and have a good night.
~~~Mrs. Sarno

Nursery parents trying to register for UPK

I am aware of the issue with the (non)listing of our site on the Dept. of Education website.

Although the school is not involved in the listing process, I am in constant contact with the Diocese and the Dept. of Ed to resolve this issue. I have been reassured that our Nursery students still comprise the priority list for the site and will still have first priority when the listing becomes available. Updates will appear here when I receive them. As I am in and out of the office during the summer, the quickest way to communicate with me is via email: olgie385@aol.com. Thank you.

A Note from the Nurse

Dear Parents:

Medical forms were issued to Nursery and Pre-K. They must be returned in September with all highlighted areas filled out.

All students entering 6th grade are required to have a Tdap & V2U#2 vaccines. The forms were sent home with all missing immunizations listed. A proof of immunization must be sent to school in September.

All children who had MAF services last year were issued new forms. If your child requires this service, please send completed forms at the beginning of the school year.

Students are not allowed to bring any medication to school and the Nurse cannot administer any medication without proper paperwork. If your child needs to take meds during school either daily or as necessary, please contact school nurse at 718-375-2081.

Have a great summer!

G. Auranch, OLG Nurse

Band Sign-Up

There is still time to sign up for band if you have not already. Please bring your form in as soon as possible. Stop by the office if you need a new form.

Band will be every Thursday unless otherwise notifed. Don't forget to bring your instrument.

Weekly Reminders

Note to all parents and students: Please be respectful of our neighbors!

-There have been some issues regarding our neighbors. We have received calls asking that we refrain from blocking driveways, sitting on steps, dropping garbage on the sidewalk or street, etc. Please be mindful of our community and taking care of the people and places around us.

-The website is running more smoothly now; however, we are aware that some are still having issues. They are being worked on and in some cases may take a little time to resolve. Thank you for your patience with this slightly bumpy start.

School Handbook

Due to technical difficulties (a stubborn copier!) not all classes were able to receive their paper copies of the handbook today. However, you can still view the handbook by going to the "Parents" button on the top of this page, and clicking on "Parent/Student Handbook". Thank you.

Website Registration

Please re-register on this new site!

Parents and students, if you have not registered on this new site olgbk.org, please take a moment and do that today. Use the tab in the upper right hand corner to begin. You need to do this even if you were already registered on the old site. Thank you.

Our website is under construction!

Please be patient as we improve our web presence to be bigger and better. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please give us a call in the office at 718-375-2081!
