Have a Great summer and keep your brain active!


Dear Parents,


As you are aware our Chancellors Regulations do not allow students to bring any electronic items to school. (This includes cell phones, video games, ipods, etc…) In order to enforce this regulation and keep distractions out of classrooms we are instituting a new policy at IS 126. Every morning during AM homeroom, teachers will be collecting cell phones and locking them away in their classroom. At the end of the day during PM homeroom, all cell phones will be returned. Any child that is picked up early and needs their phone we will go to the room and retrieve the phone. This is similar to how we handle student jackets and other belongings. If a child needs to contact a parent during the day, they have access to phones in the main office as well as other offices in the building.

In order for this policy to work we are expecting 100% cooperation. There will be no exceptions made. If you have any questions, you can contact the school at 718-274-8316.
