All students who attend Department of Education schools are entitled to FREE breakfast and lunch. A lunch form however, is required to be filled out from each family, this determines our funding for Title I.

School Nurse Margie can be contacted at 718.981.5034 option 3.
If your child has any type of allergy, Nurse Margie and the classroom teacher must have a note from you and your physician. We must be notified of any medical problems in writing - copes to the classroom teacher, Principal and Nurse Margie. If a student becomes ill or is involved in an accident during the school day, Nurse Margie in conjunction with the school administrator will determine if the child should be sent home and will contact the parent/guardian. Failure to reach parent/guardian will result in a call to an alternative person listed on the Emergency Contact Form.

Changes in Dismissal
Early Dismissal – No Early Sign-Out Policy
A letter must be sent in if your child has to leave early by 12:00 p.m. No changes will be made after that time.
Here at P. S. 65, we pride ourselves on providing a quality education for our children. We have had an inordinate number of children signed out early for a variety of reasons. We are now starting to enforce a NO EARLY SIGN-OUT POLICY except in dire emergencies. In order to provide uninterrupted lessons we ask that you cooperate with us on this issue.
ALL CHANGES IN DISMISSAL MUST BE MADE IN WRITING. NO EXCEPTIONS.
In the event of an emergency, please follow these steps:
*This will not be done on a daily basis.
