School Day Schedule
Click for the 2017-2018 general school calendar.
Back to school basics from the NYC DOE can be found here.
The school day will begin at 8:40AM and end at 3:00PM every day. Early Academy will take place on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Early Academy, however, will be structured differently. Teachers of humanities, languages and the arts will be seeing students one day and teachers of math and science the other day. Individual teachers will talk about how they plan to use Early Academy during Back-To-School Night in the fall.
The teachers also voted to lengthen the November and March Parent Conferences instead of having a third set in May.
MS54 Cell Phone Policy
Cell phones must be turned off before entering the school. They should be put away at the start of your day so they are neither seen nor heard. In the event that such devices are seen or heard, they will be confiscated. Confiscated devices must be picked up by a parent or guardian. Parents must contact the Dean to make arrangements to pick them up.
Please note that the use of these items is not permitted in the school yard during lunch, in the cafeteria during breakfast, and during Early Academy.
