School Day Schedule
Click for the 2016-2017 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.

Free Microsoft Software
Parents and guardians of a student enrolled in a NYC public school are now able to download Microsoft software from https://studentoffice.net/, at no cost, on up to five of their family’s computers and five of their family’s tablets, smart phones, or other mobile devices.
Free products include:
1. Student’s date of birth AND a parent phone number, or
2. Parent email
The information that you enter to claim the download must match the information on your Blue Card on file with the school. Therefore, it is necessary that ATS have the most up-to-date parent contact information in order for the verification and download process to be successful. If you have trouble claiming the download, you can visit a school’s main office to make any necessary changes to your contact information.
There is no deadline to claim the free software. Families may download the software as long as they have a child enrolled in a NYC public school.
As Office 365 is a Microsoft Cloud product, parents must create a Microsoft Cloud account in order to download the software. The studentoffice.net website contains not only information on how to create an account, download the software, but also answers to “Frequently Asked Questions.” For technical assistance families may contact Microsoft Customer Service at: 1 (800) 642-7676.
