Principal’s Letter

In this last week of June, we are pausing to salute all the students who are graduating and moving up to new schools in September. The many smiles of our student’s faces can lighten up the room and in this case, a computer screen. Although we haven’t been able to celebrate in person this year, the online ceremonies have been beautiful. Congratulations to all of our P255Q graduates!

School year 2019/2020 will not be a year anyone will soon forget. A crisis occurred and too many members of the 255Q community were significantly affected by COVID-19.

During the last three months, we all adjusted to the remote learning platform. It has presented us all with many challenges, but overwhelmingly our school community has remained connected as we developed our virtual learning classrooms. I am very proud of our response during this difficult time. We will continue to enhance remote learning as we begin the summer program. Please continue to check your emails and the Remind app for updated and new information. If you are not connected, please send an email to Neckert2@schools.nyc.gov.

For the 350 families participating in summer school, note the following information:

  • Thursday, July 2 – First Instructional Day
  • Friday, July 3 – Independence Day Observed-No school
  • Friday, July 31 – Eid al Adha Observed-No school
  • Thursday, August 13 -Last Instructional Day

I wish all of you a prosperous and healthy summer.

Gregg Lopez
