Welcome to the 2022-23 School Year!

August 2022

Dear P.S. 62Q Families:

I hope this letter finds you all well. It is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to PS 62, The Magnet School for Computer Science and Innovation for the 2022-23 school year.

As we wind down from the summer and begin to think about the new school year there are certain dates and things you will need to be aware of so your child(ren) will transition smoothly when instruction begins. In the coming days you will receive via Operoo information regarding your child’s new class.

Our hybrid virtual and in person Town Hall will take place on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at 5:00 pm. If attending in person, all visitors must provide identification and proof of COVID-19 vaccination. The Zoom link if you would like to participate remotely is: Join The Town Hall Here!

Early arrival at school for breakfast will begin at 7:20am. Classes begin for all students at 8:00 am daily and we will open the entrance doors at 7:50am. Dismissal times will begin with PreK-2nd grade at  2:15 pm and grades 3-5 at 2:20 pm.

The first instructional day for all students is Thursday, September 8, 2022.

This year there will be construction and improvements in the back of the school playground areas starting mid September which will impact arrivals and dismissals at a later date. We will be sure to update you in advance once these changes to arrivals and dismissals are made.

The Families/Teacher conferences will occur the week of September 19th. Please be sure to login to our teachers Remind Application so they can communicate with you as to the times and dates.

We also would like to welcome our families to come in and explore our new Family Connection Center and meet our Parent Coordinator Jisel Guzman. We provide many supports, especially those who may be new to our community.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and we look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Very truly yours,
