What do I do if my child will be missing school?

To learn how to report an absence, click here.

To pick your child up early, parents and caregivers must come to the main office, room 204, to sign them out. Please also let their teacher know in advance.

I lost my yellow security card, how can I get a new one?

Each MNS family should have received 3 yellow cards at the beginning of the year. Unfortunately we cannot replace any that are lost so please take good care of your cards.

Please contact Batcheva at BWinokur@ps290.org if you haven't received your three (3) cards. 

How can I get in touch with my child's teacher, any of the staff members, or the principal?

Please click here for our staff directory.


Keep in mind, when meeting with anyone here at school, you must first come to the main office, room 204 to sign in. Never go directly to the classroom. Thank you for your cooperation!
