The community of P.224Q continuously develops and refines their educational practices supporting their beliefs that students learn best when: · They are taught through well-planned targeted, and differentiated lessons designed to give all students access to the curriculum and accelerate their learning · When they are presented with learning activities related to a lesson that challenge their thinking and give multiple opportunities for application of material taught · When they are given immediate meaningful feedback and opportunities to self-assess · When they are taught in an environment where they feel safe to learn and take risks to develop their understanding

Letters from Principal Jamie 

Dear Parents,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome your child to summer school 2024. We are committed to providing continuity of services and educational programs as mandated on your child’s IEP to the best of our ability. The following is an overview of policies and procedures that are in effect during summer school. Please keep this information easily available for reference.

Summer School Locations:

· P224@ 186 students will attend PS205Q

· P224@ 205 students will attend PS205Q

· P224@ 314 students will attend PS205Q

· P224@ 266 students will attend PS266Q

· P224@ 26 students will attend PS205Q

· P224@ 710 students will attend P710 site


This summer most of the teaching staff is from the P224 organization (with very few from outside organizations), and teachers will send you a letter to introduce themselves at the beginning of school.


As you know, bussing can often be problematic.  Please get in touch with OPT 718-784-3313 if: 

  • You have any issues with a bus arriving late A.M. or P.M. 

  • You have problems with the driver or matron.  

  • You need to know the location of your child’s bus.  

  • There is a problem with the air conditioning.  


OPT will give you a complaint number and try to correct the problem. The school will not know any of the information you are requesting. We can follow up for you only if you already have a complaint number. 




As we prepare for warmer weather, parents need to note the capacity and limits of school bus air conditioning systems:  Climate control systems on school buses can only cool a vehicle to approximately 15-20 degrees below the outside temperature; therefore, if it is 100 degrees outside, the bus can only be expected to cool to about 80 degrees. For some students who are medically fragile and/or sensitive to temperature changes, it may be in the student’s best interest not to ride the bus on extremely hot days—the decision as to whether a student rides or not will remain with the parent. Check the weather for the day before the bus comes, and if they feel it will be too hot to ride the bus either in the morning or afternoon, they may decide to keep the child home. Please inform the school immediately if you decide to keep your child home.  All bus companies have been given written notification reminding them to ensure all vehicles have functioning vents and cooling systems where required. In addition, students with specific medical needs can be moved closer to the front of the vehicle if that part of the bus is cooler. 

Pick-up and Drop-off Procedures

The school day is from 8:00-2:30. You should have received information from the Office of Pupil Transportation informing you of your child’s bus number and pick-up and drop-off times in your NYCSA. If you are bringing your child to school, you must sign your child in and wait for a staff member to come and bring your child to class. Do not hand your child over to a security guard. You must park your car and bring the child into the building. Do not double park or block driveways. Police will be ticketing cars outside the school buildings this summer. In addition, you are only permitted to enter the building by the main doors where the security guards are present.

If you are picking your child up, please follow the same procedures. Let the school know before 12:00 PM that you are picking up. Then come to the office and sign your child out. All students must be picked up by 2:15 PM. All staff will leave at 2:30 PM, so please leave yourself time for parking and traffic.

Attendance Procedures

Standard Assessment students that received letters must attend summer school. All other students attend voluntarily. However, the purpose of a 12-month school year is to allow students continuous learning, so we encourage every child to take advantage of this program. Once a student comes to school, we are responsible for their attendance. Please continue to contact the school as you did during the year, early in the morning, to let us know if your child will be absent. Otherwise, someone from our school will call and log the reason for the absence. If you plan to keep your child out of school for an extended time for vacation, camp, family emergencies, etc., contact the school as soon as possible for planning purposes.



There will be some trips over the summer. It is imperative that a trip permission slip is filled out for every trip and returned a few days before the date of the trip. We cannot take permission over the phone. A student must have a permission slip signed on the day of the trip to be permitted to go. Students are very disappointed when this happens. If your child needs a trip nurse, you will receive a letter explaining the procedures if a nurse is unavailable.

Car Wash Wednesdays and Water Play

All students will be able to participate in water play each day.  On Wednesdays, we will run a car wash where students will have assigned jobs and raise funds for the café, bakeshop, Cricut room, and fall carnival. 

Contact Numbers

The following are contact numbers for summer:

P224 @ 205Q (718) 464-5776

P224 @ 710 (718) 225-8667

P224 @ 266Q (718) 479-4322

I am confident that we will have a great summer. Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.

Important Message 



  • Students are expected to attend school every day.  

  • 95% attendance is recommended by the P. 224Q Attendance Committee. Good attendance has a high correlation to student success.  

  • Parents are expected to call the school when a student is absent to inform us of the reason. If we do not hear from you, the school will contact your home. 

  • A written note must accompany the child upon his or her return to school, as required by education law.  A doctor’s note can excuse a student from an unauthorized absence.                                         


  • An attendance teacher will be notified if a student is absent for three or more days and we are unable to contact the parent. In addition, after three days you will need to contact the bus company to reinstate pick up. 

  • If a student is going out of town for an extended period you are required to put in writing where the student is going, for how long they will be away and leave a phone number where contact can be made even if it is out of the country.
