Dear PS/IS 192 parents/guardians

 

Earlier this spring, the NYC Department of Education announced they would like all students to return to in-person instruction next school year. As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, we understand some of you may have anxiety about sending your child back to the school building. We would like to invite any interested parents/guardians to visit the school to observe our covid-19 health and safety protocols.

Please contact our parent coordinator, Yolanda Fioriello, at yfioriello@schools.nyc.gov or (929) 314-4110 to schedule a visit for Monday, June 14th.

 

Sincerely,

Colby Muscarelle

Principal

Dear PS/IS 192 Families,

We hope this letter finds you well. The NYC DOE is requesting that all families complete this form to identify students with a parent or guardian who is a member of the armed forces on active duty, to help understand the best ways to support these students. Please complete the form by June 18, 2021.

 

Thank you for your time and for your continued support.

 

Sincerely,

Colby Muscarelle

Principal

Operoo

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,


We are excited to inform you, that in collaboration with our Title I Parent Committee, we are
adopting a new system named Operoo. Some people may have already used this system,
previously known as CareMonkey.

The Operoo system makes it very easy for you to respond to field trip, blue cards,
registration, and other consent forms using your mobile phone, tablet or PC. No more
paperwork! No more lost forms or notes found in the bottom of the backpack, no more
concerns about children missing out on information when they are absent.


It will greatly reduce the burden on you to provide information that is repetitive. For
example, it will allow you to keep your or your child’s emergency contact up to date; so you
don’t need to repeat this information again whilst your child is at P.S./I. S. 192 It also keep
you informed of all form requests, events, important dates, registration and backpack
letters.


We do need a valid email address or cell phone number from you in order to use the
Operoo system. Please share those details with us if you haven’t already.


You don’t need to do anything else until you receive an email invitation from us
asking you to sign up for your Operoo account. After that, you’ll receive notifications
whenever there is an electronic form to complete or a letter to view for P.S./I.S. 192.


From P.S./ I.S. 192’s perspective, you or your child’s information will only be visible by the
relevant staff for you or your child and will be managed in accordance with our privacy
policies. Details about Operoo’s security and privacy procedures can be found here:
https://www.operoo.com/terms-policies-security/.


Please feel free to contact our parent coordinator, Yolanda Fioriello, if you have any
questions. You can visit the Operoo website for more information here: www.operoo.com.
There is also a parent introduction page here: https://www.operoo.com/intro-for-parents/.


Sincerely,
Colby Muscarelle
Principal
