    Welcome to a new school year!  In keeping with the Chancellor’s Homecoming theme, our school has partaken in many activities to foster social-emotional awareness for our students while engaging them in rich, academic instruction.

    Unity Day

    On October 20, 2021, our school celebrated Unity Day.  On this day, individuals, schools, communities, and businesses wear or share orange to unite for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion to prevent students from being bullied. Our school was visited by District 14 Superintendent, Dr. Dixon.  During her visit, Dr. Dixon visited classrooms and interacted with our students.  A special shout-out to our very own Valerie Matias-Robinson from class 503, who gifted Dr. Dixon an orange Unity Dragon scarf. 



    School Construction Authority – Updates

    • Project Scope
    • The overall Project scope, per contract, Roof Replacement and Flood Elimination. Substantial Completion means that all Contractual Project work has been completed.  The work is now at substantial completion.
    • Upcoming Work – Inspection
    • As is required for all projects, to ensure that the work is completed per the contract and to meet Building Codes, there are a series of upcoming inspections by the Construction Inspection Division (CID) and the Department of Building (DOB).
    • These inspection include an inspection to: Roof, Masonry, Plumbing, HVAC system (reinstalled with the roof work) and Power/Light.  Any inspection deficiencies will be fixed.
    • Punch List
    • Also, as part of every project, there are now items to be addressed (Punch List items).
    • These items are not limited to but will include: Addressing additional visible water damage and painting window trims.
    • Geotech Engineer’s Scope of Work:
    • NYCT Drawing Research – Since the project lies within 200 ft. of a New York City subway, NYCT approval prior to any construction related activities is required. We will obtain available drawings from the Transit Authority related to the project at the above-mentioned location.
    • Site Improvements Plan – We will assist the team in the construction document development process addressing the pavement replacement program. We will work with the design team to prepare a Site Improvements Plan for submission to NYCT for review and approval. We will prepare relevant specifications based on the approved final design. 
    • NYCT Coordination – Since the project lies within 200 ft. of a New York City subway, NYCT approval prior to any construction will be required. We will coordinate with the team and NYCT to obtain the necessary approvals. We will submit the drawings designed and prepared by the design team to the NYCT for their review and comment. Based on our previous design experiences, we anticipate that several meetings may be necessary and that revisions to design may be required. We will coordinate and respond to questions and obtain the final approval for the design from NYCT. We have assumed that one submittal and one re-submittal will be required prior to final approval by the NYCT. We will prepare and submit to NYCT to obtain the necessary approval to perform the proposed repaving at the site.
    • Construction Administration - We will provide traditional construction administration services through construction. This work includes submittal review, RFI responses and periodic site visits by project managers. We will perform site visits when necessary to resolve a specific question that involves design intent.
