PS 56 is now a POS lunch system school. Please visit MyLunchMoney Customer Service at (800) 479-3531.
Families can complete the school meals application online. Regardless whether students will be eating hot lunch, all parents and guardians are required to submit one form for all their children attending any NYC DOE school. The online application is easy and will be sent electronically to SchoolFood and when processed the eligibility status will be sent to the school database, usually within 24 hours of receipt. We encourage households to use their computers at home, at libraries or their smart phones and go to nyc.applyforlunch.com and complete the online form.
If you have any meal eligibility questions, please contact the Office of SchoolFood Help Desk at (877) 363-6325 or email email@example.com

Goals for 2012-2013
All students K-5, will experience four Common Core-aligned units of study: two in math and two aligned to the literacy standards in ELA, social studies, and/or science.
We will strengthen the common language and understanding of what quality teaching looks like by deepening the school community’s comprehension of Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching.
For Grades K-5, general education teachers will use guidance from the NYCDOE to review and modify the scope and sequence of MATH instruction.
For Grades K-5, general education teachers will use guidance from the NYCDOE to review and modify infusing opportunities for students to read and respond to a combination of texts through ELA instruction.

From the Principal ...
It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to make arrangements for child's dismissal pickup, should you be working, unavailable or running late. For this reason, we ask that you have additional names listed on your emergency contact "blue" card. Children will only be released to adults authorized in writing (blue cards/letter) from parent/guardian. If you are planning to pick up your child earlier than dismissal time, please send a note to teacher, that morning, giving time and person who will be picking up child.
Monday thru Friday 2:40pm regular dismissal. Tuesday and Wednesday has 3:30pm Extended Day dismissal (in school yard). Children cannot stay unattended in the office.
