    • If your child is participating in school spirit day, they should wear what is designated on those days.
    • If they are not participating in school spirit day, they should wear their uniforms.

    Parents may purchase the school uniform from any children's clothing department store. Should you have any questions regarding our mandatory uniform policy, please contact Ms. Reyes, Parent Coordinator at 718-845-8290 extension 2111 or email: Jreyes223@schools.nyc.gov
