PS/IS 217 and families are partners in helping our students develop responsibility and independence.

We strongly discourage you from dropping off any items that your child might have forgotten, such as homework and instruments, at school.

If your child forgets their lunch at home or in the classroom, they will be served school lunch in the cafeteria for that day. We are unable to deliver forgotten items to students throughout the day and unable to escort students back to a locked classroom to retrieve their lunch. Teachers will always do their best to remind students to collect their belongings prior to leaving the classroom.

Thank you for your understanding and adhering to this policy in advance!
