Mrs. Arcuri's Messages

Good afternoon PS 5 families,  

 I am excited to welcome ALL of the children back to school on Monday, September 13, 2021.  The staff and I have been planning for a safe return for the children.  All classrooms will have ventilation including open windows and two air purifiers in each classroom.  Students will be sitting three feet apart and required to wear masks except for when they are eating lunch.  Additionally, they will receive one mask break before their lunch period and one mask break after their lunch period.  Due to their late lunch period, kindergarten and 1st grade children will be the only grades having snack each day.  


Please note that you must fill out a health screening for your child each day and present either the paper version (attached) or the picture on your phone for your child toenter the school building.   Use the link below which is also located on our school website.  


For the first day of school only, Kindergarten students will arrive at 8:45 a.m.  Kindergarten parents already received an email letting you know which entrance to use for the first day.  On the second day, all Kindergarten students will arrive using the main entrance.  All other Grade 1-5 students will arrive at 7:55 a.m. using the directions below.



  • Kindergarten and Grade 1 will be entering through the Main entrance on Deisius Street (Red Dots).  We will have a K and 1 balloon by the entrance.Kindergarten parents, please remember to follow the first day directions you already received over the summer via email from MrsApostolopoulos.  
  • Grades 2 and 3 will be entering through the blue doors on Deisius Street (blue dots) which is closer to Stecher Street. We will have a number 2 and 3 balloon by the entrance. 
  • Grades 4 and 5 will be entering through the side entrance (on Kingdom Avenue).  We will have a number 4 and 5 balloon by the entrance. 


Please note that the DOE is asking that everyone including parents wear a mask on school property. I aasking for parents to cooperate with this compliance during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal.   


Please understand that parents will not be able to walk their child into the building. We have designated areas all over the building where staff will be located, and they will know which classroom your child needs to go to.  Our staff has a detailed plan of how to assist your child upon arrival.


I would greatly appreciate if you can find time before school starts to complete some important paperwork.  If you have not already done so, please be sure that you complete our Digital Parent Handbook which was sent out via email on August 16th as well as our Back-to-School Survey which was sent on August 3rd and again on September 1st.  

All parents are required to visit their child’s student account (NYCSA) which is in the link below.  Here you will be given the option to consent or deny random COVID testing for the 2021-2022 school year. Your child’s grades and attendance are also available on this site.  We are aware that new Kindergarten parents may be unfamiliar with how to create aaccount and we will be sending home a letter with your child’s log-in information. Please check your child’s backpack for this letter during the first week of school. 


This year we are continuing the departmentalized model in which students in grades 3, 4 and 5 will have an ELA teacher, a Math teacher, and a Science/Social Studies teacher from PS 5.


We will be having our first remote PTA meeting on Wednesday, September 15th at 3pm.  You will be receiving a link that morning from Ms. Arteca.   


I hope everyone enjoys the last few days of our summer. We are so eager to welcome you back to PS 5 on September 13th!
