General Information

Calling all siblings born in 2010 for Kindergarten Connect pre-registration! If you have a child born in 2010 , they will need to be registered for Kindergarten 2015-16 between January 7th to February 13th, 2015 with Kindergarten Connect. If you have an older child in grades K through 4th grade then you will receive a sibling priority for a Kindergarten seat. More info here.

 December & January Lunch Menus

See the lunch schedule here

Help is needed - please see the job description.  

 As of January 1, the NYCDOE will no longer use ARIS or ARIS Parent Link, and will create a new system to provide parents with online access to up-to-date student information (by September 2015). In the interim, the NYCDOE will provide parents with alternate ways of retrieving their students’ information. More information about the new system, and alternate methods to retrieve students’ information will be shared as soon as it's available.  

If your child is traveling or out of school for more than 3 days please advise William Wilson in the main office or email your child’s itinerary to and advise your child’s teacher. This will not “excuse” your child’s absence but it will be marked as an “explained” absence. Please bring in a note if your child has seen a doctor or dentist as well.

You must bring your PHOTO ID if you are entering the school building.  The security guards are there to protect your child(ren) and keep the school safe. If you do not have an ID then you will need to return home to get it. No one will be allowed to enter the building without proper ID(credit/debit cards are not accepted).

2015-2016 Kindergarten and Lower School Tours K-5th grade. Sign-up here.
-For information about Kindergarten pre-registration January 7th-February 3rd, please see attached.

-For information about registering for grades 3rd-5th grade, please see attached.

- Grades 1st and 2nd = We have an extensive waitlist for first and second grade seats at PS276. If you live in our zone, you will need to register at PS276 starting June 1st to be placed on the waitlist. The DOE will then advise which nearby District 2 school your child will attend for the 2015-2016 school year in September 2015.
