 Dear P.S. 39 Families:

 I am pleased to inform you that our sidewalk adjacent to the school playground is now open! There will no longer be a crosswalk in the middle of MacFarland Avenue in front of P.S. 39. Since the sidewalk is now completed; our flagman is no longer directing the flow of cars and people. For the safety of all our staff and families, you must cross at the corner where our crossing guard is each morning and afternoon.

When you are dropping off your child, please DO NOT stop in front of the school. You may drop your child off on the corner or come around the corner and wait in our stop and drop line. Under no circumstances should any child or parent cross in the middle of the street. Please remember that New York State law requires all children are required to use designated crosswalks, don't walk your child across the middle of a street, cross with the school crossing guard.


Please remember these tips each morning, take a few extra minutes to keep your child and all the families of P.S. 39 safe. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this information please feel free to contact Ms. DeFilippi, Parent Coordinator and a meeting can be set up with you.


Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.






Tracey A. Wright, Principal
