Dress Code Policy

In order to maintain a positive learning environment, it is expected that P.S./I.S. 128 students dress in a professional manner. We expect P.S./I.S. 128 students to be dressed appropriately to ensure safety and to keep the focus on teaching and learning. We would like all parents and guardians to remind students of proper dress protocols on school grounds.

Prohibited forms of dress at P.S./I.S.128 include, but are not limited to:

1) Hats, caps, or hoods (with the exception of headwear worn for religious observance).

2) Clothing that contains references to drugs, alcohol, sex, violence, racism, or gang-affiliation.

3) Clothing that does not provide coverage of torso, undergarments, and private body parts, including see-through garments of any kind.

4) Open toe or open back shoes (Flip-flops, slides, etc.)

5) Bottoms which are shorter than arm’s length (Your index finger must touch the hem of the bottom)

If a student comes to school wearing clothing prohibited by the Dress Code, then the student’s parents will be notified, the student may be subject to the interventions and disciplinary responses set forth in the Discipline Code, and the student will be expected to make appropriate adjustments to his/her clothing to conform with the Dress Code (e.g., turning shirt inside out, wear a t- shirt given by the school until the end of the school day, etc.).


Thank you for your cooperation.

School Safety Procedure

The safety and well-being of every community member at P.S./I.S. 128 remains our highest priority. 

To continue to keep our school community safe we are asking our parents to schedule meetings with staff members in advance. If you would like to schedule a parent meeting, please reach out to your child’s teacher to arrange a date and time to meet. If you would like to meet with administration or any other staff members, please also schedule the meeting in advance. Once the meeting is scheduled, we will inform school safety of the date and time of the meeting. When you arrive at the school building, please have picture ID available.  In addition, you must pass the health screening, and show proof of vaccination. 

We kindly ask all parents and family members to refrain from coming to the school building to pick up a student before 2:30pm our dismissal time. In the event you have an emergency and need to pick up your child early, we ask that you please email your child's teacher, administration, and the Parent Coordinator ahead of time.  In the email, please include your child’s name , the date and time you need to pick up your child before dismissal and the parent, family member, or friend that will be picking up your child. The person picking up the student must be on the students' blue card and show picture ID when they arrive. They will also be asked to sign the student out in our building sign out book . 

Thank you for your support as we continue to keep P.S./I.S. 128 a safe environment.
