School Supplies 2024-2025 

Every June, we ask families to fund school supplies for the year ahead. For 2024-2025, this school supply fee will fund: crayons, flair pens, folders, book baggies, tissues, paper towels, markers, sharpies, white board markers, tape etc. Each classroom will have everything they need in place to start the school year in September. To help cover the cost of school supplies for the year, we are requesting a one-time fee of $90 for each child. Please pay online here by Monday, September 30th, or submit cash or check to the PTA mailbox. Checks may be made payable to "PS 267 PTA". Thank you, and we look forward to a fantastic 2024-2025 school year together! Questions? Please email

Family Tips & Activities


Free Homework Help: Families in NYC public schools can call the Dial-a-Teacher phone number to speak with a NYC public school teacher who can guide the child through any homework task. See here for more details.


Report Cards: Students receive written report cards that will be accessible to you via your child's New York City Schools Account. Instructions for report cards are here.



Forms to Be Returned to School to Your Child's Teacher:
All forms are attached and should be printed, filled out, and returned via your child's backpack.

  • If your child has any allergy and/or requires medication administration during the school day, please email this Allergy-Medication Administration Form to Maria Villalta, our school nurse at
  • Complete the Online Lunch Form even if you plan on sending your child to school with their own lunch. It is required to have one on file for every child.
  • Create an NYCSA account if you have not already done so. (New families will be sent instructions to set up their account)



  • ALL GRADES: The school day begins promptly at 8:30am. In order to have all students in their classrooms on time, the doors open at 8:25 am.
  • Kindergarten: Students in K-106 and K-101 enter through the main doors at 8:30am. Students in K-109 enter through the side door at 8:30am. Staff members will greet the students as they arrive and will supervise their walk to the classroom.
  • 1st and 2nd Grade: Students in grades 1 and 2 enter through the side entrance at 8:25 am. Staff members will be there to greet the students as they arrive and will supervise their walk to the classroom.
  • 3rd to 5th Grade: Students in grades 3-5 enter through the main double doors at 8:25 am. Staff members will be there to greet the students as they arrive and supervise their walk to the classroom.



  • Kindergarten: Kindergarteners will be dismissed at 2:40 pm. K-101 and K-106 exit through the main doors and dismiss on the east side of the street towards 2nd Avenue. K-109 exits through the side door and dismisses on the west side of the street towards 3rd Avenue. Teachers will be focused on dismissing students safely, so please do not engage in conversation with your child’s teacher at this time.
  • 1st and 2nd Grade: Students will be dismissed at 2:42pm from the side entrance of the school (facing the building, west, towards 3rd Avenue).
  • 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade: Students will be dismissed from the main double doors (facing the building, east, toward 2nd Avenue) from 2:42-2:45pm. Please note, if there is congestion, a class may be asked to exit the main door and turn right towards 3rd Avenue to ensure a safe dismissal process for your child.
  • Parents/guardians/caregivers should wait on the sidewalk nearest the street to create a pathway for classes and pedestrians. Please wait until your child’s class is lined up against the wall in their designated spot. They will say goodbye to their teachers and then parents/guardians/caregivers may take them. This will ensure the safety of all students. Please be prompt.



Families as Learning Partners (FALP)

FALP is an opportunity for parents/guardians to visit classes and experience the learning process at East Side Elementary, PS 267. Please remember to bring your ID for entry. No food, beverage, or technology use please!


Future Families as Learning Partners Dates (8.45am-9.10am):

Dates for 2024/35 school year to be announced.


Chess Classes
Through our partnerships with Chess NYC, each class engages in an 8-week cycle to build their knowledge in the game of chess. We recommend you dust off your chess board and get ready for some chess games at home! Here’s the schedule:
September-November: 3rd and 5th grade
November-January: 2nd and 4th grade
January-March: 1st grade
March-May: Kindergarten


Comfort Dog Program
As many of you may know, our school participates in the Comfort Dog Program. We have a comfort dog on site, and his name is Jackson! Jackson is a trained therapy dog who works at the school. He has a schedule and visits classrooms. He also supports students in times of need. Jackson joined our school community on September 18, 2017. He has learned so much, just like our students and staff who make learning new things a priority! Be sure to sign and return the Comfort Dog Permission Slip so that Jackson can begin visiting your child’s class.


Walking Class Field Trips
In addition to the field trips that are planned for students throughout the year, there may be times when classes engage in a field trip that doesn’t require a bus. When we stay in the neighborhood, a walking class field trip permission slip is required. Be sure to sign and return the Walking Field Trip Permission Slip.


Family Handbook 2024-2025
Our school’s Family Handbook serves as an information tool to help you become acclimated with school routines, policies, and procedures. We encourage you to read through the document so that you can familiarize yourself with our school.


Discipline & School Rules
The NYC Department of Education expects all students to follow rules so that students remain safe in school. Please read through the NYCDOE Discipline Code so that you can have healthy conversations with your child about what is considered appropriate school behavior. Teachers will work with their classes to engage in a shared set of agreements during the first days of school as well. In order to strengthen our partnership, we kindly ask that your family read through the document no later than September 23rd.


Media Release Forms
On occasion, there may be special moments that want to be memorialized via photo and/or video. Please fill out this media release form which grants permission to have your child included in these photos/videos and return back to your child’s teacher via the orange folder. This form can also be found in your NYC Schools Account. If you are new to the NYC public schools, then you will need to set up your account in September after your child’s first day of school.
