Join D26 to learn more about NYC School Bus App. The NYC Department of Education has partnered with Via to provide real-time, GPS technology in all school buses that serve District 26 schools.

The goal is to make it easy for families to verify a student’s location when they are riding the school bus and provide near real-time pickup and drop-off times. The Office of Pupil Transportation and Via representatives will introduce and explain the NYC School Bus App to our families and answer any questions.

All around District 26 the schools have been celebrating 9 Days of Love ❤️ We wanted to share our love for the wonderful teachers and staff at our school. We began by providing snacks and goodies as they prepared for our children to begin the school year. Then each day we left a little “love note” for every member. We hope that our teachers and staff felt the love and appreciation that we have for them ❤️ Days of Love  Welcome Back Staff Lounge  Welcome Back treats  Welcome Back wishing jar  Welcome Back cookies
