Attendance: Attendance is the number one predictor of academic success. Just like our staff, children are expected to be at school every day on time. Absences are only appropriate in extreme cases of illness. 10 or more absences may prevent a child from being promoted to the next grade level. At PS 282, our school day is designed to ensure that your child is fully engaged in purposeful learning that is designed to promote critical thinking, prompt on-going discussion and provide multiple opportunities for our children to show us what they know by applying their newly learned skills to larger concepts and applications. Our objective is to prepare our children to feel confident enough to solve problems and address challenges that they’ve never seen before.
