AP Exam and Regents Review Sessions

There will be several AP US History, AP Government and AP Macroeconomics exam review sessions over the next several weeks as we head towards AP exams.  Students are encouraged to attend as many of these sessions as their schedule permits, and are asked to bring notebooks, a pen, and a charged Chromebook.  Students should email me the day before each review session if they plan on attending.  For after school sessions, students should first meet in the library; students will receive passes for sessions held during the school day.  Please note: if a student cannot attend any of these sessions, all of the materials will be posted in Google classroom for all students to access and complete as they see fit. Please email Mrs. Horn with any questions.

Attend Today...Achieve Tomorrow

School attendance for kids clipart

The education of today’s youth requires a collective effort involving families, schools and communities.  By supporting regular school day attendance, we help lay the foundation for a lifelong commitment to learning.  When students attend school consistently, they develop routines and habits that carry forward into adulthood, equipping them with the tools needed to pursue higher education and career opportunities.

Missing school days can lead to gaps in learning, making it harder for students to keep up with the curriculum.  In fact, starting as early as preschool and kindergarten, regular attendance is essential for students gaining the academic and social skills they need to thrive.  Research shows that when students are chronically absent (missing 10% or more of the school year or 18 days over an entire year), they are less likely to read proficiently by third grade, achieve in middle school and graduate from high school.

Here’s what you can do to help your student build good attendance habits:

  • Stay informed. Understand your student’s attendance to be sure absences aren’t adding up.
  • Talk about it. Start a conversation about the importance of showing up for success in school and in life.
  • Set expectations. Unless your child is sick, they should be in school every day.
  • Sleep matters. Set a regular bedtime and morning routine to help your student be rested and ready.
  • Be prepared. Get ready for the school day the night before and build in a little extra time in the morning.
  • Make a backup plan. If something comes up, have a family member, neighbor, or another parent help you get your student to school.
  • Schedule carefully. Try to plan medical appointments and extended trips when school isn’t in session.

The students of today are the leaders of tomorrow.  Regular engagement in school equips youth with the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and diverse perspectives needed to make informed decisions and drive positive change in their communities and beyond.


Attendance Matters!

Red Car


Dear Parent/Guardian/Students: 

Due to limited parking spaces, only Seniors are eligible to apply to park and drive on campus.  As per Board of Education requirement, only students who have attended the C.A.P.E. workshop may be permitted to drive and park on campus. 

 Please submit completed parking applications via email to: Buccia@pcsdny.org or drop it off to the High School Main Office between 8:00am and 3:00pm.  Incomplete applications will not be accepted.  The following MUST be submitted along with application:

  1. A copy of student’s driver’s license.
  2. A copy of the Vehicle Registration.
  3. A copy of current insurance.

Once a completed application is received, student will be assigned a numbered parking spot for the 2023-2024 school year and will be issued a parking sticker which must be displayed on the driver’s side of the rear window.  Students may only park in their own designated space.  Spaces that are not being utilized on a consistent basis will be revoked. Spaces are non-transferable.


Students issued a parking sticker must arrive to school on time.  If a student is late to school more than 5 times, a parent meeting will be requested.  If a student is late to school more than 10 times, your parking pass will be revoked.  If a student is late due to a medical appointment, a doctor’s note must be provided.  Students must be responsible and take into account weather related conditions, speed limits and the walk from their designated space into the school building when planning their morning drive to school.

 Any student not obeying the parking regulations will lose parking privileges for two (2) weeks.  A second offense will result in a loss of parking permit for an entire semester.
