Many of our students ride the bus each day. Safety is a top priority. Students participate in bus safety lessons and we ensure that every child is buckled up before departure daily. We use color-coded tags so students can identify which stop to get off at.
If you have concerns about the bus, you can contact the Office of Pupil Transportation (OPT):

We have a variety of ways to communicate with families and share information. Consistent, clear communication helps everyone to do their best as they know what to expect! We try to communicate mostly electronically to be environmentally conscious. Also, your child’s teacher is usually your best option when you have a specific concern as they spend most of the day with your child and knows him/her best. When in doubt, you can always call the Main Office—we are here to help!
Our methods of communication include:
If your child has a change in their daily routine (for example: not taking the bus, change in dismissal), please call the Main Office at 718-391-4667. Teachers may not check their email or Class Dojo messages during instructional time, or if they are not in the building. Calling the office will prevent a time-sensitive message from falling through the cracks.
Our team at P.S. 384 loves working with parents for the success of their child. We believe in consistent communication and collaboration to support our relationships. Parents’ involvement in their child’s education is an excellent indicator of future success. Remember: You don’t have to attend every event or be at school every day to be involved. We know that our families are busy! It starts with talking to your child each day about what they are learning and doing in school. In addition, there are many ways you can engage with our school and give back.
School Leadership Team (SLT)The School Leadership Teams (SLT) is a vehicle for developing school-based educational policies, and allows the Principal to make consensus-informed decisions on curriculum, school priorities, and budget allocation. The SLT assists in the evaluation and assessment of a school’s educational programs and their effects on student achievement. The main purpose of the SLT is to develop the Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP), which sets school goals and delineates an action plan. The School Leadership Team is comprised of many stakeholders within the school community, including parents, school staff, and the Principal. Parents are elected to the SLT for 2-year terms through the PTA. The SLT meets to discuss vital school issues on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Any parent not on the SLT who is interested in attending a meeting may do so as an observer. Meeting minutes will be posted on the school website.
