We know there’s lots going on at this time of year, but we hope you will join us for a Parent Association this Tuesday (tomorrow!) at 8:15 a.m. in the school auditorium. There will be coffee and donuts, and we’ll try to keep things moving so you can get on with your day.
See you there,
Parent Association of PS 139
Over the past couple weeks PS 139 has received large shipments of books that were ordered to support our teaching and our kids. It’s really wonderful! The challenge is stamping and labeling these books so that we can get them into kids hands.
In February 2011, New York City announced a comprehensive plan to increase the energy efficiency and environmental quality of NYC schools. An important aspect of the plan is to address polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) present in many fluorescent lighting fixtures installed in our school buildings between 1950 and 1978. We have asked our custodian engineers to conduct regular visual inspections of all relevant lighting fixtures to proactively identify PCB-containing material that may have leaked from the lighting ballast onto other parts of the fixture. Inspections also may be undertaken in response to a report from the school community of a potential lighting ballast leak.
In response to a report of a suspected leak, the DOE recently inspected one or more lighting fixtures in our building. No leaks were identified. Any ballast that was inspected and found to contain PCB’s was removed and will be replaced with a non-PCB ballast.
As the City continues to implement its program to address this issue, the DOE will keep the City’s public school community apprised as to its progress and further developments of interest.
P.S. 139 is happy to announce two upcoming school tours for families of prospective students.
