Dear Lamm Preschool Families,

We hope that you are enjoying your summer and finding some time to relax.  We just want to remind you of some important information for the new school year.  Yes, believe it or not, we will beginning a new school year in less than three weeks.  Our first day of school is Thursday, September 4th.  It is a full day of school.  We begin class at 9am and end the day at 2:30pm.  L & M is our bus company and their phone number is 718-257-2082.  If your child is riding a small yellow school bus to school, you should hear from L & M by Tuesday, Sept 2nd.  If you do not hear from them, please give them a call.  You are always welcome to bring your child to and from school.  

We request that all students come to school with a spare set of clothes that can be left in the classroom in case of emergencies.  Please provide a backpack with a notebook so that the teachers and therapist can communicate with you.  Also, feel free to share with us on a regular basis.  If your child has special dietary restrictions that we can not accommodate, please make sure to send in breakfast and lunch for your child.

Thank you for choosing the Stanley S. Lamm Institute Preschool to educate your child(ren).  It is an honor and privilege to work with each and everyone of you.

Sincerely,
AnnaMaria Caccamo, LCSW-R
Director

Hello Parents,

Over the past week, we have received sad news in regards to Bishop Ford H.S.  After more than 50 years as a Catholic H.S., they will be closing their doors this June.  The closing of Bishop Ford H.S. has no effect on the tenants in the building.  Lamm Preschool is one of three tenants that rents space from Bishop Ford H.S. and we will continue to operate our preschool program as usual going forward.  I understand that this news is unsettling and are hearts go out to the students, their parents and the facility of Bishop Ford H.S.
