Arrival and Dismissal

June 18, 2020 | Becca Brasser

Arrival

Students in the First Grade are expected to arrive at school at 8:10 each day.
All first grade students should enter the main blue door at 8:10AM. 

Dismissal

Students will be dismissed at 3:00PM by the main blue door. Please wait for us to say goodbye to your child before you take them from the line.

If someone other than you, the parent, will be picking up the child, please contact the office no later than 2:00 P.M. Teachers do not typically check email during the school day, especially in the afternoon, so contacting the office is the best way to make sure the teachers get messages about dismissal.

Remember, unless teachers are informed of the change by the parent, they cannot release the child to anyone but the parent. If a child-care provider or relative will usually pick up your child, please make the office aware of that as well, by 2:00 P.M. on the day on which the arrangement will start.

Becca Brasser

Teacher, Grade 1

Becca Brasser has been teaching first grade at Mustard Seed School since 2002. She’s passionate about teaching children to read, write, experiment, and take risks as they explore the world around them. Her own studies (including a Master of Arts degree from New Jersey City University) have given her expertise and experience in the area of literacy education.

Ms. Brasser especially enjoys taking her students on field trips all over the New York Metropolitan area, traveling on foot, subway, bus, commuter train, and ferry. Some favorite trips: the Hudson Hike, the New York Transit Museum, and the Central Park Zoo to study penguins.

Although she lives in the city, Ms. Brasser loves escaping to nature and finding it in her everyday life as well. She loves to explore rivers and lakes, woods and mountains with her husband Matt, their daughter, Annika, and son, Theo.
