Arrival and Dismissal

June 18, 2020 | Becca Brasser


Students in the Sun and Moon Classes are expected to arrive at school at 8:10 each day.
The Sun Class will enter through the SIDE gym doors (through the parking lot by the bike racks) between 8:10-8:15
The Moon Class will enter through the 5th Street gym doors between 8:10-8:15. 
We ask that a parent accompanies each child so that there is a family member present for the daily health screening. If a child has a temperature over 100.4, he or she will need to be taken home.


On a typical day of school:

The Sun class will be dismissed at 2:35 near the corner of 5th Street and Clinton Street. The Moon class will be dismissed at 2:40 near the corner of 5th Street and Clinton Street.

Please wait across Clinton St. until you see your child’s class. This will help us all observe social distancing.

For safety’s sake, each child must say goodbye to one of the teachers (or both of them!) before leaving. At that time, teachers will make sure that they see you (or the person designated to pick up your child) before the child may leave.

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.

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.
