Commonpoint Queens After School Program at PS 169Q
Concerned parents of children attending PS 169 Queens, The Bay Terrace School, have been informed that the after school program provided by Commonpoint Queens will be utilizing a “lottery” system to choose program participants and will not be offering a paid option for families who do not receive a spot. This places an enormous burden on working families who have no alternative care arrangements. As full time working parents, we completely depend on this program.
We, the undersigned, are concerned parents who urge administrators and leaders to act now to ensure a fair approach to program recruitment and access to the program for families in need. We ask that access be prioritized for and available to working parents who wish to have their children participate in the afterschool program.
