P.S. 116 has several measures put into place to protect all students, faculty, and staff.

We respectfully request that all parents/guardians set an example for our students.


All visitors (a parent is a visitor) are subject to the safety and security procedures of the school, as set forth by the NYC Department of Education and NYPD:

  • For 2021-22: Parents/Guardians may only enter the building if they have a scheduled appointment. Upon entering, they must show that they have successfully completed the NYCDOE Health Screening and proof of at least 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

  • All visitors (a parent is a visitor) must enter and exit through designated entrances at all times;

  • All visitors (a parent is a visitor) must provide a valid photo ID, sign in at the security desk, and wear a visitor’s badge;

  • Parents/Guardians must sign out any child who is leaving school early;

  • Students being picked up early will be brought down by a staff member to the adult.

Failure to comply with the above safety and security procedures will result in the visitor being escorted off school premises by School Safety.
