Dear Wagner Parents and Families

I hope you and your children had a great first day at Susan Wagner. The students seemed eager to return to school and ready for the challenges of the new school year. Needless to say it has been a challenging first two days with extreme weather conditions. I want to thank the students and staff at Wagner that have endured the conditions of the building and made sure that our first two days were successful.

Susan Wagner High School is currently on the list of schools to get the electrical infrastructure to support individual air conditioning units in each classroom. Once this work begins, it will be a multi-year project before it is completed. In the interim, we try to provide as many fans in classrooms to make the rooms as tolerable as possible. In addition, students who don't feel well can be seen by the nurse and the administration will take necessary steps to ensure the safety of all of our children.

Fortunately, this weather should break this evening and make Friday a better day. Once again, I want to thank the students for maintaining their positive attitude and behavior during this heatwave, and the entire Wagner staff for their perseverance. I am grateful to work with such an amazing staff.

If you have any further questions, please contact our parent coordinator, Ms. Clemente, at 718-698-4200, extension 1151 or
