DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP SAFETY [+]

When accompanying your elementary-level child to class, please escort him or her directly to the classroom.

We ask that parents picking up junior- or senior-level students use the lobby of the classroom building as a meeting place.

If an authorized person does not arrive to pick up a student, he or she will be taken to 66 Fifth Avenue, room 200, and the emergency contact will be called.

Please file contact information with the Parsons SPACE office and update the information as necessary.

Please call or email the office to notify us if your child will miss a class.

All parents should review with their children safety procedures to follow in the event of an emergency or change of plans. Be sure that your child knows how to respond in an emergency.

The Parsons Security Office is located at 55 West 13th Street (212.229.5101).
