Finish renovating PS 162 now

Children are looking forward to the upcoming school year: new backpacks, school supplies and clothes. Teachers are hard at work decorating classrooms to create a positive experience for their students.

But PS 162 is surrounded with scaffolding and shrouded in dark mesh at all entrances and exits. As children enter these dark, foreboding areas, it looks more like a prison than a welcoming school.

The scaffolding was put up more than one year ago and the work has not yet been completed. I have been in contact with Community Board 11, but have had no reply.

Is this any way for our children to start the school year?
