Thank You!

I wanted to thank students for continuing to bring issues related to student life at Health Professions to Ms. Sewell and Principal Gentile.

It was recently expressed that the temperature in the Cafeteria is very warm in the beginning and end of the school year. Unfortunately, the Cafeterias cannot be air conditioned. However, in order to remedy this issue, we have purchased 4 additional standing fans.

We hope the additional fans will provide some relief in the warm months.

Once again, thank you to the students for taking initiative to improve the lives of all students at Health Professions.


Mr. Karaiskos
AP Administration

Water Safety

New York City water is safe. Families of students attending Department of Education (DOE) schools and staff of those schools should rest assured that our drinking water is of the highest quality in the world. New York City’s water meets or exceeds all Federal and State standards. The City’s water is tested over 500,000 times each year. In addition, the DOE works with other City agencies to make sure our students have safe drinking water in schools. There has never been a known case of lead poisoning due to water in New York City schools. The safety and well-being of students and staff is our highest priority.
