A message from our principal
Dear P.S. 481 Families:
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We are looking forward to working with you in many ways, in which, together, we will aspire for academic success for all students.
Our core belief is that parents are an essential part of a child's success in school. We recognize the important role families play in student achievement and school improvement;
Through collaborative discussion, differentiated instruction, and engagement, the STEAM Bridge School will develop 21st Century Leaders who will be College and Career ready.
In our vision we are committed to preparing an educational atmosphere for ALL students through rigorous and engaging curriculum that embeds collaborative discussion, differentiated instruction, and engagement.

Dear Parents/ Guardians,
Good afternoon to you and your family. As you are aware, at The STEAM Bridge School, “Safety is our number one priority.” This means that our obligation is to assess our current safety protocols, make updated recommendations and implement them as we proceed on an ongoing basis during the school year.
This Family Update provides important information about our latest health and safety policies. These policies will take effect on Monday, February 7, 2022.
Increased In-School COVID-19 Testing
In anticipation of the Midwinter Break, we are increasing the number of students who will be included in the city’s in-school random surveillance testing program. Beginning on February 7, schools will test the larger of either:
- 10 percent of the school’s student enrollment in grades 1 through 12, up to a cap of 250 students
- 20 percent of the school’s unvaccinated student population
Dear Families, When I became Chancellor this March, I was deeply moved to have the honor of leading the school system that I grew up in as a student, sent my children to as a parent, and served throughout my entire career. We are not only the largest system in the country by far, but also the most extraordinary, thanks to the remarkable diversity and dedication of our students, families, and educators. I see that especially now, families across the city are doing all they can to keep communities safe from Omicron
