Update on FLHS Actions to Combat Bullying and Hate 9/18/23

To the entire FLHS school community,

Over the past few days the entire school community came together to condemn the online bullying and hate found on the two previously highlighted Instagram accounts. I am very proud to announce that the account owners have been identified, and BOTH ACCOUNTS ARE GONE!

This serves as an example about how powerful our school community can be when united for a positive purpose. All school functions are therefore reinstated. I am personally looking forward to celebrating with the entire school at the upcoming pep rally.

I want to thank the PTA, SLT, Student Organization and NYCPS for their unwavering support and stance against bullying and hate. Today is a tremendous victory, however the problem is not gone. I will continue to seek out the account owners, posters and followers of the numerous lesser known accounts and hold the students accountable individually, as mentioned in my previous message. Francis Lewis would only explore canceling events in the future if one of these accounts gains a schoolwide broad following.

I am proud of how our students handled this situation, and I am proud to be your principal!

Be well,

Dr. Marmor

Student Pick Up and Drop Off

Please do not pick up and/or drop off your child in front of Francis Lewis High School on Utopia Parkway. Parking is not permitted in front of the school building from 7 AM to 7 PM. Double parking is never permitted. This is creating a very dangerous situation for pedestrians and drivers alike. The 111th Police Precinct has brought this issue to our attention as this is a hazard and a serious concern for our children’s safety. Police officers will be issuing tickets. Parents are urged to pick up and drop off their children on 59th Avenue and on Booth Memorial Avenue only. Also please be reminded to turn your car engine off when waiting for your child. It is against the law to leave your car idling. Thank you for your cooperation.
