What's Happening!

Fall Registration dates: August 28th- 31st and September 5th from 9 am- 12 pm

Welcome to Russell Sage JHS 190! We are so excited that you will be joining us for the 2024-2025 school year. To help make this transition as easy and comfortable, as possible, for you and your child, here are a few important pieces of information that we will need from parents and guardians in order to fully register your child:

  • Child MUST be present upon registration
  • Childs proof of age (birth certificate, passport, government issued ID)
  • Proof of Grade/ Transcripts
  • Child’s immunization records: Students being enrolled into the NYC Public Schools must be up to date on all the necessary vaccinations.
  • Two proofs of address in the parent or guardian’s name that is registering the child: The following proofs are eligible; Con Edison bill, gas bill, pay stub, phone bill, or W2’s. Any bill you submit must be dated within the last 60 days of registration. If you do not have a bill in your name and are residing in someone else’s home you must go to the NYC Public School website and fill out a Parent Affidavit Form. Whoever you are residing with must also fill out the form stating you are currently living with them. Please bring in that form as well as two proofs of address in their name.

To speed up the process, please scan the QR code below to download our registration packet. When you visit our school to register your child, please make sure you have this packet filled in as well as the proper documentation needed.  

We will be open for registration August 28th- 31st as well as September 5th from 9 am- 12 pm. Registration will be taken on a first come and first serve bases. Please be mindful that there is a possibility that you may have to wait or even return the following day as we have a limited time frame to process all of the new incoming registrations.

                                 We look forward to an amazing school year. Go owls!


YONDR - How to use the pouch

YONDR, Phone-Free Space, begins February 26, 2024


Find 2024 Yonder Adoption.pdf to learn about  Yondr.

Dear Sage Families,

We will be making our school a phone-free space to improve teaching and learning using a system called Yondr beginning February 26th. Yondr has been implemented in over 2,000 schools across 16 countries to facilitate an engaged learning environment. 

We believe that phones have great utility. We have also found that learning and social behavior improve drastically when students are fully engaged with their teachers and classmates.

The Yondr Program utilizes a simple, secure pouch that stores a phone. Every student will secure their phone in a personally assigned Yondr pouch when they arrive at school. Students will maintain possession of their phones and will not use them until their pouches are opened at the end of the school day. Students are required to bring their Yondr pouch to and from school each day and are responsible for their pouch at all times. 

We received responses to our annual surveys from over 1,200 school partners, and after implementing the Yondr Education Program:

  • 84% saw a change in student engagement
  • 72% saw a positive change in student behavior
  • 68% saw a positive change in academic performance

Of our most recent impact survey of over 370 of our school partners:

  • 86% saw a positive impact in student safety and wellness

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your grade level AP:

6th - Dr. Meneses -

7th - AP Malizia -

8th - AP Aulicino -

If there is an emergency and you would like to get in contact with your child, please reach out to our Main Office at 718-830-4970 ext.0.

In an effort to best serve your child, we appreciate your full support in adoption of the Yondr Program at our school.
