Dear Urban Assembly School of Music and Art,
The safety and well-being of our students and staff members remain our highest priority. Toward that end, we are notifying you that this morning, we were informed of a potential threat to our school on social media.
NYPD was immediately contacted and is actively investigating the report. In the interim, we have been assured that there is no immediate threat to students, faculty or staff at our school. We therefore are proceeding with a regular day of instruction.
As part of our safety efforts, we have increased supports including additional school safety agents and NYPD presence on campus. Thank you for your cooperation as we work together to ensure that our school continues to provide a safe, supportive learning environment for all of our students. It is important that we remain vigilant, and if we see something, say something.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school at (718) 858-0249.

The Urban Assembly for Music and Art (UAMA) is pleased to announce that beginning in the 2017-18 school year we are providing 1:1 technology to every UAMA student. Just like college and the world of work, UAMA students need to be able to work inside and out of school, virtually and in-person, on mobile technology or using a pen and paper, so we want all of our students to be connected! Through a partnership with Sprint, we are able to provide smart phones with wireless hotspots to every UAMA student in grades 9-12. The phone comes with 3 GB of free monthly high-speed data to use for research, homework, and overall academic enrichment through technology. The wireless hotspot also enables parents to connect to the internet either through the phone or with their own device so that they can log on to IO Education/Pupil Path where they have 24/7 access to their students assignments, grades, and attendance information. This technology will enable real-time connection between our students, families, and school, and will open the door to information about college, scholarships, jobs, and new possibilities.
They will be coming in mid fall, but in order to receive the phone. The student must return the packet filled out by the parent or guardian by this Friday. We will give you the rules of the new phones and the expected date of arrival soon.

We are pleased to announce a new partnership starting in the spring of 2018:
The Bard Early College Academy at the Urban Assembly School of Music and Art Bard@UAMA
The Bard Early College Academy at the Urban Assembly School of Music and Art (UAMA) enables UAMA students in 11th and 12th grade to enroll as part-time undergraduate students of Bard College and earn tuition-free college credits concurrently with their high school studies. Participating students take a liberal arts college course of study that aims to intellectually engage UAMA students and help them prepare for and succeed in college.
The Bard Early College Academy establishes an academic extension of Bard College at the UAMA. College courses are taught by Bard Early College faculty, and take place on the UAMA campus within the UAMA course schedule. Additionally, students participate in field trips, including conferences and academic events on the Bard College campus in Annandale-on-Hudson, and joint programming with Bard’s other early colleges in the tri-state area. Upon completion of the Bard Seminar sequence, UAMA students have the opportunity to earn as much as a semester of Bard College credits, tuition-free.
