Referring to my previous letter dated September
10th, since the Washington D.C. senior trip is
an overnight, out of the city trip, parents/guardians who are interested in
having their child attend must participate in a mandatory information session.
For your convenience, one early morning and one evening session was available
to choose from.
offer one final session on Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019 at 9 AM in
our school auditorium. If a parent or guardian did not attend any one of the
information sessions, your child will not be able to attend this trip.
Please note the following key upcoming dates concerning the SHSAT and LaGuardia High School auditions:
October 10 is the deadline for:
Families to register for the SHSAT and LaGuardia High School auditions in the family-facing MySchools site, myschools.nyc.
Counselors to submit 504 Plans for students with existing 504 Plans who will be taking the SHSAT and/or auditioning for LaGuardia High School.
Non-public school staff to submit IEPs, IESPs, and any other documentation pertaining to testing accommodations for students who will be taking the SHSAT and/or auditioning for LaGuardia High School.
Test and audition tickets will be available approximately two weeks after the registration deadline. The High School Enrollment office will notify schools and families when tickets can be printed from MySchools. Tickets will include the test/audition date, arrival time, and location. In the meantime, families can review the test and audition dates in the Specialized High Schools Student Handbook: https://www.schools.nyc.gov/enrollment/enroll-grade-by-grade/specialized-high-schools (links to the handbook in 10 languages are at the bottom of the page).
As a reminder, if you would like your child to participate in the senior trip to Washington D.C. in May, please plan to attend one of the following information sessions next week in our school auditorium:
A high school open house calendar is now available under the Resources tab of our website (HERE). The information on this calendar is pulled from the official DOE calendar (HERE) and is provided as a convenience for parents.
Help us keep it up to date! If you see an error or omission, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a reminder to please fill out the school meals application if you have not done so already for the 2019-2020 school year.
Even if your child does not eat the food provided by the school cafeteria or you know that you do not qualify for reduced lunch, it is imperative to fill out the meal application form which determines the federal funding your school receives. It is required for every student to submit a meal application.
It is highly recommended to fill out the application online at nyc.applyforlunch.com which is quicker, easier, and more accurate than filling out a paper application. It also avoids any confusion if you may have other children within the same or different NYC DOE school. Online applications are submitted using your child’s 9-digit ID number.
If you have any other general questions, please feel free to contact SchoolFood at (877) 363-6325. Please have your child return the form to the grade assistant principal.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
