High School Offer Letters Available for 8th Graders

From MS 67Q Administrative Team:

Dear 8th Grade Students and Parents,

We hope this message finds you and your families well.  Please note that later today, the Office of Student Enrollment (OSE) will:

� Notify families by email that they can log into MySchools to view their child’s high school offer.

� Call parents/guardians who do not have an online account in MySchools to let them know that their offer letter is available. We expect printed offer letters for these students to be mailed by today.

Office of School Enrollment will also print and mail all other students’ offer letters to each student’s home address by early April.

There will be no Round 2 application this year. Instead, all high school programs (except the nine Specialized High Schools) will have waitlists. Waitlists will open for schools and families on Monday, March 23, 2020.

Please note the emails have not been sent yet by the Office of School Enrollment.  You should receive these emails later today.  Also, emails will not all come at the same time, and some students and parents may receive their offer emails in advance of other.  If you have any questions about High School Offer Letters and next steps after receiving the email, please reach out to our Guidance Counselors according to the first letter of your last name:

-Last Names A-L Mr. Jerard Armstrong (jarmstr@schools.nyc.gov)

-Last Names M-Z Ms. Nina Scalici  (ascalici6@schools.nyc.gov)

The best ways to reach our Guidance Counselors will be through email or PupilPath.  On PupilPath, you can ensure a message will be forwarded to their emails by checking off on the bottom of the message.  If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to a member of the Administrative Team.
