5TH GRADE FAMILIES:
Middle school acceptance letters will be distributed at the end of the school day tomorrow (Friday, April 21). There are no exceptions to this. Your child will have his or her letter in their backpack. We ask that you do not open this letter until you are away from school property.
If you would like to appeal for a different choice, you must return the appeal letter that will be in your envelope by May 5th.
If your child is absent tomorrow, he or she will receive the letter at the end of their first day back at school.
Again, please be mindful of the fact that not every child will get his or her first choice. Be respectful of other families and students and open the letter at home, away from school.
If you would like to speak with me or Susan Korn (212-691-1193, ext. 3) about the appeals process, please feel free to call or email us next week.
Welcome to the middle school application process! Your child’s application to middle school will be due on December 1, 2016.
