New Middle School Applications Coming Home Today

Dear 5th Grade Families,

New Middle School applications are coming home in backpacks today. Your child will have the opportunity to apply to new middle school(s) or programs opening for the 2017-2018 school year. A personalized envelope will come home today in your child’s backpack. The envelope contains the new middle school packet which includes a cover letter, 2017 new school or program information, and a New Middle Schools Application.
Students interested in applying to a new middle school must complete and return the application to school no later than Wednesday, March 1, 2017. I must receive the application by the deadline to ensure that applications are submitted. 
Students who do not wish to apply to a new middle school do not need to complete the application. The new schools application is separate from the main round application that families completed in November. If students participate in the New Middle Schools Application
process and receive a new schools placement, they will be notified in April in the same letter with their placement from the original application. Students must then chose between the main round placement and the new schools placement.
As Always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
All the Best,
