November News Update from Executive Director Stephen Furtado

It’s hard to believe that we have already completed one quarter of the school year. I would like to bring you up to date on a few things that I mentioned last month. First, our new enrollment policy has been approved by the Commissioner of Education. We will begin accepting applications for students who wish to enroll in next year’s grades 9 and 10, as well as grades 5 through 8, on December 1.  Our lottery will be held on March 8 at 6:00 PM. You will soon see a sign on our school that will inform the public that applications will be accepted for grades 5-10. Applications will be available on our website. Please let family and friends know of this important change in our policy.
