Dear Community School District 7,
Welcome Back! We are excited to kick off a new school year with you. Our teachers and leaders have been working hard all summer to better serve your children. They have been engaged in research, taking courses, collaborating with peers, teaching summer rising, and so much more.
Recently in District 7, we launched our ‘iAttend’ school campaign to emphasize the importance of attending school each day. Each missed day is a lost opportunity to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge required for advancing to the next grade. Thank you in advance for your partnership.
During the month of September, I will be creating opportunities to hear directly from you. I look forward to learning about your experiences in the district and getting ideas from you on how we can succeed as a school community.
As you prepare for the upcoming year, you can get ready by:
- Planning Ahead. Review the 2022-23 School Calendar at schools.nyc.gov/calendar for information on upcoming events and closures throughout the year.
- Staying Connected. Sign up for a NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) and update your emergency contact information at schools.nyc.gov/NYCSA.
- Staying Healthy. Submit all required health forms (schools.nyc.gov/schoolhealth) and check that your child is up to date on all required vaccinations (schools.nyc.gov/immunization).
Please check for updated information regarding COVID-19, polio, and monkeypox. The latest guidance can be found at www.schools.nyc.gov.
