8th GRADE - HIGH SCHOOL UPDATES

Dear 8th Grade Rocco Laurie Family,

 I hope you and your families are all doing well. Here is an update from HS enrollment regarding HS offers. If you have any concerns or questions please email me via Pupil Path. 

Students with multiple main round offers: Like previous years, students with more than one main round offer are those with an offer to a program from their application and an offer to a Specialized High School. These students must accept one of their offers. Before they accept one of their offers, their offers appear as “Pending” in MySchools.

  • The deadline for these students to accept one of their offers has been extended to May 15, 2020 (the offer letters for these students show the previous deadline of April 22).

  • Families of these students can accept one of their offers by logging into MySchools (myschools.nyc) and going to the wait list page. Accepting one offer will decline the other offer(s).

Students who receive a wait list offer: If a student receives a wait list offer, the high school will be in touch with the family directly by calling and emailing them. The wait list offer will appear in MySchools for the family and the school counselor. Families have one week to accept or decline a wait list offer. Accepting a wait list offer means the family is declining their previously accepted offer. Families can provide their response (accept or decline) by doing one of the following within one week of receiving the wait list offer:

  • Logging into MySchools and going to the wait list page. There will be options to accept or decline the wait list offer.

Stay Healthy , 

 Mrs.Iburg

As you may have noticed, parking around I.S. 72 can be something of a challenge.
However, at no time is it acceptable to park your vehicle on private property.  This includes but is not limited to the church across the street on Saxon Avenue or the private residences around the school. Nor is it acceptable to park in the bus slots.
Also, please do not indulge in reckless practices such as backing up onto Ferndale Avenue from Saxon Avenue in order to drop a student off at the main entrance.  If it is necessary to drop your student directly in front of the school, please come up Ferndale Avenue from Travis Avenue, as Ferndale is a one way street. 

The safety of our students, staff, and  the community is of the utmost importance!

Thank you for your cooperation!

MONUMENT DEDICATION

November 14, 2019  was a very special day for our school, as we dedicated a monument to our namesake, Police Officer Rocco Laurie, and former School Safety Agent, Detective Rafael Ramos. Two of our students, sisters Sarah and Sophie Shapiro's artwork can be seen on this beautiful monument that now stands proudly outside the main entry of our school. Thank you to the students, staff, community members, and NYPD involved in the ceremony. I hope you always look upon this monument with pride, knowing that we made a little piece of history today and contributed to the legacy of our amazing school. 

Please visit SIlive's website below for coverage of the event this morning.
