Seriously Folks,

While last Thursday was the last day of school, some students of PS 161 received notices that they would have to attend summer school. Per the NYC DOE, "Summer school provides students with additional instructional support to ensure that they achieve proficiency in NYS Learning Standards and NYC Performance Standards in order to move on to the next grade level. Students in grades 3-12 who have not yet met the criteria to be promoted to the next grade".

If you have received a notice for your child to attend summer school, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SEND THEM EVERY DAY!!!! Attendance at summer school is never 100% and we don't understand why parents would not ensure that their children meet the standards needed for promotion.

The 2008 summer school site for PS 161 is PS 241 located at 976 President Street.
