Welcome Letters

Dear Grade 5 Families:

Welcome letters are in the mail! Letters have been sent to families of all current fifth-grade public DOE and charter school students. Starting Monday, December 14, students can also get their welcome letter from their current school. Your welcome letter includes:

  • Instructions on how to set up a MySchools account and add your child to it using their unique account creation code.

  • Information on how to use MySchools to explore your middle school options and apply when the application period opens.

The middle school application is not yet open, but your welcome letter will help get you ready to apply. Need help getting your letter or setting up your account?

  • Talk to your child’s current school. They will be your main point of contact through the admissions process and can help you get your welcome letter.

  • If your child attends a private or parochial school, contact a Family Welcome Center to set up an account and get your letter.

  • Learn more at Our MySchools tutorial videos—part of our Middle School Admissions Video Series—will walk you through how to set up your account.

We know this has been a year of great change, and we appreciate the patience and flexibility of families across the city. Our DOE admissions teams are on hand to help guide you through this process. We wish you and your child a rewarding admissions season. With thanks, The Middle School Admissions Team Office of Student Enrollment
