Update for Middle School Admission

We have made some changes to the middle school enrollment process this year. This year’s middle school application will open the week of January 11. New York City Department of Education (DOE) middle schools will not use academic records, auditions, or other screens or assessments to evaluate or admit students this year.

Coronavirus NYC Neighborhood Food Resource Guides

Coronavirus NYC Neighborhood Food Resource Guides

Hunter College NYC Food Policy Center has created Coronavirus NYC Food Resource Guides for each NYC neighborhood. Each resource guide includes information related to food access within the community, such as meals for students and seniors during this time, delivery services for people with disabilities, and resources for immigrants. Resource guides will be published and updated as rapidly as possible, in order of the NYC neighborhoods most impacted by poverty and food insecurity.


Here is the link to access these resources:
