The Fashionable Times Blog Principal's Message 6.19

Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal, Daryl Blank.  Happy Father’s Day to all of our HSFI Dads.

The Regents testing period continues this week until Thursday, June 23.  Please understand that Regents examinations are high-stakes tests that students need to graduate high school.  A complete Regents schedule is attached to this email and posted on our school website.  Please make sure that your children attend the exams they are scheduled for and have studied for these exams.  We will soon be getting Regents results back – they will be posted on the school website as they become available.

Friday, June 24 and Monday, June 27 are instructional days on the NYC DOE calendar.  We will be using a special half day schedule where students who begin Period 1 arrive at 8:45 am and students who finish after 9th period leave school at Noon.  Students will follow their Spring schedules.  Lunch will be served for students at the end of their day.  Below is the class schedule for these two days:

Period 1
Period 2
Period 3
Period 4
Period 5
Period 6
Period 7
Period 8
Period 9

Tuesday, June 28 is the last day of school for students.  Students will arrive at 9:00 am to pick up their report cards, diplomas and sadly for some, their summer school programs.

Getting back to the Regents, when students come to school for these Regents exams they should bring:
#1 - Exam invitations
#2 – Student identification card
#3 – 2 pencils and 2 pens. 

It is important that students DO NOT BRING ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT to their testing rooms when they take their Regents exams.  This past week we had 2 students caught with electronic equipment and have their Regents exams invalidated and given a 0 on the exam.  This electronic equipment policy is New York State law. 

Please contact anyone of our Assistant Principals—Ms. Moore (English); Mr. Kohm (Math); Mr. Rodrigues (Social Studies); Ms. Frank (Science) - if you have any specific questions about these exams. 

If your child does not have a Regents exam on a specific day during the testing period, they do not attend school that day unless there is a special event or tutoring session.

Please make sure you continue to check out The Fashionable Times Blog where we will include all the important information you need as Fashion parents.  The website link is:

Thank you!
