Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal, Daryl Blank. We have no school on Monday in observance of the Eid al-Fitr holiday. Tuesday and Wednesday are the last two days of the school year.
On Tuesday, our seniors will be graduating at the United Palace in Manhattan at 3pm. 9th, 10th and 11th graders will report to school at 9:00 am. Students in attendance will be working on planning for the 2017-18 school year. Students will work in groups to come up with ideas for the following questions:
□ How can we help students feel more connected to the school?
□ How can we better maintain a positive tone in the halls?
□ How do we help students learn to use social media in a positive way?
□ How can we better keep the school clean?
Students will be dismissed for lunch at 11:30 am. They can have lunch and go home at that time.
Wednesday, 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. Students who get to school after 9:45 am will not be given these materials. 9th, 10th and 11th graders will have their materials mailed home to them. Seniors will need to come back to school at another time to pick up their diplomas. Seniors can come to Fashion on Thursday, June 29 from 10am –Noon and Friday, June 30 from 10am –Noon to pick up their diploma. If seniors do not pick up their diploma over these three dates, they will have to come to the school over the summer to do so. No exceptions will be made.
As you know by now, we have created a new page on our school website for HSFI parents – the page is titled ‘DOE Backpacked Letters.’ We are realistic that sometimes our students do not get these letters to you and that is why we are putting all these letters in one place. There are 3 new letters on this page:
#1 – The first letter is about NYC Schools Account where you can view your child’s attendance, grades, assessments, NYC FITNESSGRAM results, and contact information in one of ten languages on a computer, phone, or tablet.
#2 – The second letter is about the installation of single-stall restroom at HSFI. This single-stall student restroom will provide our school with an additional facilities option and the resources to support HSFI students with additional privacy needs, including students with medical conditions and disabilities, as well as transgender and gender non-conforming students.
#3 – The third letter is about the annual Summer Meals program that will launch on June 29, providing free, healthy breakfasts and lunches at hundreds of public schools, pools, parks, libraries and other locations around the city. Summer Meals are available to all children 18 years and younger, regardless of New York City residency.
Here is the link to this website page – if you are not receiving this email, this website page is in the Parents’ section of the HSFI website.
Thank you for all your support as HSFI parents. It is a pleasure to serve you and your children as the school’s Principal. Please do not hesitate to contact me over the summer if you or your child need anything that I can help with. I would like to say goodbye to all of our senior families who children graduate on Tuesday.
