Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal, Daryl Blank.
Regents continue on Monday and Tuesday. As we get Regents scores, we will post the scores on the HSFI website. If a student does not have an exam, they should not report to school unless there is a special event or tutoring session. Please check with your children to make sure you know which exams they are scheduled to take.
When students come to school for these Regents exams they should bring: (1) Exam tickets (2) Student identification card and (3) 2 pencils and 2 pens. It is important that students DO NOT BRING ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT INTO THEIR TESTING ROOM. The presence of this electronic equipment with your child will result in their score being invalidated and given a 0 on the exam. This electronic equipment policy is New York State law.
Make sure your children are studying for these exams as they need them to graduate high school and build up their college resume.
Graduation will take place this Monday, June 24th at United Palace on 175th Street and Broadway. Graduates have to be there at 12:30 pm to start lining up. The doors open for parents and families at 2:00 pm and the ceremony starts at 3:00 pm. Parking is difficult in the area, but there are two lots on Broadway between 176th and 177th Street.
Wednesday, June 26 is the last day of school where students pick up their diplomas, final report cards and sadly for some, their summer school information. All students should report to their official class on Wednesday at 8:45 am. Students who get to school after 9:45 am will not be given these materials. No exceptions will be made. 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. If seniors do not pick up their diplomas, they will have to come to the school over the summer to do so. No exceptions will be made. Diplomas will not be mailed home. In order for parents to pick up a diploma on behalf of their child, the student must write a letter giving the parent authorization to pick up the diploma on their behalf. This letter must be notarized and an appointment for pick up made with Assistant Principal Danielle Silva who can be reached by phone at 212- 255-1235 ext. 1255 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. An additional opportunity for graduates to pick up diplomas will take place on Thursday, June 27, 2019, from 10:00 am to Noon in Room 101. The next available date to pick up your diploma after June 27 will be in September by contacting our guidance secretary, Ms. Trotta at 212-255-1235 ext. 1010.
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 graduated.
