Now that our school yard on the 8th Street side has reopened, we can once again begin having outdoor line up for students in Grades K- 2. Students in Gr. 3-5 will continue to line up in the music room as normal. We ask that families please follow the new procedures carefully and help us by following these guidelines:
Below is a map of the new line-up locations in the school yard:

Kindergarten offer letters will be sent to families at the beginning of April. If you receive an offer for a spot in our PS 39 Kindergarten program, to accept your kindergarten offer you must make an appointment to pre-register by May 6.
Pre-Registration Appointments can be made online HERE.
The appointment will take approximately 15 minutes.
Please do not schedule an appointment until you have received notification about your placement from the Department of Education
When pre-registering, you must bring your child with you, as well as:
If you are not offered placement at the school you ranked highest on your application, you will automatically be placed on the waitlist for all schools you ranked higher than the school where your child got an offer. For example, if you received a placement offer for the school you listed third on your application, you will automatically be included on the waitlist for your first and second choice schools, but not your fourth choice school. Schools will contact waitlisted families directly if they are able to offer them a seat; no additional action is required of families to remain on a school’s waitlist.
Families who applied to kindergarten between February 19 and March 27 will receive a placement offer later in the spring.
If you have yet to apply to Kindergarten for your child born in 2010 and you live in NYC, you can still enroll your child in Kindergarten for September. Beginning in late April, please contact your zoned school and other schools of interest directly to place your child on the waitlist or on register, depending on seat availability and admissions priority group.

Any student interested in auditioning must return a permission slip no later than April 15th! Permission slips will be sent home with students and are also available HERE. All rehearsals will take place during the school day during April and May.
