Student Registration For Public Schools Has Begun

The Student Registration Centers in Queens will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. until September 21. The centers will be closed Monday, September 3 (Labor Day) and Thursday and Friday, September 13 and 14 (Rosh Hashanah).

The New York City Department of Education (DOE) today announced that 15 temporary Student Registration Centers will enroll new students for the opening of school. All new and returning all elementary, middle school and high school students without a zoned school should visit a Student Registration Center in their borough of residence to register. New elementary and middle school students who have a zoned school can register at their zoned school starting Tuesday, September 4. Parents can find their child's zoned school by calling 311 or visiting the DOE's Web site at http://schools.nyc.gov/FindASchool/defa ult.htm.

Staff at the centers will meet with students and their parents to complete registration. Interpretation services will be available and all forms and parent materials will be available in English as well as Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.

The Student Registration Centers in Queens will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. until September 21. The centers will be closed Monday, September 3 (Labor Day) and Thursday and Friday, September 13 and 14 (Rosh Hashanah).
