Dear John J. Pershing Families,

Happy Spring!

As you know our students have been receiving assessments both by the State and New York City Department of Education. The assessments are being used to measure our students and their teachers’ performances. Each school is required to grade some of these assessments and we need time in order for us to maintain compliance with submission of the scores.

 We have requested and received approval from the New York City Department of Education and from our PTA for students not to attend school on May 16st, 2014. 

We understand that that this may cause a childcare hardship for some families.  We are providing accommodations for families whose children need to arrive or stay until the regular dismissal time, or attend a full-day on May 16st.

In order to maintain safety and proper attendance of students, if your child will be attending school on this day please complete and submit the tear off below to the main office by Friday, May 2nd, 2014. If you need further information please email Ms. Jasinski at



Ms. Loretta M. Witek
