General Election

Dear Families,

Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 6, is the nationwide General Election. Students do not attend school that day, and staff will participate in professional development.

As many of our students are first-time voters this year, we want to encourage them to go to the polls and start building a habit of lifetime civic participation. By voting yourselves, you show your children that New Yorkers can directly shape the future of our City, State, and Country.

If you are registered to vote, please make a plan to vote and remember to flip your ballot. Polling locations will be open across the City from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

You can find a guide to voting on the DOE website at:

We look forward to seeing you at the polls.
