Current 6th and 7th graders at the Paulo Freire schools who plan to return next year as 7th and 8th graders respectively – must complete/submit an enrollment form during the Open Enrollment (deadline midnight 3/15/16). If you have not already done so, we strongly encourage you to enroll online right now (click on the links) while you are thinking about it. Enroll here: PFFS-Downtown and PFFS-University. Current PFFS 6th and 7th graders are guaranteed a spot in next year’s 7th and 8th grade if they re-enroll by March 15th.
A random lottery will be conducted after the Open Enrollment period closes, at each grade level at both schools where there are openings – and brand-new enrollees will be offered the open spots based on their lottery number from the lottery process. There definitely will be 25 open 6th grade spots at each school for next year. There will be fewer openings for next year’s 7th and 8th grade depending on the number of returning students. Waiting lists will be created for each grade level after all openings have been filled.
There will be parent tours next week at both schools and at City High School. On Tuesday morning 2/16, there will be an open house for prospective parents at PFFS-Downtown from 9:00-10:00 am. Because that event is during the school day, visitors must call 352-0057 to notify the school that they are planning to attend.
On Wednesday evening 2/17 from 5:30-6:30 pm, there will be an open house at PFFS-University (no need to notify the school for an evening open house).
And at City High School on Thursday 2/18 from 5:30-6:30 pm there will also be an evening tour. Please tell friends and neighbors who are exploring middle and high school options about these three events next week.
