  • Parent teacher conference!!

    Good afternoon MS217 families,

    Our MS 217 March 2023 Parent Teacher Conferences will take place remotely. We recognize the scheduling challenges remote Parent-Teacher Conferences create; therefore rather than focusing our community attention on having a March Parent teacher conference on one particular day this year, we will instead utilize the entire month of March where teachers will reach out to all of our families. Please know that students will still follow a half day schedule on March 16th and will be dismissed at 11:26 AM. We will follow Periods 1-4.

    Thank you and have an amazing weekend!
