Together for Justice: PS 58 Joins with Chancellor Carranza, Superintendent Skop, and CEC 15 to Condemn Racism

Kindergarten 2020

Accept your seat offer by June 30th at MySchools, or your offer will be considered “No Response”.

The Office of Enrollment notified parents on April 21st about their child’s Kindergarten offer.  Offers were sent from Enrollment by email and US Mail, and are available at your MySchools account.  Your child was automatically placed on the wait list of any program or school you ranked higher than your offered school.  You can see your child’s position on wait lists on MySchools now.  You must indicate if you are accepting or declining your seat in the MySchools app by June 30th.  

The Kindergarten application period ended in January, but you may be able to add your child to a wait list or update your address if you have moved by visiting the Department of Education Enrollment page for Kindergarten.

Do I have to pre-register?

Yes. Families must pre-register to claim their child’s seat offer. Though we would usually conduct pre-registration in person, due to COVID-19, our school is closed. Families with seat offers received an invitation to create an account on CareMonkey, a secure platform that automates school forms. You will be able to complete all the necessary paperwork, and upload your required documents, through the CareMonkey system using any internet-enabled device. Please check your email account for instructions.

PS 58 has two programs: Kindergarten and French Dual Language Kindergarten

We offer Kindergarten (taught in English) and French Dual Language Kindergarten (taught 50% in English and 50% in French). Families may list both programs on their application. If you add French Dual Language to your child’s application, you will need to indicate how well your child speaks French.

Zoned families who applied to the DLP and indicated that their child speaks French “very well” were contacted to schedule their mandatory French fluency verification. Results of the assessments were given to the Office of Enrollment.

Enrollment Priorities

In NYC, priority for seat offers is given to zoned children who have a brother or sister already enrolled at our school. Next, seats are offered to zoned children. At PS 58, we usually fill all K seats with children from these two groups. We do not expect to have any seats available for children who live outside of our zone.

There is an additional priority for our Dual Language program for English Language Learners (children who speak French but little or no English). Zoning requirements still apply.

Seat Offers and Wait Lists

Your child is automatically placed on the wait list of all schools and programs that you ranked higher than your offered school. You will be able to see your child’s wait list status at your MySchools account beginning April 28th.

Learn more about our Dual Language Program.

Changes to Our Zone and Admissions for September 2021

New students entering our school in September 2021 will be affected by changes to admissions policies. These changes could include a reduction in the size of our school zone, or an elimination of individual school zones in our sub-district and a switch to a lottery-based choice system.
