The end of the school year is almost upon us.

As we make our way through the final month of the 2021–22 school year, NYC public school communities across the five boroughs are hard at work organizing and hosting a dizzying range of end-of-year activities for their students, staff members, and families alike, including proms, class trips, final exams, “stepping up” ceremonies, and graduations. And if that wasn’t enough, City schools are also preparing for the start of Summer Rising in July and the upcoming 2022–23 school year—talk about a “long ‘to do’ list”!

Thankfully, we’ve got our official calendar to help you keep track of everything happening in City schools this month, including Anniversary Day, Juneteenth, program offers for incoming 3-K and high school students, State Regents exams, and of course, the last day of school for students.

So without further ado, here’s a look at what’s happening in NYC public schools this month, courtesy of our (soon-to-be-retired) official 2020–21 NYC Public Schools Calendar.

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month

Throughout June, NYC public schools across the five boroughs are celebrating the pioneers, activists, and dreamers who fought for equality and the right for members of the LGBTQ+ community to live their lives openly without fear through art, culture, civic action, community service, and more. Join in on the celebration throughout June by checking out our Pride month webpage, our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram), and our content right here on The Morning Bell!

Apply to G&T by June 17

The Gifted & Talented (G&T) application is open for interested NYC families with children entering kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, or grade 3 in fall 2022. Applications can be submitted via MySchools or through a Family Welcome Center, and the deadline to apply is June 17, 2022.

Visit our Gifted & Talented (G&T) webpage for more details about applying to G&T programs, including eligibility information and translations in nine other languages.

Check Out Your 3-K and High School Offers

Participated in either of our 3-K or High School admissions periods earlier this school year? If you haven’t already, take a look at your offer letter today in MySchools! Through MySchools, you can review your waitlist options (if applicable), and add your child directly to programs’ waitlists.

Received a 3-K offer? Accept your offer by June 27, even if you are hoping for a waitlist placement.

Received more than one high school offer? Make a choice and accept your offer by June 24. Note that if you only received one high school offer, this offer is automatically accepted—there’s nothing else you need to do.

2022 New York State Regents Exams

Beginning Wednesday, June 15, high schools (and select junior high schools) across New York State, including City schools, will be administering this year’s New York State Regents Examinations. Students should check with their schools to confirm their exam schedules and expected arrival times for each scheduled test.


And that’s all for June! On behalf of the DOE, we wish all of our students, teachers, and families, a wonderful end to the 2021–22 school year, and a special early congratulations to the Class of 2022!
