Accommodate Our Children
This letter represents six children who attend West End Temple nursery school in Neponsit. Of the 16 children in our pre-k class, we six have been put on a wait list for the 2001 kindergarten in our zoned school, P.S. 114.
Only 25 openings were made available to the zoned community (after Universal Pre–K had been taken into account), and anyone trying to register after the initial 25 were told that they would be wait listed and told where to go and what to do on the first day of the school year, September of 2001.
Obviously this scenario is unacceptable. We are aware of the fact that we are not the only ones in this situation. The wait list goes on and it is our hope that the wait listed families who are zoned for PS 114 will band together and make sure that the children in our community will be accommodated. This is where it begins.
