  • 2017 Summer Mailing Forms - Update 8/10/17

    Please see the Connect-Ed message that was sent to families on the morning of July 18 regarding the new process for the 2017 Summer Mailing Forms. Please select "Read More" for updates.

    SUBMISSION OF PHYSICAL: You may now upload an electronic copy of a doctor-completed physical form within the Physicians section of the Summer Mailing Forms. If you have already completed your other forms and would now like to upload a physical, please log in to view your summary and select Edit from the drop-down. You may also send it in hard copy to the child's school, or email it to the school's klschools address located in the Contact Information. You do not need to provide it here if it has already been submitted in a 2017-18 Fall Athletics registration.

    STUDENT NAME NOT APPEARING: your student's name will be pre-populated as a participant choice only if he/she has previously participated in HS or MS athletics.

    SECTION SELECTION (the first data-entry field): please select the SECTION that corresponds to the grade level that this PARTICIPANT will be entering in the Fall. If the school and grade level that you need do not appear, then you may have selected the incorrect program for this PARTICIPANT. Please return to the dashboard and enter the full name of the school into the "I want to register for a program at" field.

    FINDING ANOTHER PROGRAM: if you have finished with your John Jay High School 2017 Summer Mailing Forms submission, and would like to next submit your HS athlete's forms for the Athletics Dept, please  return to the dashboard and enter  John Jay Athletics into the "I want to register for a program at:" field.

    UPLOADING A HEALTH APPRAISAL FORM: if you have completed your child’s summer mailing forms, and would like to go back in to upload his/her Health Appraisal Form (required for grades K, 2, 4, 7, 10 and all new entrants), please use the “View or Edit my Registrations” button to update the existing Participant record for your child.

Message from Superintendent of Schools, Andrew Selesnick

August 15, 2017

Dear KLSD Community,

Early this summer, my family and I spent a night in Charlottesville, Virginia. We were driving home from a vacation, and since my son will be a high school junior in just a few weeks, we decided to spend one night in that beautiful college town. It was a quiet town that night. As we wandered through the serene campus, my son trying to picture life as a student there, none of us could have imagined what Charlottesville would soon witness – that just a few weeks later, the Governor of Virginia would declare a state of emergency.

Like families across the country, this week mine is left struggling with questions. How can horrific events like those of this past weekend still take place in our country? What inspires such hatred and bigotry? Why do the lessons of our past not inform and enlighten our present behavior?

As your Superintendent, I think about the school year past and the one about to begin. The summer is always a time for reflection and preparation, and there is always cause for hope as we look to a new school year. At the same time, we remain vigilant. We remind one another that no community is immune to hatred and the work of combatting it is work for us all.

Teresa Sullivan, President of the University of Virginia, wrote the following to her community this week:

The University supports the First Amendment rights to free speech and peaceable assembly. Acts of violence, however, are not protected by the First Amendment. Violence and bigotry are not political positions. We strongly condemn intimidating and abhorrent behavior intended to strike fear and sow division in our community. As a public institution, we value diversity, inclusion and mutual respect. We value an environment in which learning happens.

Here in KLSD, we share President Sullivan’s commitment and the values she espouses. And I’ll borrow a few more words from UVA’s website, “Discussion. Collaboration. Enlightenment. These are the ideals to which Thomas Jefferson aspired when conceiving the University of Virginia.” That last word, enlightenment, strikes me as most relevant, most inspiring today. As an educational institution, we commit to helping our students understand history’s lessons, to become ever more understanding and accepting of one another as we move forward as a community.

Appreciating how hard it can be to have conversation at home at times such as this, I share the following article. I hope it may be helpful to you:

We look forward to welcoming back all our students and staff in just a few weeks. Until then, I hope all can enjoy peaceful summer days.

Sincerely,

Andrew Selesnick, Superintendent of Schools
