    ARTS CONNECTION

In partnership with New York City Visual Arts students, student work is submitted for selection in exhibitions hosted by corporate partners. For students, the artistic process is transformed from a subject learned in school to a professional endeavor.

 

Family Inquiry Form

Dear WSA Parents/Guardians,

The Family Inquiry form is a key factor in determining a school’s eligible to receive funding that will provide your child with the necessary resources such as textbooks, after school tutoring and other programs that can support their learning and overall experience and achievement.

We sent home the Family Income Inquiry form that will allow the city to determine funding for our school. We are happy to share that while lunch is free for all New York City public school students, we still need to collect completed lunch forms from all families to provide the support that our students need. We are aware of the concern about disclosing any personal information on the form, therefore we would like to inform you that this information is confidential. Federal regulations do not allow the Department of Education to share this information with any other agency.

We need your cooperation. Please complete the form online at www.myschoolapps.com as soon as possible. You will receive immediate confirmation that this form was submitted.
