City of New York Supports our Dreamers

The White House announced major changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA protects young immigrants from deportation and provides work authorization and many benefits to over 30,000 New Yorkers and 800,000 individuals across the country. The President is rescinding the program and allowing for a 6-month “wind-down” period, during which Congress will have the opportunity to pass legislation to maintain the program. This decision is an affront to immigrants across the nation and against our values here in NYC. Together, we will continue to stand up for our immigrant neighbors and colleagues as their lives and livelihoods are thrown into limbo.

Welcome Back HPHS Families

Each year we are reminded of the importance of working together so that our children can be successful in school. Success can only be achieved if there is a clear partnership between families, staff and students. We had a 93.5% graduation rate last year because we all worked together to make that happen.

The first day of school for all students is Friday, September 1. All students must report to the Auditorium during their scheduled appointed time to pick up vital documents. The first day of academic classes is Thursday, September 7th.
