What's New Here?

Kindergarten Admission

Kindergarten offer letters were mailed to families on Monday, April 21st. If you applied on Kindergarten Connect you should have received either an offer or waitlist letter. Letters were sent from the DOE Office of Enrollment, not from PS 166. If you applied but did not receive a letter, contact ES_Enrollment@schools.nyc.gov or 718-935-2009.

If you received a placement offer and you would like to accept it you must set up a pre-registration appointment. If you do not pre-register your child by May 23rd, you will forfeit the offer.

Please click HERE to sign up for an appointment.

No offers were made to non-zoned children. Please do not contact the school at this time to inquire about our waitlist. If seats become available it will not be until June, after the G&T Placement offers are made. We do not have the waitlist order at this time.

You will remain on the waitlist for any school ranked before the one you were placed at. But it is very likely that we will not have seats for non-zoned children so we advise you to pre-register at the school you were offered.

If you received an offer for PS 166 and would like to decline, please e-mail Deborah Markewich at dmarkewich@schools.nyc.gov.  Please make sure to include your child’s name and DOB.
