Dear LaGuardia Community:

Check the LaG calendar and support your Senior in any way you can.

January is a very important month:
  • Parents of Seniors: Please make note of key requirements for January for your student's studio. In addition, be sure to talk with your Senior to see if there is any support she/he needs
  • Music and Vocal Juniors should be preparing for their juries in January.  Sophomore Drama students should also be prepping for their juries.  Other students, please check with your studios.
  • Students taking one or more Regents Exam :  The examination schedule for January 2018 is here. Regents week is Jan. 22-26.  During Regents Week, students go to school ONLY when they have to take a Regents Exam .    
  • Information for Music majors provided by the Music Studio can be found here.   
  • Information for Dance majors provided by the Dance Studio can be found here .


These are the NYC DOE pages we are watching for the most current information on the commencement examination requirements:


Happy New Year to you all.
