  • Family Communications: In an effort to ensure that we share news with you that is most relevant and applicable to your family, we are streamlining when and how we communicate with DREAM families about COVID-19 developments. You can expect to receive an email from your school's principal in the following scenarios:

  • If there's a positive case in your child's school

  • If there's a yellow, orange, or red zone designation in your school's neighborhood

  • If we're announcing a closure in your school building

  • Additionally, all DREAM families will be notified by email if there is a network-wide closure.

  • DREAM Mott Haven is Expanding: We're so excited to announce that we will be moving forward with plans to open DREAM Mott Haven Middle School in the fall of 2021 with a 6th grade. You’ll hear more from us soon on what this means for our community and how you can refer friends and family, or enroll your own scholars. We hope that you, like us, feel a sense of pride and excitement as a new journey begins and our DREAM family continues to grow.

  • School Calendar: For a full schedule overview, as well as additional upcoming days off, please review our school calendar for the next few months. As always, this calendar is subject to change based on external COVID-related factors.

School Messenger recently sent out a text to families to opt in to receiving text messages via School Messenger. Unfortunately, the "opt in" option can only be sent out once. If you did not receive it, or accidentally ignored it because you didn't understand it was from DREAM, you will not receive another text with the option. The flyers below explain the process and provide a code you can text to opt into the service.
