Parents/legal guardians of all current eighth-grade students were recently sent a mailing explaining the required documentation and the submission method. Additional information may be obtained by phoning your child’s middle school at 516-441-4500 for North Middle or 516-441-4600 for South Middle, or by visiting www.greatneck.k12.ny.us/registration and clicking Ninth Grade Re-Verification on left column.
