This year's 5th graders will find out on Friday, May 20 where they will be going to middle school next fall. That's according to the newly updated admissions calendaron the Department of Education website.

At least one school has already distributed the acceptance news to families. A parent told us she learned by regular mail on Saturday that her son was accepted at NEST+M, the citywide gifted school.  The acceptance letter said that the family's response must be faxed, mailed, or dropped off at NEST by May 20 -- the same day that decision letters will be coming out from other schools.

More news as we get it.  Anybody else heard from other schools about acceptance to 6th grade?  Please share information you have in comments below.
