NYSESLAT Parent Letter 2019

NYSESLAT Parent Letter 2019

April 5, 2019

Dear Parent/Guardian(s),

The NYSESLAT is given to all students who are identified as ELL/MLL by the New York State Identification Test for English Language Learners (NYSITELL). The purpose of the NYSESLAT is to annually assess the English language proficiency level of ELLs/MLLs enrolled in Grades K–12 in New York State schools. The test gives the state, schools, parents, and teachers important information about the English language development of ELLs/MLLs.

The NYSESLAT includes multiple choice, short written response questions, long written response questions, and oral response questions in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. Your child must take all parts of the test in order to receive a valid score. The questions on the NYSESLAT reflect the kinds of activities and tasks that your child would experience in the classroom.

Your child will be tested within the testing windows noted below:

April 8 – May 17 Speaking session test window (one-on-one testing)
May 6 – 17 Session 1, 2, 3  test window

There are no makeups after May 17th.  It is paramount that your child(ren) attend school during this window or they will receive an invalid score.  If they receive an invalid score, his or her level will then default to the previous year’s results. If you have plans to take your child out of school at anytime during the dates noted above, please contact Mrs. Rivera, or your child’s ESL/ENL teacher at (718) 372-0221 at your earliest convenience.

For more information about the NYSESLAT, please visit:

The NYSESLAT parent guide is available in 22 languages, including Chinese, Spanish, Arabic, Urdu, Russian, Albanian and Uzbek.

Lock down today- Everything is OK

Please be advised we entered into a lock down today because a door alarm went off.

As you are aware, safety is our #1 priority at PS 101. A parent exited the building through an alarmed door. Once the parent heard the alarm, she walked back into the building to exit through the main entrance.

Even though it was obviously a parent of ours, we ensure student safety by holding a lock down and sweeping the building (checking every room, bathroom, closet, etc) to ensure no one is in the school that shouldn’t be.

I want to convey how proud I am of our staff and students for taking proper action and following all protocols.
