Opening of School: Academic Year 2022-2023

We look forward to welcoming new and returning students to our building this fall! Our first day of school is Monday, August 29, 2022. We will follow mask and social distancing mandates put in place by the New Haven Board of Education. Currently, the policy is mask optional/ make friendly. Please make the choice based on what is best for your health and the health of your families.

Information for your review

Welcome to the 2022-2023 academic school year at Metropolitan Business Academy. We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and enjoying your summer. In order to begin planning for a successful school year at MBA, we are forwarding you the following important information.

School Schedule: We will continue a full-time, in-person class schedule this fall. Please note our Friday schedule will be a full day ending at 2:05 P.M. In other words, the 12:30 Friday dismissal has been eliminated for this school year.

Physical and Immunization Paperwork (To all students entering 10th grade in the fall & any new student to NHPS)

Metropolitan's school nurse will need all updated physical examination and immunization paperwork before the first day of school. The physical and the immunization paperwork need to be dated AFTER September 1, 2021. We will not accept appointment cards, so please submit paperwork dated after September 1, 2021 or schedule your appointment now. The sooner this is done the easier it will be to enter as a 10th grader or new student to NHPS. The students not up-to-date before school starts will need to stay out of school until an up-to-date physical and immunization record is in their 10th grade file. Here are two letters in English and Spanish explaining state health requirements for students.

Communication: We communicate using our schools Instagram and Facebook pages, school website, and ParentLink as information becomes available. We highly encourage you to follow the school on our social media platforms. Please review regularly the school’s website: metropolitanbusinessacademy.org. Our Instagram/ Facebook handle is @officialmbahappenings.

 

Summer Enrichment: Reading is an essential component of life-long learning. Go to the Library tab on our school’s website to find our Summer Reading Enrichment page. Practice math in the summer to hone the skills you previously learned and to get ready for high school math. There are several free websites you can use, including khanacademy.org and braingerie.ck.12.org.

 

Orientation: We will share important information at our back to school orientations, and each student and a family member are required to attend.
