Dear Families,


We are so excited to begin the 22-23 school year on Thursday, September 8th. The 76th Street gate will open at 7:55 for breakfast and class assignments. The DLMS team has been working hard to prepare for student arrival and looks forward to meeting our new students and welcoming back returning students. We hope you have had a safe and restful summer and are ready for a year of learning, exploring and nurturing the strengths and talents each member of our community.


We would like to invite all families to join us for grade-specific welcome sessions on the following dates:

  • 6th Grade: Monday, September 12 from 8:30 - 9:30 am

  • 7th Grade: Wednesday, September 14 from 8:30 - 9:30 am

  • 8th Grade: Tuesday, September 13 from 8:30 - 9:30 am

These sessions will be at DLMS and proof of COVID19 vaccination is required. We will review important parts of our Student and Family Handbook, introduce the DLMS team and share information about the year ahead. For additional events throughout the year, please bookmark our Family Calendar and website.


As always, please reach out with any questions or suggestions. We look forward to an amazing year of celebrating our REACH values and growing together.


In partnership,

Ms. Jelinek and the DLMS Team

Dear DLMS Community,

Welcome students, families and staff to the 2022-2023 school year at Dual Language Middle School!


This year, we will renew our commitment to our REACH values as we continue to provide world class instruction daily with the expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We are excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively as a DLMS familia to ensure that our students are provided with the best educational experience possible to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and prepared for success in their endeavors after middle school.

As always, please reach out with any questions that you have so we can continue to serve you. It is going to be an amazing year!
