Dear Families,

We are so excited to begin the 23-24 school year on Thursday, September 7th. 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 of each member of our community.

I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce Novella Bailey who will be joining our DLMS team this fall as the interim acting principal in Ms. Jelinek’s absence.  Ms. Bailey has served as an educator and principal in District 3 and is excited to support our learning community. 

Please note the following details regarding the first day of school and family events this month:

We are located at 100 W 77th Street. On September 7th, students should enter through the gate at 76th Street which 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. Students are not expected to bring in any supplies. 


Dear DLMS Community,

Welcome students, families and staff to the 2023-2024 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!
