The Board of Education of the Great Neck Public Schools is pleased to offer an “Optional Attendance Zone” choice to current 5th grade students who live in the E.M. Baker and Saddle Rock attendance areas, who are zoned to attend South Middle School, and who are fully registered and enrolled in 6th grade by September 30, 2024. Ideally, 35–40 students will elect to attend North Middle School. As long as the student remains continuously enrolled in the Great Neck Public Schools, they attend North Middle School through 8th grade and continue at North High School for grades 9-12. Guidelines for new registrants apply to students whose enrollment in the Great Neck Public Schools is not continuous. You are receiving this letter because you are entitled to take advantage of this opportunity. All students who exercise this option are eligible for transportation if they reside beyond North Middle School’s “walker” limits, and their younger siblings will be provided with the same “Optional Zone” choice when they reach 6th grade. Please note that older siblings who are not presently enrolled at North Middle School or North High School are not eligible.

The Optional Attendance Zone FAQ ( can provide you with more information about each of our secondary schools prior to making your Optional Attendance Zone decision. In addition, you may attend public events as shown on the District calendar at

If you meet the “Optional Attendance Zone” requirements listed above and elect to have your child attend North Middle School, please complete this Google Form, or print (legal size), sign, and return a PDF or paper copy of the form to Dr. Stephen C. Lando, Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education by January 26, 2024. No action is required if your child will attend 6th grade at South Middle School.

Note that you must submit a request even if your child’s older sibling(s) already attend North High School or North Middle School. Confirmation approving your request will be sent on or about February 9, 2024. Please contact Dr. Lando (516-441-4009) if you have any questions.

Very truly yours,

Kenneth R. Bossert, Ed.D.
