Reminder: Families have until March 19 to file a Zone Appeal

Holyoke Public Schools’ Zone Appeal process is now underway. Families who wish to request their child be placed in a school other than the school they are assigned to attend can file a Zone Appeal application.

All families of rising K-8 students (current PreK-7 students) should have received a letter mailed to their home address with their fall 2023 school assignments. If you did not receive the letter or have questions, please email

This priority Zone Appeal round closes on Sunday, March 19. Families are asked to apply in advance of the deadline, if possible, to give school officials more time to review applications and access supplemental information. Applications submitted after March 19 will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Contact the Enrollment Center at 413-534-2000, option 1, or email if you need assistance.

All current Zone Appeals are revoked effective June 30, 2023. Families who wish to apply for a Zone Appeal must submit a new application for SY23-24. Families approved for a Zone Appeal are responsible for transporting students to and from school on time every day.
