DOE Health & Safety in Schools
It is imperative that you review both the Family Letter that was sent out via Remind (and attached here) and the recently updated Health Screener for the most recent Health and Safety guidelines, including quarantine protocols.
If your child has a POSITIVE COVID result, please email it to Janice, cc teachers and Dina, and INCLUDE the following [Full Name of Student, Date of Sample Collection; Date of Onset of Symptoms, if any; Last Date in School].
In the event you child is exposed to Covid Outside of School, the healthscreener will let you know, based on your child's vaccination status, if your child could enter our school. Please complete the healthscreener to the best of your knowledge to keep our community safe and our school open-
If your child is considered fully vaccinated, come to school!
If your child is not vaccinated, the screener will provide them with options to test back to school after day 5 to return on day 8 and quarantine. Please then email the teacher(s) so Asynchronous instruction is provided.
Test Kits are provided to and reserved ONLY for any student or staff who exhibit COVID-like symptoms in school or have been in a classroom where a positive case has been identified.
Please note that this home testing program applies only to school exposures; it does NOT apply to individuals with household (outside of school) exposures.
- The DOE encourages all families who have not yet submitted consent, regardless of whether their child is vaccinated, to consent to in school testing through their NYC Schools Account (schoolsaccount.nyc) or return a signed paper form to the school. Testing is a critical part of keeping schools open and communities safe.
