Welcome to PS 158
THE BAYARD TAYLOR SCHOOL
PS 158 is a nurturing, learning community committed to academic excellence. Our school community shares the belief that, together, we encourage the abilities and talents of every child by providing varied opportunities and resources for all children to develop their intellectual, academic, creative and leadership capacities. Children and adults participate fully in the school community as responsible lifelong learners.
DOE Health & Safety in Schools
Beginning on Monday, September 27, we will no longer close an entire classroom when there is a positive case. Vaccinated and unvaccinated students who are wearing face coverings and have maintained at least three feet of distance from a student who tests positive will not be considered close contacts and will not have to quarantine.
Schools will be closed only when it is determined by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) that there is widespread transmission in the school. With the health and safety measures in place, we expect that school closures will be limited.
