How to provide your consent for COVID 19 testing:
We ask that you provide consent in TWO places; your NYC Student Account, located at mystudent.nyc AND on your child’s blue card, located at mybluecard.org.
In order to indicate consent in mystudent.nyc here are the directions from the DOE.
Submitting consent to have your child tested for COVID-19 in school is quick and easy. Please note-if you already submitted consent during the last school year or summer, you will need to do so again for the 2021-2022 school year.
There are two easy ways to submit:
Fill out the form online using the NYCSA account linked to your student(s): Log in, click your student’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a dropdown menu appears, click “Consent Forms.” Read the page, and then choose the consent option at the end for your student.
If you do not already have a NYCSA account: You can create one right away! If you have an account creation code from your school, you can create a full account in approximately five minutes, and then provide consent as described above. If you do not have an account creation code from your school, you can still provide your consent right away by clicking “Manage Consent” under “COVID-19 Testing” and filling out your and your child’s information to provide consent.
In order to indicate consent in mybluecard.org, go to your child’s blue car, click on the “health” tab and check “yes” to the question, I give my child’s school consent to test my child for COVID-19.
