COVID-19 TESTING for students and staff
The NYC DOE will provide testing for COVID-19 in every public school. Twenty percent (20%) of students and staff who are in-person each week will be tested.
You must provide consent for the random in-school testing from your New York City Schools Account or a hard-copy of the consent form. Consent must be on file before returning to the school building.
If you do not consent, your student will be changed to 100% remote learning.
For more information, please visit the DOE's COVID-19 Testing for Students and Staff page.
The Department of Education is mandating health screenings for every person entering the school building. All students and DOE employees must complete a health screening every day before they enter the school building.
Complete it online at healthscreening.schools.nyc. You will get a confirmation that it has been completed. Your child must show the confirmation before entering the building.
Paper forms will also be available to students while they wait to enter the building and can be completed before entering.
