  • FAMILY LETTER FROM CHANCELLOR PORTER

     

    September 20, 2021

    Dear Families,

    It was so exciting to welcome students back in our classrooms last week, seeing the joy on their faces as they all could finally return to learn in-person with their teachers and classmates! This is a very special time, and we are doing everything possible to make sure everyone in our schools remains safe and healthy.

    I invite you to share the amazing experience of that first week of school with me through this video (vimeo.com/609642752/70f8506d67) capturing our homecoming experience across the city.

    In addition to the extensive health and safety measures summarized on our school year 2021-22 webpage (schools.nyc.gov/homecoming), we are making two important adjustments to COVID-19 protocols in our schools:

    Weekly testing. Starting Monday, September 27, the DOE will increase random COVID-19 testing in all elementary, middle, and high schools for students in grades 1-12 from biweekly to weekly. We can only test students whose parents have provided an updated testing consent form to their school. You are encouraged to provide this consent for your child if you have not done so. If you have already submitted a testing consent form for the 2021-22 school year, that consent form remains in effect. If you have not yet submitted your consent, you can do so one of two ways:

    o Fill out the form using your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA): schoolsaccount.nyc or

    o Download the form online at schools.nyc.gov/covidtesting and bring the completed form to your child’s school.

     

    Updated quarantine policy. Also starting Monday, September 27, in accordance with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we will no longer close an entire classroom when there is a positive case in the classroom. Unvaccinated students who are masked and at least three feet distanced from a student who tests positive are not considered close contacts under CDC guidelines and will not have to quarantine. This new policy applies to all students in any grade.

     

    Vaccination is the most important step that we can take to protect our families and our communities against COVID-19. To protect your children and school communities, we have mandated that all DOE school staff be vaccinated against COVID-19—by September 27, all employees will have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. To schedule a vaccination appointment for yourself or your eligible student aged 12 and older, please visit vaccinefinder.nyc.gov.

    We will continue to share everything we are doing to keep your children safe. Our school year back together again is already off to a fantastic start, and I look forward to seeing your students thrive and grow this year as they learn alongside their peers.

    In partnership,

    Meisha Porter

    New York City Schools Chancellor

    Week of September 13–17, 2021

    We were thrilled to welcome students back to the classroom—and in-person learning—this week! It was a joyous homecoming as students, teachers, school staff, and families reconnected in schools throughout the city. We are proud to once again be serving our students in safe, healthy, supportive classrooms where they can grow socially, emotionally, and academically.

    Important Forms

    Health Screening Tool

    Before entering school buildings each day, every student and staff member must complete the Health Screening Form to confirm that they are not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, have not recently tested positive, and are not currently required to quarantine based on close contact with an infected person.

    We recommend bookmarking healthscreening.schools.nyc on your device so you can quickly and easily complete the form before sending your child to school each day.

    Submit an Updated Testing Consent Form for Your Child

    In order for your child to participate in the in-school COVID testing program, you must submit an updated testing consent form to your school.

    You can fill out the form using your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA): schoolsaccount.nyc.

    Download the form online at schools.nyc.gov/covidtesting.

    COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing

    Vaccination

    Vaccination is the most important step you can take to protect you and your family from COVID-19, and all New Yorkers ages 12 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. If you have a child who is at least 12 years old and not yet fully vaccinated, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the DOE strongly encourage you to make a vaccination appointment for them as soon as possible by visiting vaccinefinder.nyc.gov. For the latest DOE vaccination information, visit schools.nyc.gov/covid19.

    Students ages 12 and older participating in high-risk extracurricular sports and other high-risk extracurricular activities are required to be vaccinated in order to participate in those activities during the 2021-22 school year. For more information, please visit our website: schools.nyc.gov/2021health

    School Visitor Policy Reminder: All visitors aged 12 and older must show proof of at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination to enter a school building. Visitors do not include students attending school in a DOE building.

    Department of Education (DOE) Vaccination Portal

    Using your child’s DOE account information, you can upload an image of your child’s vaccination card or NYC Excelsior Pass to the DOE’s vaccine portal at vaccine.schools.nyc. Submitting that information will support New York City’s pandemic response and recovery efforts, helping to ensure that our school communities remain safe and healthy.

    COVID-19 Testing in Schools

    Continuing the safety measures introduced in the previous school year, we will be conducting regular COVID testing of unvaccinated students grades 1 through 12. That way, action can be taken right away to protect the school community if there’s a positive case. In order for your child to participate in the in-school testing program, you must submit an updated testing consent form for your child to your school. You can fill out the form using your NYCSA account (schoolsaccount.nyc) or download the form online at schools.nyc.gov/covidtesting.

    COVID-19 Quarantine Protocols and Remote Instruction

    If There is a Positive COVID-19 Case at Your Child’s School

    We know how important it is to keep our schools and classrooms open for learning, and we are committed to the health and safety of our school communities and reducing disruptions in your child’s education. There may be times when your child is asked to quarantine due to exposure to COVID-19. If there is a positive case in a classroom:

    • Elementary Schools: if all students in the class are instructed to quarantine, they will receive remote instruction while they quarantine (see more information in the “Remote Instruction” section below).

    • Middle and High Schools: students who are at least 12 years old, vaccinated, and:

    o not showing symptoms will continue to attend school in-person. These students are encouraged to take a COVID-19 test three to five days after exposure.

    o showing symptoms will be directed to quarantine for 10 calendar days. These students will have access to remote learning while quarantining.

    o Unvaccinated students will be directed to quarantine for 10 calendar days and will continue their learning remotely. On day five of their quarantine, students may take a COVID-19 test, and with a negative result, return to school in-person after day seven.

    Schools will be closed only when it is determined by the 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.

    Remote Instruction

    In the event of an emergency school or classroom closure, whether due to health or weather-related emergencies (for example positive COVID-19 cases, or a snow day), classes will shift to remote learning for a period of time.

    • When an entire classroom or school is closed, teachers will conduct lessons remotely and in real-time (synchronous instruction).

    • In some cases, there may be a partial classroom closure, where only a subset of students in a classroom will be required to quarantine and others will continue to attend school in person.

    o Students who are able to attend school in-person will continue to receive regular, in-person instruction.

    o Students who are required to quarantine will have access to instructional materials (asynchronous) in their digital classrooms.

    o Students who are required to quarantine will also be able to interact live with teachers during specified office hours. Students are not required to attend office hours and can contact their teacher with questions if they are not able to attend. During those office

    NYC DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION - 4 -

    hours, teachers may offer individual or small group tutorials, check in on assignments, and answer students’ questions.

    On Election Day—Tuesday, November 2—school buildings will be closed but students will receive remote asynchronous assignments.

    Enrollment

    Still need an elementary or middle school for your child? Find your zoned school at schoolsearch.schools.nyc and contact the school directly to enroll. Don’t have a zoned school? Email ESEnrollment@schools.nyc.gov (for grades K–5) or MSEnrollment@schools.nyc.gov (for grades 6–8) with your child’s name, date of birth, grade, and address.

    If you have not received a 3-K or pre-K offer, add your child to programs’ waitlists at MySchools.nyc; there’s no limit on how many waitlists you can join! If a program can make your child an offer, they will contact you directly.

    Language Access

    You have the right to receive information or communicate with your child’s school in your language. If you or someone you know needs help, tell your school’s principal or parent coordinator, call the DOE at (718) 935-2013 or email Hello@schools.nyc.gov. You can find more information and important resources, including the Parent Guide to Language Access, at: schools.nyc.gov/hello.

    Parent Coordinator

    The parent coordinator at your child’s school can help you learn more about school programs and resources, complete important forms, and work with the principal to address any concerns you may have. You can find information for your child’s school using the Find a School tool: schools.nyc.gov/find-a-school. Contact information for the school’s parent coordinator is on each school’s page under General Information.

    Technology Support

    In the past year, the DOE has distributed over 500,000 digital learning devices with more on the way. Families should work with their schools to ensure their child has the device that works best for them. For information on devices, including how to get them repaired and how to return them to the DOE, please see the DOE website: schools.nyc.gov/DOEdevices.

    To login to DOE systems, including Zoom, Google, and other learning platforms, each student has a OneAccount4All account (DOE account): schools.nyc.gov/studentaccounts.

    Families that need technical assistance should fill out the online form at nycenet.edu/technicalsupportforfamily or call the Help Desk at (718) 935-5100 and select option 5.
