Safety Information

Our school has implemented a number of changes to ensure everyone's safety.

Your Responsibilities

We have put safety procedures in place to keep our students and staff healthy. 

  • Masks: Masks must be worn at all times by all adults (teachers, staff, and visitors) and by students in grade 2 and up while in the building. The CDC does not recommend the use of gaiters or face shields. Evaluation of these face covers is on-going but effectiveness is unknown at this time..

  • Handwashing: Students and staff are expected to wash hands

Safety precautions taken by our school

In addition to asking everyone to wear masks, wash hands, and maintain social distancing, our school has taken several steps to improve the safety of our staff and students. These steps have been recommended by local health authorities to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and other illnesses. 

  • Changes in class sizes: We've reduced the average class size to allow for 3 ft distancing.

  • Improvements in ventilation: In an effort to maximize air circulation, we are opening windows whenever possible and have added industrial fans to high-traffic areas.

These measures will mean fewer disruptions in your child’s education.

There may be times when your child is asked to quarantine due to exposure to COVID-19. Here are the quarantine protocols for students:

Medically Necessary Instruction

Every year, there are some students with medical conditions that necessitate interim educational services outside of the school building. These services are offered for school-aged children (from 3K to grade 12) in all five boroughs, and can include individual in-person instruction by a certified teacher, or individual and small group instruction by certified teachers through digital platforms.

 

Taking COVID-19 into consideration, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has determined that students who have one of the following conditions would be approved for medically necessary instruction:
