DOE HEALTH SCREENING
Students will need to come to school with the completed Health Screening everyday. If your child has a cell phone, have them add the APP to the home screen. https://healthscreening.schools.nyc
Monthly Random COVID-19 Testing Program
Keeping school buildings open depends upon awareness and immediate action on any COVID-19 concerns in our buildings. To do this, we need students and staff in our buildings to get tested! For more information about the DOE’s Random COVID-19 Testing Program, please see the presentation from last week’s parent leader briefing on random testing in schools and links below. If you were unable to make the event, you can watch the recording here.
We received a number of questions from parent leaders and advocates about testing and student privacy, and we are pleased to announce that the DOE website has been updated to provide information about the agreements with BioReference Laboratories Inc., Fulgent Genetics Inc., and Somos Healthcare Inc. We will share answers from the questions raised in the event’s chat and Q/A session next week.
Here are additional resources:

If you have a NYC Schools Account (NYCSA), you can complete the consent form electronically through the web application. If you revoke consent for testing through NYCSA, please notify your child’s school as well.
Attention Students and Parents
Daily Attendance is being taken on the Google Classroom Academy platforms by the deans. Please make sure you log-in each day. Attendance MUST be submitted by 11:00 AM or students will be marked absent!
***Covid-19 Testing and Completing the Health Screening***
Students will be provided with the Covid-19 Testing Consent Waiver from school. Please return it to the school as soon as possible.
