Daily Health Screenings

As always, the health and safety of our students, families, and school staff remain our top priority. Every student and staff member must complete the Health Screening Form prior to entering the school building each day. Anyone entering the building must confirm that they are not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, have not recently tested positive for COVID-19, and are not currently required to quarantine based on close contact with an infected person. If you need a thermometer to check for a fever, you can request one from your school.

If a student or staff member is feeling ill, they must stay home and get tested, which is an effective way of protecting the whole school community. Every school will have a nurse on staff to whom students can report if they are feeling ill.

The DOE recommends bookmarking the Online Health Screening Tool so you can quickly and easily complete the form before sending your child to school each day.

In-school testing is part of the DOE's comprehensive effort to keep school communities healthy and safe and ensure our school buildings remain open. Find citywide and borough-wide testing data using the Testing Results Report, as well as information for specific schools.

NYC DOE Daily COVID Case Map

The DOE website now features a map that shows all known cases of COVID-19 at New York City public schools. It is updated Sunday through Friday at 6:00pm, and shows information about classroom and school building closures.

NYC Schools Account

With the new NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) Portal you will be able to access key information about your child's progress in school, including attendance, report card grades, assessments, general student information, and academic schedule in one of ten languages on a computer, phone or tablet.

Please refer to the link below for an overview of your NYC Schools Account, including sign-on instructions and FAQs. If you have any questions or need assistance, contact your child's school.

Incident or Bullying Reporting

All schools should be safe, respectful and inclusive learning environments that support students’ well-being, academic achievement and social growth. However, if you feel your child has experienced sexual harassment, discrimination, harassment, intimidation, or bullying, then you can report it using one of these ways:

Schools are required to report such complaints in their Online Occurrence Reporting System (OORS). You can ask the school administration for the incident number for follow up. The school will conduct an investigation and will inform you of the outcome of the investigation. If the investigation finds that a student—or students—have been bullying or harassing your child, the school will follow the process described in the Discipline Code (also known as the Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning) and Chancellor’s Regulations A-831 or A-832 (which can be found below).
