  • Update from Chancellor Porter - 9.20.2021

    Please read the Update from Chancellor Porter - 9.20.2021

    This update includes important information regarding recent changes to COVID protocols.

    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:

    • Fill out the form using your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA): or 
    • Download the form online at COVID Testing for Students and send the completed form back to your child’s school, to their teacher or to the Main Office.
    • If you do not have a NYC Schools account, please fill out the Tech Support Request form.

    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.

    Translations of this letter are available on this webpage. You can also read the letter in .pdf format.
