Health screening Update for Families 9/22

Dear I.S. Families,
Thank you for your patience and understanding as our school community of families, students, faculty, and staff work to the best of our ability to create a start to a remote learning environment and continue to prepare for in-person classes on October 1st. 

I wanted to share with you the latest family letter, which contains information about the health screening process, including the health screening survey and temperature checks, as well as other helpful information on how to stay healthy and safe while in and out of school.  Translations will be available on the Messages for Families page of our family-facing website.


This information will be very helpful to prepare to conduct a health screening for your child(ren) each day they will be entering a NYC School for in-person learning. Health screenings are required by all Faculty, Staff and Students who enter a NYC School building each and every day. There are no exceptions, and this policy is in place for visitors, parents with appointments only and anyone who may have business in a NYC School building.


If a family is in need of a digital, battery operated, oral thermometer you may request one by sending a letter to your child's Assistant Principal on the first day they arrive for class on an in-person learning day. The DoE has provided a very limited supply for only those families who may need one. Please only request one if you truly are in need and if we receive a letter sent in by your child, we will provide one while supplies last.


Please continue to check for news and announcements on our homepage, website and Pupilpath.
