Letter to Families: Monthly Testing
Please view the September 29 Letter to Families to regarding monthly testing of students and staff for COVID-19 in school buildings.
"For students who travel via school bus, families must complete the screening, including checking their temperature, prior to boarding the school bus to make certain that their child is well enough to ride on the bus and attend school. Bus personnel will not be conducting screenings of children to prior to boarding the bus. School site designated staff will be checking for completion of student health screening at entry. Students who lack the screening clearance will need to be supported in completing this screening process at the school, particularly young children.
For morning student drop off, every effort should be made to ensure that student health screenings are completed prior to families dropping off their children to school, especially for our younger students."
Paper Copy of Health Screening Questionnaire:
"If students are not able to pre-screen using the online tool, schools must provide families with several copies of the health screening questionnaire so families can complete the questionnaire at home."
In-Person Health Screening Tool:
"Any person who needs to complete the health screening in-person will undergo a temperature check.
Any student who needs to complete the health screening in-person will undergo a temperature check.
Schools should determine the best way to implement on-site screening for students using either the online health screening tool or paper copies of the screening questionnaire. Young children may require additional support from a staff member."
If NYCDOE families are unable to pre-screen their child(ren) at home using either the online tool or paper questionnaire, families will need to complete their child’s screening in-person at the school building prior to their child’s entry.
