Governor Cuomo issued executive orders 202.17 and 202.18 requiring all people in New York to wear masks or face coverings in public, including when taking public or private transportation or riding in for-hire vehicles. Practice Social Distancing even if you feel well, stay at home as much as possible. In public, keep at least 6 feet distance from others. Avoid unnecessary appointments.
Wear A Mask
Return to School-Mon, Sep 13, 2021
First day of school for students
This Fall 2021, we will return to full-time, in-person learning this September.
This means that all students in grades 3-K through 12 will be learning in-person this fall. All teachers and staff will also be returning to in-person instruction this fall.
We will meet whatever the CDC social distancing requirements are in September, and we expect that the city’s continuously improving health metrics may allow for more flexibility by the fall.
Finally, in our commitment to keep health and safety a top priority, we plan to adhere to the many health and safety measures we had in place this past school year, including the following:
-Masks will continue to be a requirement in all of our school buildings.
-Individuals with COVID-19 symptoms will continue to be required to stay at home.
-Students, teachers and staff will continue to complete the daily health screener at home.
-Every school building will continue to have a nurse.
-Every classroom will have working ventilation systems
-On-site COVID-19 testing will continue in school buildings as recommended by the latest health guidance.
-The Situation Room will continue to support schools with next steps if there are positive cases.
We know that many of our students have not attended school in-person since March of 2020,
and that returning to school in-person this fall will be an adjustment.
We promise to do everything we can to welcome your children back and
provide the supports needed to ensure a positive homecoming.
We’ve already made investments to hire more teachers and social workers,
and will have academic and social-emotional learning programs available to support our students.
In partnership, Meisha Porter New York City Schools Chancellor
-Revised NYCDOE School Closure Protocols-
The updated Situation Room’s school quarantine and closure protocols,
which will be reflected in the COVID-19 School Health Policy,
and will go into effect Monday, April 12.
These updates, and all the protocols we have been following, were developed in close collaboration with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and are based on the best research available about how to keep our schools and communities safe.
1. There is no change to classroom closures. If there is at least one confirmed positive case in a class, regardless of the source of infection, impacted students will quarantine for 10 calendar days and transition to remote learning during this time.
2. If there are 2 or more positive cases in different classrooms within a school over
a 7-day period, in addition to closing the impacted classrooms, COVID-19 surveillance testing will double from 20% to 40% of students and staff in the school on the next regularly scheduled weekly random testing day.
As a reminder, testing only applies to students in grades 1 through 12.
3. If there are 4 or more confirmed cases in different classrooms within a school over a 7-day period that can be traced to a known exposure within the school,
the entire school will close for 10 calendar days and transition to remote learning.
4. Additionally, schools will no longer close for 24 hours
while investigations take place.

Emergency Broadband Benefit Program to Families
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has launched a short-term Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program, which will provide reduced cost broadband internet service for eligible New York City households during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All families with a student enrolled in a DOE school or program are eligible for this benefit, and funds will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis until the program has exhausted available funds or six months after the US Department of Health and Human services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency.
Families can find out if they are eligible, apply for the program, and find participating broadband providers via the USAC website.
There are two types of benefits available to eligible households:
-Monthly Benefit: a discount of up to $50/month for broadband service, equipment,
and device rentals; or
-One-time Device Discount: up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer
(with a co-payment of $10 - $50), where available.
Families can visit the FCC’s EBB webpage and view this FAQ to learn more about the EBB program.
Translated materials are available via the following links: Spanish, Arabic, Amharic, Burmese, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
If families have questions or require support with an application, they can email EBBHelp@usac.org or call (833) 511-0311.
