NYC DOE : April 20th, 2021
As you are likely aware, today a jury handed down a guilty verdict in
the trial of the police officer who murdered George Floyd.
This is an important, emotional milestone for our country, and our school communities—students, staff, and families alike--
will surely have questions, feelings, and thoughts as we all process this.
We want our families to know that we are here for our students.
Please read the attached letter to families, in which I also share some personal reflections on this tragedy, and the work we must continue to do to reach true justice.
In partnership, Meisha Porter, New York City Schools Chancellor

NYCDOE Family Update
-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.
