Face coverings remain our strongest defense against COVID-19, so let us all mask -up for safety. 

Dear PS 20 Community,

During this time of rising cases in our school community, I am strongly recommending that we all wear a mask while attending school.  We will continue to have masks on hand for anyone who needs one.  

 To maintain the safety of our staff and students, we will continue to practice strict COVID-19 protocols, including opening windows, using air purifiers, daily health screening, and weekly test kit distribution.

The indoor mask mandate is still active for, 3-K, and Pre-K.  All staff in these classrooms, must continue to wear a face covering indoors. Since children under the age of five are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine, for our youngest learners. Mask wearing is still required in medical rooms and nurses’ offices, The nurse will have masks on hand for anyone entering who may need one.

In addition, any staff member or student in grades Kindergarten or higher returning on Day 6 following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis or after having COVID-19 symptoms without testing is still required to wear a well-fitting mask at all times on school property through Day 10.

Masks are strongly recommended for any staff member or student who knows they have been exposed to COVID-19 within the previous 10 days.

As a reminder, vaccination is the best tool we have to fight COVID-19 and to keep our schools safe for all our students. Children ages 5 and older are eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19. So please have your 5+ child vaccinated.

We thank you for your continued partnership.
