School Covid Testing Information Links
Sun, Sep 19 10:47pm

Hi,

 

Information about the DOE's in-school testing for the 2021-22 school year can be found here:

https://www.schools.nyc.gov/school-life/health-and-wellness/covid-information/covid-19-testing-for-students

 

The short version of the testing plan is:

  • Each school should be visited every two weeks to test up to 10% of unvaccinated students chosen from the group who has "consent for testing" forms on file
  • PreK and K students are not included in this plan
  • If you were in person last year, or for a summer program, you must submit a new COVID-19 testing consent form for the 2021-2022 school year to participate in the testing program. (For new students, the program is Opt IN, not Opt OUT.)

 

You can also print a consent form and return it to school.  The English version is attached. It is also available in 9 other languages at the link above.

 

To consent online, visit the new NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) Portal (formally mystudent.nyc) at https://www.schoolsaccount.nyc/

 

Once you sign in, you should see your children's name(s) at the top.  Click on the blue "My Student" box below that, select your child's name and you should see a green box at the top that takes you to the Covid19 consent form.

 

The direct link is https://mystudent.schoolsaccount.nyc/ConsentForms/CovidTestingConsent (but that only works once you are logged in.)

 

If you have questions, please reach out to Yvette or the admin team.
