Health Screening: 

Student screening including temperature checks must be completed daily-preferable at home- before students can enter any DOE facility.  Students will not be permitted to attend in person classes if they have: 

(a) experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, including a fever of 100.0°F or greater, a new cough, new loss of taste or smell or shortness of breath, within the past 10 days;

(b) in the past 10 days, gotten a positive result from a COVID-19 test that tested saliva or used a nose or throat swab (not a blood test);

(c) to the best of their knowledge, in the past 14 days, been in close contact (within 6 feet for at least 10 minutes) with anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 or who has or had symptoms of COVID-19;

(d) traveled internationally or from a state with widespread community transmission of COVID-19 per the New York State Travel Advisory in the past 14 days.

 

DOE families can support their child(ren) with completing the required health screenings in the following ways:

 

 

Online Health Screening Tool: DOE families/students are encouraged to use the online tool to pre-screen themselves before entering a DOE building. Upon entering the school facility, families/students will be asked to provide the results of their screening either by showing the email on their smartphone or a printout of the results. Families should support students as needed with this online screening questionnaire and should ensure students have proper documentation for morning entry. The online health screening application can be found here: healthscreening.schools.nyc

 

Paper Copy 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. Administrators, families, and students can find hard copies of the form here.

 

● On-Site Screening: If DOE students are not able to pre-screen using either the online tool or paper form of the questionnaire at home, they will be required to complete a screening assessment in-person at the school building prior to entry. Schools should determine the best way to implement on-site screening using either the online health screening tool or paper copies of the screening questionnaire. Young children who are not accompanied by a family member may require additional support from a staff member. If a family member is present, they will need to complete their child’s screening in-person at the school building prior to their child’s entry. Again, the preference is that all student health screenings are done at home each morning to avoid delays during morning entry. See additional guidance below covering school-based temperature checks.

Reminder:  All ICT and General Education students from our Main Site (512 Carroll Street) will remain at home in Full Remote Learning until 9/29/2020.  All at home students will have a full day of learning each day this week and on any day the child remains at home.
