Dear PS10 Families,
For families with students entering the PS10 school building, please get your children tested before they come to school, if possible. Although the Department of Education is not requiring that all students be tested, this is a great way to show that you care about your community and to help keep everyone safe.
Coronavirus can be contagious without any symptoms. Frequent testing is one of the best tools we have to stop the spread. Testing only offers a decision for that moment, and families need to continue to limit contacts as much as possible even with a negative result.
Here are some sites where testing is free for all New Yorkers:
The closest site appears to be:
4002 Fort Hamilton Parkway
Brooklyn, NY 11218
Monday – Sunday, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.
But many others are listed on the website. The results take a few days so please plan to take the test as soon as possible, and then continue to social distance.
Thank you for making this decision to help protect your health and the health of all our Students and Staff! We’re in this together!
- PS10 PTA
