COVID-19

Welcome to our COVID response page. Below you’ll find all the critical information about how P373R is changing the way we operate to reduce the risk of COVID infection. We are doing everything we can to make sure staff, students, and families are safe. Please check back regularly, as we will update the information here as conditions change.

The NYC DOE Return to School 2020 site section also has important information and resources for you. See the Update for Families letter.

We have received official guidelines for our D75 students related to COVID Testing protocols upon our return to school, on December 10, 2020 ( Inclusion and Integrated classes on December 7 ).  Please carefully read the attached letter which outlines the details.  This letter will soon be available in other languages and will be distributed. 
 
Please note, one of three forms must be completed and are due to the school upon our reopening. The three forms are as follows:
  1.  Consent to Testing Form 
  2.  Medical Exemption Request Form 
  3.  Student With Disability Exemption Request Form 
These forms are attached to this email and are also available in other languages through the link below.
 
Thank you and be well.

BUILDING SAFETY

We have put safety procedures in place to keep our students and staff healthy.

  • Masks: Masks must be worn at all times by all adults (teachers, staff, and visitors) and are recommended for all students.
  • Handwashing: Students and staff are expected to wash hands thoroughly before and after eating, after using the bathroom, if exposed to body fluids (like saliva or a sneeze), and at other times necessary throughout the day.
  • Drop-off and pickup procedures: Please maintain social distancing between families during drop-off and pickup. Parents are not allowed to enter the building with their child unless arrangements have been made in advance with the office. Please move through the drop-off and pickup line as quickly as possible to make room for families behind you.
  • Visiting our school: We are limiting visitors to the school during this time. Most parent-teacher conferences and other meetings can be held virtually. All visits must be pre-approved and scheduled with the office.
  • Illness: Students and staff exhibiting signs of illness or having a fever of greater than 99.9°F must stay home. If you or someone you know has COVID-19 (or shows symptoms of COVID-19 such as coughing or fever), it is required that you stay home or at a designated care facility for a minimum of 14 days. Please contact us via phone or email as soon as possible.
  • Directions for local COVID testing: Please visit the NYS Coronavirus Find a Test Site page to find a test site closest to you.

DEVICE AND INTERNET ACCESS

We are committed to making sure that all students can successfully connect to online learning during their at-home learning days.

  • If your student needs a laptop or tablet, fill out the Device Request Form to reserve your device. Borrowing a device is free!
  • If your students experience internet-connectivity issues with their iPads, they can request help through the Technical Support for Families form.
  • Borrowed devices should be used for school purposes only and kept in a secure location. Take your device with you on in-school days.
  • If you are not able to get internet hooked up in your home, your child's teacher will work with you to provide alternative offline assignments.
  • If you are having trouble connecting to Google Classroom, Google Hangouts, or any of our online learning resources, contact Michael Curley.
