Capacity

If student or teacher is feeling sick, they are required to stay home and, if their symptoms are consistent with COVID-19, are asked to get test. If students begin experiencing symptoms in school, they will be isolated and by dedicated staff members until they are picked up by their family. Staff members who become symptomatic at school are asked to immediately leave building. Whether symptoms begin at home or in school, there will be clear flow of information to facilitate fast action and prevent spread. Positive Confirmed Case Will Trigger Investigation By NYC Test + Trace And DOHMH To Determine Close Contacts Within School. Schools will communicate all families and students at school once case is laboratory confirm. DOE is working in tight coordination with DOHMH and Test + Trace Corps to identify, isolate, and prevent spread of COVID-19. In event that there is laboratory-confirmed case in school, all students and teachers in that class are assumed to have close contact and will be instructed to self-quarantine for 14 days since their last exposure to that case. Additionally, DOHMH and Test + Trace Corps will begin investigation into risk of exposure to school community and work with DOE to issue clear guidance and decisions for next steps based on outcome. These protocols focus on health of our students and staff at very core of this school year, while pursuing resumption of in-person Learning and educational services. City Will Continue To Closely Monitor Health Conditions, And If Community Transmission Begins To Rise Across Boroughs, Decision May Be Made To Close All Schools And Switch To Full-time Remote Learning. For all scenarios outlined below, all post-investigation decisions on classroom or whether full school closure is required will be dependent on specific facts of each investigation. Whenever student is quarantined at home, expectation is that they will continue engaging with learning remotely if they are feeling well enough. If school is close, principal will communicate by 6pm on night before about status of opening next morning, based on status of investigation. We will not reopen school building without confirmation from public health experts that it is safe.
