safe and healthy.

COVID-19 Testing in Schools

Visitor Safety

School Visitor Policy
Effective Monday, September 13, all visitors to DOE school buildings are required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (1 dose), in order to enter the building, except in the case of an emergency. This proof may be provided in several ways. In order to enter the building, a visitor must:
• show identification,
• have proof of vaccination,
• complete the daily health screening form, and

• wear a face covering.

On the first day of school, 3K/Pre-K parents, in small groups, will be able to walk their children into the classroom and stay with them briefly on the first day of school without showing proof of vaccination. All other requirements apply. Please see for more information.

Parent-Teacher Conferences
The first parent-teacher conferences of the 2021-22 school year will take place in the fall of 2021. As in the previous school year, for the safety of our school communities, all parent-teacher conferences will be held remotely in school year 2021–22. Your child’s school will be in contact regarding the specific date and time of their parent teacher conferences.

Face Coverings (Masks)
Wearing face coverings or masks is one of the most important strategies for keeping our school communities safe. As mandated by the New York State Department of Health, all students and staff must wear a face covering when riding on school buses and on school property (indoors and outdoors), regardless of vaccination status, unless they have a medical exemption. Students who are not medically able to tolerate masks will be provided with alternative accommodations. We appreciate your support in reminding your student to wear a face covering every day to school. Forgot your mask or need a replacement? We will make sure to provide your child with one!
