Providing Consent for COVID-19 Testing It is important that you provide consent for your child to participate in the school testing program. You can fill out the testing consent form in your NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) or download a printable version at shools.nyc.gov/covidtesting. Don’t have an NYC Schools Account? Learn how to get started at schools.nyc.gov/NYCSA.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation! It is our priority to make sure all of the NYC health and safety measures are followed! If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit our COVID-19 Plan page to find all the critical information about how P.S. 18R 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.
BUILDING SAFETY: YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES WHILE IN THE BUILDING
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 and 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. 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.
