  • Emergency Readiness

    Please check your child's folder for a letter regarding school safety and emergency readiness!


    September 7, 2022

    Dear Parents,

    I am writing to provide you with information about the Department of Education's Emergency Readiness Initiatives that are in place in all NYC Public Schools.

    Every school currently has procedures for emergencies.  In 2000, New York State Education Law Section 2801 was enacted requiring schools to develop safety plans regarding emergency response. In July of 2001, the law was amended to require that plans include information for evacuation and sheltering. In accordance with this, "schools need to conduct drills and other exercises to test components of the emergency response plan."

    School staff members are trained in various procedures that are outlined in the School Safety Plan and we currently conduct a variety of drills throughout the year to prepare our staff and students. Section 807 of the New York State Education Law requires all schools to conduct a minimum of 12 emergency drills each year. Section 917 of the State Education Law states that schools are required to provide and maintain automated external defibrillator (AED) equipment, and drills are conducted during the year to assess the use of AED units in an emergency. In accordance with Section 3623 of the State Education Law, drills are also conducted at schools that focus on safety on a school bus.

    In addition to conducting these types of drills, our school has a Building Response Team that is trained to activate and respond to different incidents that may occur at our school. Under the new General Response Protocol (GRP), every school will be conducting specific drills designed to help prepare all school communities for three different types of response to emergencies that may occur: evacuation, shelter-in, and lockdown. Opportunities for parent engagement are available at our school to ensure that families are involved in our school-based emergency readiness program. Parent versions of the School Safety Plan are available upon request in the main office, and information explaining the GRP is included with this letter. Many other important resources for families are also available by visiting http://schools.nyc.gov/Offices/OSYD/default.htm

    Emergency readiness training in schools takes place in September and continues for staff and students throughout the school year. Student training is grade appropriate and designed to ensure that students understand the importance of these drills without causing unnecessary alarm. Please review the General Response Protocols that have been given to all students, and discuss these procedures with your child.

    All families are reminded to update the Emergency Contact Cards (Blue Cards) that are on file in our main office. This includes providing and updating information indicating phone numbers, and the names of adults to whom the school may release children in an emergency. Families are also encouraged to register with Notify NYC (https://a858-nycnotifv.nyc.gov/notifynyc/) to receive information about emergency events, and call 311for additional information about a school during an emergency.

  • A Message to Families on the First Day of School from Chancellor David C. Banks: September 8, 2022

    American Sign Language (video)(Open external link)(Open external link)

    Welcome to the 2022–2023 school year!

    As the father of four children, I still remember the excitement of September and my kids’ jitters over what the new school year would bring. Would they like their teachers? Would it be easy to make new friends? Would they do well in their classes? I reassured them that the adults in their school would cherish them as much as I did at home.

    Now, as I prepare to experience my first “first day of school” as Chancellor, I am grateful for you and for our educators, who are as excited as I am to welcome your children back. I also appreciate that in sending your children into our classrooms, you are placing great trust in us—trust that we will challenge your children intellectually so they can live out their wildest dreams. Trust that we will keep them safe and help them grow as human beings. Trust that they will graduate with a pathway to a rewarding career and enjoy long-term economic security. Trust that we will teach your children how to be a positive force for change in our world.

    I am committed to doing all of this—and more.

    My team and I have spent the summer reimagining the student experience so that it better serves your children. Literacy, which is the foundational building block of all learning, will be a major focus this school year. We are transforming how we teach reading by implementing a high-quality, phonics-based literacy program in all elementary schools. We are extending learning beyond the four walls of the classroom, offering students regular visits to local museums, parks, and all the incredible resources our great city has to offer. At the same time, we are improving students’ digital learning experiences.

    This year, we are also offering more of the learning opportunities you have requested, enhancing the way we serve all children. This includes an increase in Community Schools, Gifted & Talented programs, bilingual education programs, and programs to improve long-term academic outcomes for students with disabilities. Wellness and its role in student success is another priority you’ll be hearing more about.

    I can’t write to families without recognizing you as the lifeblood of our school communities and our true partners in your child’s education. Be on the lookout for improved ways to access the information and support you need to help your children succeed. This will include expanded language access supports for families who speak languages other than English and more opportunities for us to work together.

    Thank you for choosing NYC Public Schools. I know that there have been challenges, and I hope you agree that our schools stand ready to put all children on the path to the bright, bold futures they deserve. I encourage you to visit schools.nyc.gov/bts2022 to find the most up-to-date information about the new school year.

    As always, I am honored to partner with you to better serve our children. I truly believe that the best is yet to come. So, let’s get the 2022–2023 school year started!

    Get Ready for the First Day of School!

    Here’s what to do before September 8, 2022

     Get a physical exam.
    Is your child starting school or child care for the first time? Before school starts, make sure your child
    receives a complete physical exam from a health care provider, documented by the Child and
    Adolescent Health Examination Form (CH205). This form is available for download at

     Get required immunizations.
    New York State Public Health Law requires students to get certain vaccines in order to attend child
    care or school. Before the school year begins, your child should receive all required immunizations.
    You can find more information about required immunizations at schools.nyc.gov/immunization. We
    also recommend that all New Yorkers stay up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters for
    those eligible. Visit vaccinefinder.nyc.gov or call 877-829-4692 to find a location near you.

     Mask up.
    Students are strongly encouraged to wear a well-fitting mask on school buses and in crowded indoor
    settings, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are required under certain circumstances, such as
    visiting the school nurse’s office or medical room or if exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 at school.
    Stock up on masks for your children to wear! Visit schools.nyc.gov/covid19 for more information on
    health and safety policies regarding COVID-19 in schools.

     Get tested.
    We encourage students to test at home for COVID-19 infection the day before the first day of school

     Set a standard bedtime and morning routine before the first day of school.
    Start now to get your children on a regular sleep schedule. Then, a few days before school starts,
    practice your family’s expected morning routine, including getting ready, eating breakfast, and heading
    out the door to your bus stop or subway station in order to arrive at school on time.

     Meet your school’s parent coordinator.
    Parent coordinators can provide answers to many of your school-related questions and concerns. Call

    Get Tested

    Rapid Testing at Home

    Schools are distributing free, take-home COVID-19 rapid test kits to any students or staff who exhibit COVID-like symptoms or have been in a classroom where a positive case has been identified. Anyone who tests positive on a take-home test should immediately report it to the school and begin isolating. No proof of a negative result is required in order for these students to enter the school building. 

    Find a COVID-19 Testing Site

    All New York City students and staff members are strongly encouraged to get tested. Working in partnership with the Test+Trace Corps, families and staff members can go to any City-run testing sites to get tested or pick up readily available at-home rapid tests.

    Get Vaccinated

    All DOE students and staff who participate in high-risk PSAL sports or competitive afterschool sports must be vaccinated against COVID-19. “Fully vaccinated” means at least two weeks have passed after an individual received a single dose of a vaccine that requires only one dose or the second dose in a two-dose series of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization.

    A COVID-19 vaccination requirement also applies to students participating in high-risk after school extracurricular activities like chorus, musical theater, dance/dance team, band/orchestra (with concern for woodwinds), marching band, cheerleading/step teams/flag team. Students ages five and up must be vaccinated in order to participate in these extracurricular activities.

    Vaccination Portal

    Families are encouraged to record their student’s vaccination status in the DOE's COVID-19 Vaccination Portal(Open external link). Submitting this information will support New York City’s pandemic response and recovery efforts, and help ensure that DOE schools and buildings remain safe places for all students and staff.

    • Students and their families can access the Vaccine Portal with the student's DOE account login credentials (email and password).
    • Visit the DOE Student Account page or help setting up or accessing your child’s account.

    The Vaccine Portal will ask you to identify the type of vaccine, where you received it (in or out of New York City) and when you received the vaccine, and will prompt you to upload the image or screenshot of the proof of vaccine.

    • Proof of vaccination can be an image of a vaccination card, NYS Excelsior Pass, or other government record.
    • Take the image or screenshot and save it to your computer for uploading into the portal.
    • The portal can be translated using Google Translate.

    Privacy and Security

    The privacy and security of your information will be protected by technical, physical, and administrative safeguards, including encryption. This information will be kept confidential in accordance with federal, state, and local laws.

    Technical Support

    If you encounter technical issues using the Vaccination Portal, please contact the DOE Help Desk by calling 718-935-5100.

    School Visitor Policy

    All visitors must show proof of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination to enter a DOE school building. Visitors do not include students attending school or school related activities in a DOE school building.

    Acceptable proof of vaccination is one of the following:

    An acceptable COVID-19 vaccination includes one dose of any COVID-19 vaccine fully authorized or authorized for emergency use by the FDA(Open external link) or WHO(Open external link).

    School Closure

    Schools will be closed only when it is determined by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) that there is widespread transmission in the school. With the health and safety measures in place, we expect that school closures will be limited.


    Good ventilation is essential to prevent COVID-19. Over the past year and a half, ventilation in every single classroom across the city has been inspected, updated, and repaired as needed. Every DOE room in use by students and staff for extended periods of time will have fully operational ventilation through either natural, mechanical, or a combination of means.

    As an added precaution, every classroom across New York City has been provided with two air purifiers. Cafeterias in bigger schools will be provided with large air units for added protection and window-based exhaust fans to provide additional air circulation, and we continue to increase ventilation in classrooms and schools. These measures meet or exceed guidance from the CDC.

    • You can check the ventilation status of your child’s school online: use Find a School to locate your school's page, which includes a section on Building Ventilation Information.
    • If a room in your child’s school does not have adequate ventilation, it will not be used.


    All classrooms and common areas, such as auditoriums and gyms will have hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes available. High-touch” areas such as doorknobs and water fountains will be cleaned multiple times throughout the day.

    Outdoor Learning

    Last year, 840 schools took advantage of the innovative Outdoor Learning Initiative to expand their students’ “classrooms”. Schools will continue to use school yards, street space, and parks to provide additional space for learning. Schools in areas hardest hit by COVID-19 will continue to receive priority for the program.

    Medically Necessary Instruction

    Every year, there are some students with medical conditions that necessitate interim educational services outside of the school building. These services are offered for school-aged children (from 3K to grade 12) in all five boroughs, and can include individual in-person instruction by a certified teacher, or individual and group instruction by certified teachers through digital platforms.

    Taking COVID-19 into consideration, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has determined that students who have one of the following conditions would be provisionally approved for medically necessary instruction:

    • Active Cancer
    • Chronic Renal Diseases
    • Sickle Cell
    • Gastro/Crohn’s Disease
    • Thalassemia
    • Leukemia
    • Metabolic Disorders
    • Heart Conditions
    • Muscular Dystrophy
    • Adrenal Disorder
    • Cystic Fibrosis
    • Liver Disease
    • Tumor
    • Congenital Lung Disease
    • Congenital Heart Condition
    • Lymphoma
    • Cerebral Ataxia
    • Seizures
    • Stroke
    • Multiple Sclerosis

    Any family with a student who is immunocompromised due to a medical condition or treatment for an orthopedic, non-orthopedic/medical, or psychiatric reasons a medical condition may apply for medically necessary instruction. Applications from families with any condition not listed will undergo review to determine eligibility.

  • P.S. 64Q Uniform Policy

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    The parents of P.S. 64 have voted to adopt a mandatory uniform policy in our school. Students attending P.S. 64 are expected to comply with this policy by wearing a school uniform every day

    We are striving for 100% school uniform dress each day.


    • If your child is participating in school spirit day, they should wear what is designated on those days.
    • If they are not participating in school spirit day, they should wear their uniforms.

    Parents may purchase the school uniform from any children's clothing department store. Should you have any questions regarding our mandatory uniform policy, please contact Ms. Reyes, Parent Coordinator at 718-845-8290 extension 2111 or email: Jreyes223@schools.nyc.gov

    Thank you for your cooperation and continued support.

    Elizabeth Mitchell, Principal
