  • School Safety Letter May 25th, 2022

    May 25, 2022

    Dear Families,

    Today we find ourselves in the heartbreaking position of having to process, once again, the senseless
    and devastating murder of students and teachers. We have endured so much these last few years and
    our school communities have shown incredible resilience in the face of unprecedented challenges. What
    they should not have to worry about is the threat of gun violence in their own classrooms. No parent
    should have to worry about the safety of their child when they drop them off for school every morning.
    No teacher or principal should feel fear when the door of a classroom or school building opens
    throughout the day. No child should have to a light candle for lost friends and classmates.


    In these times, it is important that we all pull together and do what our city does best: support one
    another. School staff members are willing and able to provide support and assistance. Remind your child
    that their school is a safe place and encourage them to discuss their feelings. Please do not hesitate to
    share your child’s concerns with school staff members so we can provide appropriate supports.


    I want to reassure all members of our school community that we are focused on safety every day. The
    NYC Department of Education will continue to work closely with the New York Police Department and
    partner city agencies to provide support and information during major incidents that impact our school
    communities. All New York City public schools follow strict safety protocols designed to keep your
    children safe at all times, especially in the event of an emergency. You can find information about the
    protocols we follow to keep children safe on our website at schools.nyc.gov/school-life/safeschools/emergency-readiness.


    Please make sure your school has current emergency contact information for your family. In addition,
    you can register for Notify NYC (a858-nycnotify.nyc.gov) and create an NYC Schools Account
    (schoolsaccount.nyc) to ensure you receive up-to-date information on emergency events.


    The health and safety of our students continues to be our highest priority and we are here to help you
    during this challenging time.


    Soaring high,

    David C. Banks
    Chancellor

  • Confirmed Positive Cases 5/18/2022

    5/18/2022 8:52 AM

     

    Dear P.S. 064 Joseph P. Addabbo at 82-01 101 AVENUE community,

    I am writing to notify you that a member or members of our school community have tested positive for COVID-19 and may have exposed others while at school.

    Below you will find guidance on next steps that will help keep our school community healthy and safe. The information below reflects the expertise of the Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), Test & Trace Corp (T2), and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).

    What Happens Now?

    • In K-12 classrooms, students and staff who shared classroom space with the individual who tested positive will receive at-home tests with guidance and directions. All may continue to attend school as long as they test negative for COVID and have no COVID like symptoms.
    • The Situation Room will monitor our school for any further interventions.
    • Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious.
    • All areas visited by the person with COVID-19 will be deep cleaned and disinfected.
    • If your child is feeling sick, keep them at home.
    • If your child is at least 2 years old in a Pre-K, 3-K or LYFE program, they must quarantine for at least 5 days since their last exposure. To return to school on Day 6, your child must be asymptomatic, and have a negative lab-based test taken on Day 5, or 2 negative home tests, taken on Day 4 and Day 5 respectively. Your school will send your child home with a COVID Test kit so they can test to return from quarantine on Day 6. Children that do not get tested can return after quarantining for 10 days. Children who return on Day 6 must wear a well-fitting mask until Day 10. As a reminder, regardless of age, students who are fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine when they are exposed to COVID-19, unless they have symptoms.
    • If your child is under 2 years old in a LYFE classroom, they must quarantine for at least 8 days since their last exposure. In order to test to return to school on Day 8, your child must be asymptomatic, and have a negative lab-based test taken on Day 5. Children that do not get tested can return after quarantining for 10 days. Note: home test kits are not considered valid for children under 2 years old, unless administered by a health care provider.
    • Students that have had, and recovered from, COVID within the last 90 days do not need to quarantine.

     

    How do we stay healthy? 

    Vaccination is the most important tool we have to protect ourselves from COVID-19. All New Yorkers age 5 or older are eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19. People who are between 5 and 17 years old are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine only; all older ages are eligible for all three vaccines. We encourage all eligible students to get vaccinated. Find a vaccine site today at https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/. There is no cost to be vaccinated.

    Vaccine booster shots are now available for all fully vaccinated people 12 and older. These shots boost your immunity from an initial vaccination series. A booster shot is recommended for any adult who received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least five months ago, the second dose of the Moderna vaccine at least six months ago, or the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

    Please remember to follow these important actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:   

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).
    2. Wear a face covering if you are symptomatic or exposed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Children ages 2 through 4 should continue to be masked indoors at all times.
    3. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands. 

     

    How can I stay updated? 

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa

     

    To help New Yorkers quarantine, the NYC Test + Trace Corps partners with community-based organizations to connect individuals to resources like food, medicine, and health care.  To connect with resources, you can call 1-212-COVID19 (212-268-4319).

  • Messages for Families COVID-19 High Alert Level: May 17, 2022

    May 17, 2022


    Dear Families,

    Due to recent increases in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in New York City, the city is now at a COVID-19
    high (orange) alert level. This means there is significant spread of COVID-19 in the city.
    We urge you to take the following proven precautions to protect your family and our communities:

     Wear a mask. We recommend that everyone age 2 and older wear a well-fitting mask in all public
    indoor settings, including at school and early childhood education (ECE) programs, even if not required.
    Encourage your child to wear a mask while at school or ECE program and when gathering with friends.
    Your child’s school has masks available.

     Get vaccinated and boosted. Everyone age 5 and older should get vaccinated against COVID-19,
    including getting a booster shot when eligible. Vaccines have saved countless lives and are our best
    defense against the virus. Find a vaccination site at nyc.gov/vaccinefinder or by calling 877-VAX-4NYC
    (877-829-4692). You can get vaccinated for free, regardless of immigration or insurance status.

     Stay home when sick. Everyone should stay home if they are sick or test positive for COVID-19 and
    follow all guidance, including wearing a well-fitting face mask for 10 days.

     Get tested. Everyone should get tested if they have COVID-19 symptoms, were recently with someone
    who has COVID-19, recently traveled or were at a large event. Schools are giving each child four
    at-home tests per week and testing is available throughout the city. To find a testing site, visit
    nyc.gov/covidtest. Testing is free at many sites.

     Consider other precautions, such as avoiding crowds, limiting gatherings to a small number of
    people, increasing ventilation, and wearing a higher quality mask. This is especially important for
    people who are at increased risk due to age, underlying medical condition, or because they are
    unvaccinated.

    If you or your child tests positive for COVID-19, call your health care provider or 212-COVID19 (212-268-4319)
    to ask about treatment options for people age 12 and older. To learn more, including about who is eligible,
    visit nyc.gov/health/covidtreatments. If your child tests positive, please inform their school or ECE program.
    Children who test positive or are home with symptoms can receive free online learning and office hours while
    out sick.

    If we all do our part, we can beat this COVID-19 wave and enjoy a safe and healthy spring and summer.

    Sincerely,

  • Update for Families on Continued COVID-19 Home Test Kit Distribution: April 27, 2022

    April 27, 2022

    Dear Families,

    Our school communities remain safe following spring recess. We thank you for using the COVID-19
    home tests that were distributed earlier this month. As cases rise again across New York City, we will
    continue to provide every student with four COVID-19 home tests each week until further notice. Two
    tests are for use on your child and two are for a family member to use. Please use these tests every week,
    at least five days apart, unless experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Please note, if there is a classroom
    exposure your child will still receive two test kits and a notification letter from the Situation Room, and
    would then receive two more test kits during the week.

    If you or anyone in your household tests positive, we are very pleased that safe, effective COVID-19
    treatments, including anti-viral medications, are available for some individuals ages 12 and older who test
    positive. You can access these medications through your doctor or health care provider, or you can call
    212-COVID19 to discuss treatment options with a medical professional. Treatment works best when it is
    started as soon as possible after symptoms start and can help reduce symptoms and help to avoid
    hospitalization. For more information, please see
    https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/doh/downloads/pdf/covid/treatments-available.pdf for additional
    information.

    What should I do if my child tests positive on one of the tests?

    • Kindergarten and older: Please inform your school and isolate your child at home for five days.
    Your child may return to school on the sixth day if they have no symptoms or their symptoms are
    improving (including being fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication). Your child
    must wear a well-fitting mask while at school through the tenth day after their positive test.

    • Pre-K and younger: please inform your school/program and isolate your child at home for ten
    days. Your child may return to your school/program after the tenth day.

    • For all ages:
    o Please remember that if your child tests positive, your child is entitled to asynchronous
    remote learning and Office Hours for the duration of your child’s isolation period.
    o Please refer to our COVID-19 Guidance Charts, available at schools.nyc.gov/2022Health
    for additional steps to take if your child tests positive.

    Where can I find instructions about the test kit?
    • The test kits come with printed instructions that you should follow when administering the test.
    You can also watch videos in multiple languages on how to use your test kit at
    schools.nyc.gov/HomeRapidTestKits.

    Please make sure your child completes the daily health screening form every day, available at
    healthscreening.schools.nyc.

    As a reminder, vaccination is the best tool we have to fight COVID-19 and keep our schools safe for all
    our students. Children ages 5 and older are eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19. If your child is
    eligible but not yet vaccinated against COVID-19, please make an appointment for vaccination at
    vaccinefinder.nyc.gov or call 311 to find a vaccine site near you. The vaccine is free to all New Yorkers,
    regardless of immigration or insurance status.

    Vaccine booster shots are also now available for all fully vaccinated people ages 12 and older who
    received the second dose of a two-dose vaccine at least five months ago. For more information about
    booster shots, see www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/covid/covid-19vaccines.page#boost.

    P.S. 64 Q -The Joseph P. Addabbo School
  • Confirmed Positive Cases 4/11 & 4/12

    Dear P.S. 064 Joseph P. Addabbo at 82-01 101 AVENUE community,

    I am writing to notify you that a member or members of our school community have tested positive for COVID-19 and may have exposed others while at school.

    Below you will find guidance on next steps that will help keep our school community healthy and safe. The information below reflects the expertise of the Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), Test & Trace Corp (T2), and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).

    What Happens Now?

    • In K-12 classrooms, students and staff who shared classroom space with the individual who tested positive will receive at-home tests with guidance and directions. All may continue to attend school as long as they test negative for COVID and have no COVID like symptoms.
    • The Situation Room will monitor our school for any further interventions.
    • Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious.
    • All areas visited by the person with COVID-19 will be deep cleaned and disinfected.
    • If your child is feeling sick, keep them at home.
    • If your child is at least 2 years old in a Pre-K, 3-K or LYFE program, they must quarantine for at least 5 days since their last exposure. To return to school on Day 6, your child must be asymptomatic, and have a negative lab-based test taken on Day 5, or 2 negative home tests, taken on Day 4 and Day 5 respectively. Your school will send your child home with a COVID Test kit so they can test to return from quarantine on Day 6. Children that do not get tested can return after quarantining for 10 days. Children who return on Day 6 must wear a well-fitting mask until Day 10.
    • If your child is under 2 years old in a LYFE classroom, they must quarantine for at least 8 days since their last exposure. In order to test to return to school on Day 8, your child must be asymptomatic, and have a negative lab-based test taken on Day 5. Children that do not get tested can return after quarantining for 10 days. Note: home test kits are not considered valid for children under 2 years old, unless administered by a health care provider.
    • Students that have had, and recovered from, COVID within the last 90 days do not need to quarantine.

     

    How do we stay healthy? 

    Vaccination is the most important tool we have to protect ourselves from COVID-19. All New Yorkers age 5 or older are eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19. People who are between 5 and 17 years old are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine only; all older ages are eligible for all three vaccines. We encourage all eligible students to get vaccinated. Find a vaccine site today at https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/. There is no cost to be vaccinated.

    Vaccine booster shots are now available for all fully vaccinated people 12 and older. These shots boost your immunity from an initial vaccination series. A booster shot is recommended for any adult who received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least five months ago, the second dose of the Moderna vaccine at least six months ago, or the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago.

    Please remember to follow these important actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:   

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).
    2. Wear a face covering if you are symptomatic or exposed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Children ages 2 through 4 should continue to be masked indoors at all times.
    3. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands. 

     

    How can I stay updated? 

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa

     

    To help New Yorkers quarantine, the NYC Test + Trace Corps partners with community-based organizations to connect individuals to resources like food, medicine, and health care.  To connect with resources, you can call 1-212-COVID19 (212-268-4319).


    For additional information on COVID-19, visit schools.nyc.gov/coronavirus or call 311. 

    Sincerely,

    Elizabeth Mitchell
