  • SMile NY Mobile Dentist

    January 3, 2023

    Dear parent or guardian,

    Good news! The Dentist will be here on January 19th and 20th 2023

    In partnership with Smile New York Outreach, we are offering in-school dental care. If your child does not receive regular dental care or getting to the dentist is a burden, the in-school dentist is coming to help!

    No Cost to You

    You will be asked to provide your Medicaid or private insurance information, which covers all costs. For those without insurance, Smile New York Outreach will see your child at no cost to you.

    Convenient and comfortable

    Our in-school dental program saves you time and provides a safe and comfortable place for your child to receive gentle dental care from licensed local professionals. Our program provides a complete dental exam, X-rays, cleaning, fluoride, sealants when necessary, and in some cases, restorative care such as fillings.

    Dental care for a healthy life

    Children who see a dentist regularly may have fewer health issues like:

    • Early tooth loss due to dental decay
    • Gum disease
    • Heart disease
    • Impaired speech development

    Help keep your child healthy, in school and smiling bright!

    Complete the permission form and return it to the school by Friday January 13th or sign up online at https://www.myschooldentist.com/32262_schsrm. If you need any help or have any questions, please contact Ms. Reyes at JReyes223@schools.nyc.gov or 718-845-8290 extension 2111

  • Confirmed Positive Case

    12/23/2022 9:17 AM

    Dear Family of P.S. 064 Joseph P. Addabbo at 82-01 101 AVENUE

    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).

    Note: DOHMH has issued new guidance due to the current transmission level of COVID. All people, regardless of vaccination status are strongly encouraged to wear masks at all times when indoors in a public setting. Please see the DOHMH advisory for more information.

    What Happens Now?

    · If this is the first time within the last five days that your child was exposed in school, your child will come home with a COVID test kit today.

    o Your child will not receive a home test kit if:

    § Your child was previously exposed within the last five days and has already received a test kit.

    § If your child has recovered from COVID in the last 90 days.

    · The kit contains two tests. Please follow the directions below to use the tests.

    o Please help your child take the first test on the fourth day after their last exposure. If the test is negative, your child can continue to attend school.

    o Please help your child take the second test on the fifth day after exposure.

    · Your child may continue to attend school as long as your child receives negative test results both times and does not experience any symptoms of COVID-19. It is strongly recommended that anyone exposed to COVID wears a mask for 10 days from their last exposure.

    · If your child has COVID-like symptoms or feels ill at any point after receiving the home test, please have your child isolate and take home test.

    · If your child tests positive on either home test, you must notify your child’s school and your child must isolate for at least 5 days where Day 0 is the date of the positive test or the first day of symptoms, whichever is earlier.

    How do I use test kits distributed at school?

    All test kits come with printed instructions, please follow these instructions when administering the test. You can also check your test kit and watch a video on how to use your test kit. Videos in multiple languages can be found at https://www.schools.nyc.gov/HomeRapidTestKits.

    How do we stay healthy?

    Vaccination is the most important tool we have to protect ourselves from COVID-19. We strongly encourage the COVID-19 vaccination for all age-eligible students. 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 New Yorkers 5 years 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.

    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

  • Shelter-In 12.12.23 Community Notification

    Dear Parents and Guardians:

    The safety and well-being of every child and staff member at PS 64Q remains our highest priority. To this end, we are sending you this notice pertaining to the safety of our students. On 12/12/23, at approximately 2:45pm our school executed a shelter-in that was subsequently lifted at approximately 2:55pm.

    The incident that necessitated this action included alleged gun shots fired near the vicinity of our school building.  Our Building Response Team was activated immediately, and its members were employed to address the situation. Ultimately, the Building Response Team verified  the noise as firecrackers. A garbage can in the playground was also lit on fire. Once it was verified,  it was safe to lift the shelter-in and resume normal school operation. Our staff followed the appropriate safety protocols, and the situation was resolved without further incident. More importantly, all our students, staff, and visitors were all safe.

    All schedules were resumed as normal.

    We assure you that every precaution was taken and will continue to be taken to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

    If you have any questions regarding this incident, please feel free to reach out to our staff at 718-845-8290.

     

    Sincerely,

    Ms. Mitchell
