Updates for the

2020 - 2021 School Year

 

Covid Updates from PS 376

Updated 12/2/20

In order for your child to return to in-person learning, you must submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing by the first day your child returns to their school building. Testing will happen weekly for a random selection of staff and students in your child’s school. Given the ongoing fight against a citywide resurgence of COVID-19, this mandatory weekly testing for COVID-19 is a crucial part of our plan to keep all schools safe. Any student in grade 1 or higher returning to school buildings must submit a consent form for COVID-19 testing in school by their first day back in school buildings.

Para que su hijo regrese al aprendizaje en persona, debe enviar el formulario de consentimiento para la prueba COVID-19 en la escuela antes del primer día que su hijo regrese al edificio escolar. Las pruebas se realizarán semanalmente para una selección aleatoria de personal y estudiantes en la escuela de su hijo. Dada la lucha en curso contra un resurgimiento de COVID-19 en toda la ciudad, esta prueba semanal obligatoria para COVID-19 es una parte crucial de nuestro plan para mantener seguras a todas las escuelas. Cualquier estudiante en el grado 1 o superior que regrese a los edificios escolares debe presentar un formulario de consentimiento para la prueba COVID-19 en la escuela antes de su primer día de regreso en los edificios escolares.

NY STate Test Information

Updated 4/7/2021

NYS exams are usually administered to students in their classroom. This year, many students are learning remotely, but the New York State Education Department (NYSED) requires that exams must take place in-person in the school building. It  is not possible to administer state exams remotely. Therefore, we need to know whether you wish for your child to participate in this year’s State exams.

Los exámenes de NYS generalmente se administran a los estudiantes en su salón de clases. Este año, muchos estudiantes están aprendiendo de forma remota, pero el Departamento de Educación del Estado de Nueva York (NYSED) requiere que los exámenes se realicen en persona en el edificio de la escuela. No es posible administrar exámenes estatales de forma remota. Por lo tanto, necesitamos saber si desea que su hijo participe en los exámenes estatales de este año.

DOE DAILY

HEALTH SCREENING
FOR ENTRY

INTO PS 376

We are asking you to do your part by making sure your children have completed their health screenings (including temperature checks) before they enter school buildings. We encourage you to use our Online Health Screening Tool(Open external link) each day that your child is scheduled to attend in-person learning. 

  • When you do the screening at home, you or your child just need to provide the results of the screening either by showing the email on a smartphone or a printout of the results before entering the school building. All students will receive an oral thermometer in their first week of in-person instruction in case they need one to check their temperature.

  • If you or your child is not able to pre-screen using the online tool, you may use the Paper Health Screening Questionnaire and have your child bring the completed form to school and show it upon entry. Your school will provide you with printed copies so you can complete the questionnaire at home.

  • If you or your child forgets or is unable to pre-screen, someone will be available at your school's entrance to assist your child in completing the form and checking your child’s temperature.

DOE DIARIO EXÁMENES DE SALUD PARA ENTRADA EN LA PS 376

Le pedimos que haga su parte asegurándose de que sus hijos hayan completado sus exámenes de salud (incluidos los controles de temperatura) antes de ingresar a los edificios escolares. Le recomendamos que utilice nuestra herramienta de evaluación de la salud en línea (enlace externo abierto) todos los días en que su hijo tiene programado asistir al aprendizaje en persona.

  • Cuando realiza la evaluación en casa, usted o su hijo solo deben proporcionar los resultados de la evaluación, ya sea mostrando el correo electrónico en un teléfono inteligente o una copia impresa de los resultados antes de ingresar al edificio de la escuela. Todos los estudiantes recibirán un termómetro oral en su primera semana de instrucción en persona en caso de que necesiten uno para controlar su temperatura.

  • Si usted o su hijo no pueden realizar una prueba previa con la herramienta en línea, puede usar el Cuestionario de evaluación de salud en papel y pedirle a su hijo que traiga el formulario completo a la escuela y lo muestre al ingresar. Su escuela le proporcionará copias impresas para que pueda completar el cuestionario en casa.

  • Si usted o su hijo se olvidan o no pueden realizar una evaluación previa, habrá alguien disponible en la entrada de su escuela para ayudar a su hijo a completar el formulario y controlar la temperatura de su hijo.

CHANCELLOR RICHARD CARRANZA

PS 376 had the pleasure to welcome our new NYCDOE School Chancellor, Richard Carranza, this spring.  Chancellor Carranza toured the school, met with our students to discuss what they are learning, and greeted our staff and our PSA.  We look foward to working with the Chancellor and continuing to strive to provide the best learning opportunities for our school community.
