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.
How do I submit consent?
Submitting consent to have your child tested for COVID-19 in school is quick and easy. Even if you have already submitted consent, we ask you to do so again to ensure your student has the latest consent form on file. There are two easy ways to submit:
1) Fill out the form online using a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) at mystudent.nyc.
2) Print and sign the attached form and bring it to your child’s school on the first day they are back in the school building.
What happens if I don’t submit consent?
You must submit consent by the day that your child returns to your school building; this is the due date, and we need all students to participate.
