Principals Letter December 31st, 2020

December 31, 2021

Greetings, 

PS 20 will be open for in-person learning on Monday January 3rd.  All students and staff should follow guidance before entering the building. 

  • Staff & students should produce a negative COVID test, either PCR or rapid.  If you are unable to find a test, at home kits will be available each day during arrival in the PS 20 parking lot.  
  • Students will remain home if they have been exposed to family or friends who have tested positive for COVID.  
  • If a child is fully vaccinated and is returning, even after exposure, a vaccination card with both doses should be produced at arrival. All staff have recorded that they are fully vaccinated.

Each person entering the building on Monday should be wearing a face mask and fill out the health screening.  On the health screening form, there is also a link to “Consent to Testing.” Currently, several of our staff members have tested positive, so please be prepared that classes may have a sub or be split up the week of Jan 3rd.

If you have to report a student or are a staff member who is positive, please use this form:  https://forms.gle/EMNDZiniq2e4ucCS6

A remote option, while not offered by the city, is being developed by PS 20 for the month of January ONLY, and will be reassessed as we watch patterns and trends.  We will need a few days next week so please be patient and make sure the school has an updated email for families. We want to ensure that all students, regardless of program or classroom, have access to a remote option.

Saludos,

PS 20 estará abierta para aprendizaje en persona el lunes 3 de enero. Todos los estudiantes y el personal deben seguir las instrucciones antes de ingresar al edificio.

  • El personal y los estudiantes deben producir una prueba negativa de COVID, ya sea PCR o rápida. Si no puede encontrar una prueba, los kits para el hogar estarán disponibles todos los días durante la llegada en el estacionamiento de PS 20.
  • Los estudiantes permanecerán en casa si han estado expuestos a familiares o amigos que dieron positivo en la prueba de COVID.
  • Si un niño está completamente vacunado y regresa, incluso después de la exposición, se debe presentar una tarjeta de vacunación con las dos dosis durante la llegada a la escuela. Todo el personal ha registrado que están completamente vacunados.
