COVID-19 Testing for Students

Parents need to submit a Covid Testing Consent form for students in Grade 1 - 5 

Fill out the form online using a New York City Schools Account

If you already have a NYCSA account linked to your student(s): Log in, click your student’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a dropdown menu appears, click “Consent Forms.” Read the page, and then choose the consent option at the end for your student.


All students will attend school 5 days a week in person.

Remote Learning Instructions

We ask all families to ensure that their child has access to Google Classroom and that they understand how to access the site independently.
