Breakfast is “Grab and Go” -all students will grab a breakfast bag and take it to their classroom to eat, the same as they did last year, in their classroom.

As per NYC regulations, all students must complete a Health Screener before entering PS101. The Health Screener is the same as last year and can easily be completed on your phone (HINT: Bookmark it for easy access). This year we do not need to take temperature checks at the school; parents are expected to take their child’s temperature at home.

NYCDOE REQUIRED FACE COVERINGS All staff, students, and visitors entering a New York City Department of Education (DOE) school building MUST wear a face covering in accordance with NYCDOE guidance. Face coverings must be worn both indoors and outdoors when on DOE school grounds, regardless of COVID-19 vaccine status. Acceptable face coverings include but are not limited to disposable surgical masks that cover both the mouth and nose.

What Types of Face Coverings Are Not Permitted on DOE Property?

  • Bandanas and neck gaiters are not permitted.
  • Face coverings with an exhalation valve or vent are not permitted as exhalation valves allow unfiltered exhaled air to escape to others.
  • Face coverings that completely cover or hide an individual’s face, such as ski masks, are not permitted.
  • Unless otherwise approved by school administration, clear face shields cannot be worn unless accompanied by a face covering.

School Safety and Early Pick-up

Dear PS 101 Families-

Due to safety protocols and staff assignments, if you need to pick up your child early for a doctors appointment, etc, you must do so before 2pm. Additionally, you must have a valid reason for taking your child out of school early. Please do your best to schedule any and all appointments after school hours.

Any parents who arrive to pick up their child after 2pm will be asked to wait for normal dismissal as we will not have staff to assist.
