Please see the letter from the NYCDOE Situation Room below. The class associated has been quarantined and parents notified. I am awaiting next steps from the Dept of Health to if PS 101 will remain open or be temporarily closed which is based on if the positive cases have a connection.
Greetings PS 101 Families,
As you may know, your school building took part in the COVID-19 In-school Testing Program . This message is to notify you that at least one member of your school community received a positive test result.
The DOE’s COVID Response Situation Room was notified and a representative from the Test & Trace Corps will be in touch with you shortly to discuss next steps. We will be asking for additional information that will be used to identify the appropriate actions which may include quarantining members of the school community, or even a building-wide closure.
After the case is verified, families will be notified in the following order:
• During the hours of 7:00AM – 5:00PM, any verified COVID-19 case will be addressed in a daily email that indicates all COVID-19 related activity that occurred during the past 24 hours.
• After 5:00PM and before 7:00AM, any verified COVID-19 case will be communicated to families with a New York City School Account (NYCSA) via text and email alert immediately following principal(s) notification.
•Any verified COVID-19 case will be communicated to families with a New York City School Account (NYCSA) via text and email alert immediately following principal(s) notification.
