    DOE Fall 2022 Guidance

    COVID-19 Guidance

    This guidance provides best practice considerations for schools for the 2022-2023 school year to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19 among students and staff.

    • Vaccination: Vaccination is the best way to reduce COVID-19 risk. Encourage up to date COVID-19 vaccination for everyone six months or older.
      • Visit the Vaccine Finder page(Open external link) or call 877-829-4692 to find a location near you.
      • Up to date includes boosters for everyone who is eligible and additional primary shots for some immunocompromised people. See At-A-Glance COVID-19 Vaccination Schedules (cdc.gov)(Open external link).
      • Vaccination Requirements:
        • Vaccination is still required for all visitors entering school buildings
          • At the beginning of the school year and as needed, families of birth to 5 children (3-K/Pre-K, Infants and Toddlers) are able to enter the program as they may need additional transitional support. Once children are more comfortable it is strongly recommended that family access is limited to only necessary situations.
        • Vaccination is still required for all DOE employees
        • Vaccination is still required for other individuals who work in DOE buildings
        • Vaccination is no longer required to participate in high-risk extracurricular activities (band, orchestra, chorus, musical theatre, dance/dance team, marching band, cheerleading, step teams, flag teams, school dances) including high-risk PSAL sports (football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, lacrosse, stunt, and rugby). 
        • Vaccination is not required for children under the age of 2
    • Daily Health Screener:
      • No longer required to enter school buildings.
    • Stay home if sick: Students and staff should stay home if they show any symptoms of COVID-19 or other illnesses and get tested for COVID-19. 
    • Isolate if COVID-19 positive: Students and staff who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate for 5 days and can return to school on day 6 if they have no symptoms or symptoms are improving. The should wear a mask until day 10 after symptom onset or date of positive test, whichever is earlier. Masks may be removed during this period if the person has received two negative rapid tests 48 hours apart.
      • Children who are younger than age 2 or anyone that cannot consistently and correctly wear a mask can return to a child care program on Day 6 if symptoms are resolving and they have been fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicine.
      • These cases should be reported to their school or program so they can be reported into the Situation Room for exposure notifications.
    • Get tested if exposed to COVID-19: Students and staff who are exposed to COVID-19 should get tested.
      • These individuals should receive home tests from their school and take two tests, at least 24 hours apart on day 4 and day 5 of their exposure. All exposed individuals should monitor for fever and other COVID-19 symptoms for 10 days after their exposure. If symptoms begin, they should not attend school and should isolate and get tested for COVID-19 again right away. 
    • Testing:
      • Starting the first day of school, schools will offer home test kits to those with a potential in-school exposure and those with symptoms
      • In addition, each staff and student will receive 4 tests per month to take home. These tests can be used by school families for testing due to symptoms, exposures, high-risk activity (such as travel and large gatherings), and can give staff and students immediate results.
      • In-school PCR surveillance testing will not be a part of the 2022-23 school year.
      • CBO programs will be able to pick up test kits at their assigned distribution hub.
    • Situation Room:
      • Schools and programs will be required to report positive cases of COVID-19 to the situation room
      • The Situation Room will provide schools and programs with standardized communications for their communities and will notify communities of cases in their schools or programs through daily email and the Daily COVID map.
      • The Situation Room will answer questions from schools, programs and district personnel related to COVID protocols by phone and email and will escalate concerns from schools.
      • The Situation Room will run Monday-Friday, 7:00 am - 5:00 pm.
        • Subject to change with caseload as determined by CH and DOE leadership.
      • Refer to the Situation Room page of the infohub for the most up-to-date information.

      • Students and staff, regardless of vaccination status, should wear a mask when:
        • Returning to school on the sixth day after testing positive for COVID-19, through day 10 after symptom onset or date of positive test, whichever is earlier, including when traveling on a school bus. Masks may be removed during this period if the person has received two negative rapid tests 48 hours apart.

    Dear PS 335 School Community, Parent & Guardians,

    As we are still in process of mitigating the contraction of COVID 19 as well as ensuring the highest degree of safety for our students and staff, the following protocols have been implemented.  As you are aware, the building is co-located with PS 335 Elementary School and MS 898 Middle School.  The responsibility of ensuring the safety of all students in both schools falls on both administrations.  However, the policies described in this letter are specifically for PS 335 Elementary School.

     

    The  policy for arrival and dismissal will be as follows:

    Arrival: 

    -All students will enter the school building through the main entrance located at 130 Rochester Ave.

    -To alleviate congestion and to ensure that all safety precautions are actively being implemented during this very active time, parents will drop off students at the main entrance front door located at 130 Rochester Ave.  

    -All students will be permitted to enter the building, with 3K/Pre-K and Kindergarten students  receiving support by school staff members to walk a few feet to the auditorium and be received by their teachers.  

     

    Dismissal:

    3K/Pre-K/ & Kindergarten students will be dismissed from Exit 5 the auditorium entrance located in the back school yard at 2:20 PM.

    Grades 1-5 will be dismissed from Exit 4 located in the back school yard.  Students will be escorted to a designated line space in the school yard from which parents can pick up their children.

     

    School Visitor Policy

    All visitors must show proof of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination to enter a DOE school building. Visitors do not include students attending school or school related activities in a DOE school building.

    Effective Monday, October 17th, visitors who require support in the main office will be allowed to enter the building with proper ID and proof of vaccination.  Visitors will be escorted to the office one family at a time to be supported.  If there are multiple visitors, they will be asked to patiently wait in the auditorium for their turn to be seen.  Due to staffing constraints the office will be open between the hours of 9:00 and 10:30AM  in the morning & from at 1:15-2:20 PM.  If parents need an alternate time, please contact the school to make an  appointment.

    Acceptable proof of vaccination is one of the following:
