Health Screening Procedures

NYCDOE families/students are encouraged to use the online health screening tool to pre-screen themselves before entering a NYCDOE building. Copies of the paper version are below. More information regarding this procedure can be found in the 9-21-20 Chancellor Update in the Parent Information section. Translated versions are now posted there as well.

  • Upon entering the school facility, families/students will be asked to provide the results of their screening either by showing the email on their smartphone or a printout of the results. Families should support students as needed with this online screening questionnaire and should ensure students have proper documentation for morning entry.
  • For students who travel via school bus, families must complete the screening, including checking their child’s temperature, prior to boarding a school bus to make certain that their child is well enough to ride on the bus and attend school. Bus personnel will not be conducting screenings of children prior to boarding the bus. School site designated staff will be checking for completion of student health screening at entry. Students who lack the screening clearance will need to be supported in completing this screening process at the school, particularly young children.
  • For morning student drop off, every effort should be made to ensure that student health screenings are completed prior to families dropping off their children to school, especially for our younger students.
