What’s Happening in NYC Public Schools?

 

January 28, 2022 


Under our “Stay Safe, Stay Open” plan, our schools have remained open and among the safest places for young people to be during the pandemic, including during the Omicron surge. We are determined to build on that progress. This Family Update provides important information about our latest health and safety policies, which will take effect on Monday, January 31. 

 

Updated COVID-19 Health and Safety Policies

 

Printable Decision Charts 

 

We recognize that families need clear information to help them make decisions. For a visual guide to the policies explained in detail below, visit schools.nyc.gov/2021health for two charts that outline the steps you should take if your child feels sick, was exposed to COVID-19, or tested positive for COVID-19: 

 

  • COVID-19 Chart for Early Childhood Families (LYFE, 3-K, Pre-K, or EarlyLearn)
    • COVID-19 Chart for Kindergarten–12 students

 

Shortened Isolation Period for COVID-19 Cases

 

The CDC and DOH also shortened the quarantine period for students exposed to COVID-19. Students in grades kindergarten or higher will continue to use home test kits to stay in school after an in-school exposure. If your child is NOT fully vaccinated and was exposed to COVID-19 outside of a school setting, your child must quarantine for at least 5 days; this is reduced from 10 days. If your child is fully vaccinated and was exposed outside of school, your child can continue to attend school so long as they do not have any symptoms. All students are required to wear masks while on school grounds, and students returning from isolation or quarantine on Day 6 must wear a well-fitting mask such as a KN95, KF94, or a cloth mask over a disposable surgical mask on Days 6–10.

 

Shortened Quarantine for COVID-19 Exposure

The CDC and DOH also shortened the quarantine period for students exposed to COVID-19. Students in grades kindergarten or higher will continue to use home test kits to stay in school after an in-school exposure. If your child is NOT fully vaccinated and was exposed to COVID-19 outside of a school setting, your child must quarantine for at least 5 days; this is reduced from 10 days. If your child is fully vaccinated and was exposed outside of school, your child can continue to attend school so long as they do not have any symptoms. All students are required to wear masks while on school grounds, and students returning from isolation or quarantine on Day 6 must wear a well-fitting mask such as a KN95, KF94, or a cloth mask over a disposable surgical mask on Days 6–10.

Children who are at least 2 years old in LYFE, 3K, and Pre-K classrooms only need to quarantine for 5 days if they are symptom-free, able to wear a well-fitting mask through Day 10, and have a negative COVID-19 test from a health care provider on Day 5 OR two negative home test results from Day 4 and Day 5.

Children under 2 years old in LYFE classrooms must still quarantine for up to 10 days but can return to school on Day 8 if they are symptom-free AND have a negative COVID-19 test from a health care provider on Day 5 or later. Home tests are not considered valid for this age group unless administered at the direction of a health care provider.

Any child in a LYFE, 3-K, or Pre-K classroom that was exposed but does NOT get tested for COVID-19 can return after completing a 10-day quarantine.

For an unvaccinated student of any age who is exposed to COVID-19 in the home, if the COVID-positive household member and student are staying in the same home, the student must continue to quarantine for at least 5 additional days after the household member’s isolation period has ended.

Please note: if your child has recovered from COVID-19 in the last 90 days, they do not need to quarantine following an exposure and may continue to attend school unless they develop COVID-like symptoms.

 

COVID-19 Home Test Kits

 

Children ages 2 and up who are exposed to COVD-19 at school will receive two tests. The test kits come with printed instructions that you should follow when administering the test. You can also watch videos in multiple languages on how to use your test kit at schools.nyc.gov/HomeRapidTestKits.

Please note: if your child has recovered from COVID-19 in the last 90 days, they will not receive a test kit and may continue to attend school unless they develop COVID-like symptoms.

 

Remote Instruction for Students Isolating Due to COVID-19

Any student who tests positive for COVID-19 and is isolating at home is entitled to asynchronous remote instruction and access to office hours with a teacher based on availability. Your school will provide details about how children in those circumstances can access remote instruction and office hours.

 

Keeping Our Communities Healthy

Daily Health Screener

Starting Monday, January 31, the daily health screening form will be revised to reflect new health policies and options for those recently recovered from COVID-19. Please continue to help your child complete the health screener every day before coming to school.

 

Face Covering Reminder

 

The DOE’s face covering policy continues to be in effect. All students over the age of two years old must wear a face covering when entering a DOE building unless they have a medical exemption. Face coverings must be worn both indoors and outdoors when on DOE grounds, regardless of COVID-19 vaccine status.

 

The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) recommends that all individuals should consider wearing two masks or a higher-grade mask, such as a KN95 or KF94. Using a cloth mask over a disposable mask improves the fit and adds additional protective layers.

 

COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shots

Students ages 12 and older who received their second Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at least five months ago can now receive booster shots to further strengthen their immunity against COVID-19 and help safeguard our community against the virus. Additionally, children ages 5 to 11 with certain immunocompromising conditions who received their Pfizer-BioNTech initial vaccine series at least 28 days ago are now eligible for a booster shot. The CDC and DOH strongly encourage all eligible New Yorkers to get their booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, which is free and widely available. To find a vaccine site near you, visit vaccinefinder.nyc.gov.

 

If you have questions about booster shots, talk to your health care provider or call 311

 

 

紐約市公立學校有什麽新情況

 

2022  1  28 

根據「保持安全,保持開放」計劃,我們的學校都在疫情期間(包括在奧密克戎疫潮時)繼續開放,也是青少年 的最安全地方之一。我們決心繼續在這一進程的基礎上發展。這份「家庭最新通報」提供關於即將在 1 月 31 日 (星期一)生效的最新健康和安全政策的重要資訊。

 

最新的新冠病毒健康和安全政策

「決定怎樣做」圖表的打印版

 

我們知道家庭需要清晰的資訊,這有助於他們作出決定。關於以下詳細解釋的政策的一則視覺指引,請參看 schools.nyc.gov/2021health 列出的兩張圖表。如果您子女感到不適,曾與新冠病毒發生接觸,或者新冠病毒檢 測呈陽性,這些圖表説明您應採取的相應措施: · 應對新冠病毒的圖表:適用於幼教計劃家庭(LYFE、3 歲幼兒班、學前班或 EarlyLearn) · 應對新冠病毒的圖表:適用於幼稚園至 12 年級學生。

 

縮短了新冠病例的隔離期

根據疾控中心(CDC)和紐約州健康廳(DOH)的指引,教育局(DOE)縮短了新冠檢測呈陽性的幼稚園至 12 年級學生的隔離期限, 10 天減爲 5 。這就是説,如果您的子女新冠檢測呈陽性,且就讀於幼稚園或更高年 級,倘若他們沒有症狀或者症狀在改善,並且在不施用退燒藥物的情況下已經 24 小時不發燒,則可在第 6 天返 校。結束隔離之後在第 6 天返校的學生必須在第 6 天至第 10 天戴著尺寸合適的口罩(如 KN95、KF94),或者 在用完即棄手術口罩之外再加戴一個布口罩。

 請注意,(任何年級)任何學生如果已完成隔離期,在獲准返校之後毋須出示檢測陰性證明。

 

縮短了新冠病毒接觸情況的隔離期

CDC 和 DOH 也縮短了曾接觸新冠病毒的學生的隔離期限。爲了可在校内接觸之後仍繼續上學,幼稚園或更高年 級的學生將繼續使用家用檢測盒。如果您子女沒有完全接種疫苗,且在某個校外環境接觸到了新冠病毒,則您子 女必須至少隔離 5 天;這是從原來的 10 天縮短的。如果您子女已完全接種疫苗,且在某個校外環境接觸到了新 冠病毒,則您子女只要沒有出現任何症狀就可以繼續上學。所有學生凡在學校場地都必須佩戴口罩;結束隔離之 後在第 6 天返校的學生必須在第 6 天至第 10 天戴著尺寸合適的口罩(如 KN95、KF94),或者在用完即棄手術 口罩之外再加戴一個布口罩。

 

已至少 2 歲且在 LYFE歲幼兒班或學前班教室的兒童,如果沒有症狀,能夠一直到第 10 天都佩戴一個尺寸合 適的口罩,且在第 5 天獲得健康照護者提供的新冠檢測陰性結果或者在第 4 天和第 5 天獲得家用檢測劑的兩次陰 性結果,則只需要隔離 5 天。

 

不足 2 歲且在 LYFE 教室的兒童,必須仍最多隔離 10 天。但如果沒有症狀,並且在第 5 天或之後獲得健康照護 者提供的新冠檢測陰性結果,則可以在第 8 天返校。除非由一名健康照護者施用,否則家用檢測劑不被視爲對這 一年齡組的兒童有效。

 

任何在 LYFE、3 歲幼兒班或學前班教室的兒童,如果曾接觸病毒但沒有進行新冠病毒檢測,可在完成一個 10 天 隔離期限之後返校。

 

對於任何未經免疫接種的學生,若在家裏接觸了病毒,如果新冠病毒呈陽性的家庭成員和該學生處於同一住所, 則該學生必須在該家庭成員的隔離期已經結束之後繼續隔離另外至少 5 天。

 

請注意:如果您子女曾在過去 90 天之内染新冠病毒之後已康復,則除非出現新冠類似的症狀,他們毋須在某次接 觸之後進行隔離,並可以繼續上學。

 

新冠病毒家用檢測盒

 

2 歲及以上的兒童在學校接觸了新冠病毒,則會收到兩個檢測劑。檢測盒都印有說明,您應在進行檢測時遵循這 些說明。您還可以在該網站觀看如何使用該檢測包的視頻,有若干語言版本: schools.nyc.gov/HomeRapidTestKits

 

請注意:如果您子女曾在過去 90 天之内染新冠病毒之後已康復,則除非出現新冠類似的症狀,他們不會收到檢測 盒,並可以繼續上學。

 

為因新冠病毒而隔離的學生實行遠程教學

凡新冠檢測呈陽性並在家裏隔離的任何學生,都有資格獲得非同步的遠程教學,並根據教師的時間安排利用教師 的辦公時間。您的學校將提供有關細節,通知您在這些情況下如何參加遠程教學和利用辦公時間。

 

保障我們社區的健

每日健康篩查

從 1 月 31 日(星期一)起,每日健康篩查表將得到修訂,反映新的健康政策,並為剛從新冠症狀康復的人士提 供選擇。請繼續幫助您的子女每天在上學前填寫健康篩查表。

 

關於臉部遮蓋的提

教育局的臉部遮蓋政策繼續有效。所有兩歲以上的學生都必須在進入教育局樓宇時佩戴臉部遮蓋物,除非他們另 有一份醫療豁免。無論新冠接種狀況如何,凡在教育局場地時,無論室内室外,都必須佩戴臉部遮蓋物。

 

健康及心理衛生局(DOHMH)建議所有個人都應佩戴兩個口罩或者一個更高品質的口罩(如 KN95 或 KF94)。 在用完即棄口罩之外再加戴一個布口罩能改善合適度,並另外添加保護層。

 

新冠疫苗加强

12 歲和以上的學生,如果在至少五個月前已接種第二劑輝瑞-復必泰(Pfizer-BioNTech)疫苗,現在可以接種加 强劑。這將進一步加强其新冠病毒免疫力,並有助於保障我們的社區去對抗病毒。另外,5 歲至 11 歲的兒童,若 有某種免疫力受損症狀,如果已在至少 28 天之前接種輝瑞-復必泰(Pfizer-BioNTech)初始疫苗系列,現在有資 格接種加强劑。CDC 和 DOH 强烈鼓勵所有符合資格的紐約人接種新冠疫苗加强劑。該加强劑是免費的,並廣泛 提供。要找到您附近的檢測點,請到網站 vaccinefinder.nyc.gov

 

如果您對於加强劑有任何問題,請與您的健康照護者討論,或者致電 311。
