HealthComments Off on Weekly COVID testing at PS 58
The testing team will visit our school each week. Students in grades 1 to 5, and staff, will be selected randomly for COVID testing. Make sure you have given permission for your child to be tested through your NYCSA at www.mystudent.nyc.
Parents of students who were tested will bring home a letter explaining how to obtain test results. If a student tests positive, their parent will be notified directly and quarantine instructions will be communicated. If any of a student’s close school contacts test positive, parents will be notified and will receive instructions for quarantine.
Students who are tested will bring home a letter with instructions on how to obtain their results. If you have provided the DOE with an email address, you will usually be notified by email. If your child needs to quarantine, you will receive a call.
