  • 10 Day School Closure 1/12/21

    Subject: 10 Day Bldg Closure Due to Multiple Confirmed Cases


    Dear P.S. 31 - K at 75 MESEROLE AVENUE Families:


    I’m writing to inform you that following an initial 24 hour closure of our school building, the NYC Test + Trace Corps (T2) and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) have determined that the building must remain closed through 1/20/2021.


    Below you will find guidance that reflects the expertise of the DOHMH, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) and T2.


    What Happens Now?

    • The school building will remain closed through 1/20/2021, and all teaching and learning will continue remotely. Staff and students may return to school on 1/21/2021.
    • Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious.
    • Close contacts of the person who tested positive have been notified, and will continue their 10-day quarantine period. If additional close contacts are identified, they will also be instructed to quarantine for 10 days.

    How Do We Stay Healthy?

    Please remember to follow these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:  

    1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).
    2. Practice social distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not members of your household.
    3. Wear a face covering to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
    4. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.

    How can I stay updated?

    We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts, and proactively update you on any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting


    To help New Yorkers quarantine, the NYC Test + Trace Corps partners with community-based organizations to connect individuals to resources like food, medicine, and health care.  To connect with resources, you can call 1-212-COVID19 (212-268-4319).

    For additional information on COVID-19, visit or call 311.

  • Consent For Testing

    Mandatory in-school testing will happen weekly for a random selection of staff and students in all reopened school buildings. In order for your child to return to in-person learning, you must submit the consent form for in-school COVID-19 testing by the first day your child returns to their school building.3K, Pre-K, and Kindergarten students are excluded from random testing.

    • Submitting consent have your child tested for COVID-19 in school is quick and easy. If you have already submitted consent, we encourage you to do so again to ensure your student has the latest form on file. There are two easy ways to submit:
    • Fill out the form online using a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) (Open external link)
      • If you already have a NYCSA account linked to your student(s): Log in, click your student’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a dropdown menu appears, click “Consent Forms.” Read the page, and then choose the consent option at the end for your student.
      • If you do not already have a NYCSA account: You can create one right away! If you have an account creation code from your school, you can create a full account in approximately five minutes, and then provide consent as described above. If you do not have an account creation code from your school, you can still provide your consent right away by clicking “Manage Consent” under “COVID-19 Testing” and filling out your and your child’s information to provide consent.
    • Print and sign the form and bring it to your child’s school on the first day they are back in the school building. A printable form is attached.
