  • Positive Case



    Subject: Confirmed Case of COVID-19 but NO exposure to School Community


    Dear P.S. 031 Samuel F. Dupont at 75 MESEROLE AVENUE Community:

    Today we are writing to inform you that on 6/11/2021, a member of our school community tested positive for COVID-19. Upon investigation, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the NYC Test & Trace Corps (T2) have concluded that there has been NO EXPOSURE to the school community because the person was NOT at school while infectious.

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

    How do we stay healthy?

    Please remember to follow these “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 reduce the spread of COVID-19
    4. Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer; clean frequently touched surfaces regularly; 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 these resources, you can call 1-212-COVID19 (212-268-4319).

    For additional information on COVID-19, visit or call 311.  Thank you for your cooperation. Health and safety will always come first in New York City public schools, no matter what.

  • Message for parents

    An update regarding school opening for September. 

    PS 31 Samuel F. Dupont

    Every year, all parents, teachers and select school support staff take the NYC School Survey. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of their school community think about the learning environment at their school. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.

    Take the 2020-21 NYC School Survey NOW!

    Families should enter “f” followed by their child’s nine-digit Student Identification (OSIS) Number to access the survey. Note that “f” must be lowercase. Families can find their child’s Student Identification Number on their report card, student ID card, or New York City Schools Account (NYCSA).

    All completed surveys will get a homework pass. Please take a screenshot of your completed survey and email it to and attach the screen shot and your child's name and class.
