Daily Arrival and Dismissal at YCS for 2022-23

We thank you in advance for your cooperation with our necessary arrival and dismissal procedures. Every procedure is in place to ensure the health and safety of all members of our community.

Official School Hours- 8:20am-2:40pm

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures will be shared with families prior to the first day of school. 

Daily Health Screenings

To ensure that students do not report to school if they have or potentially may have COVID-19 or are feeling ill, a health screening, including a temperature check, must be completed by all students and visitors before entering NYCDOE school facilities. Oral thermometers will be provided to all blended learner students’ families. This screening should be completed at home and must be completed each day. Students and visitors can complete the health screening in the following ways:

Online Health Screening Tool: NYCDOE families/students are encouraged to use the online health screening tool https://healthscreening.schools.nyc/ pre-screen themselves before entering a NYCDOE building.

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 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.

Any person who needs to complete the health screening in-person will undergo a temperature check.

If families are unable to pre-screen their child(ren) at home using either the online tool or paper questionnaire, families will need to complete their child’s screening in-person at the school building prior to their child’s entry.
