Dear P.S. 274 Kosciusko at 800 BUSHWICK AVENUE Family:


I am writing to notify you that a member or members of our school community have tested positive for COVID-19 and may have exposed others while at school.


Below you will find guidance on next steps that will help keep our school community healthy and safe. The information below reflects the expertise of the Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), Test & Trace Corp (T2), and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).

What Happens Now?


● Students and staff who shared classroom space with the individual who tested positive will receive at-home tests with guidance and directions.

● The Situation Room will monitor our school for any further interventions.

● Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious.

● All areas visited by the person with COVID-19 will be deep cleaned and disinfected.

● If your child is feeling sick, keep them at home.


How do we stay healthy?


Vaccination is the most important tool we have to protect ourselves from COVID-19. All New Yorkers age 5 or older are eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19. People who are between 5 and 17 years old are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine only; all older ages are eligible for all three vaccines. We encourage all eligible students to get vaccinated. Find a vaccine site today at https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/.There is no cost to be vaccinated.

Please remember to follow these important actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:


1. Stay home if sick (except to get essential medical care, including COVID-19 testing).

2. Wear a face covering to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

3. 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 schools.nyc.gov/nycsa.

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 schools.nyc.gov/coronavirus or call 311.


Sincerely,

MARITZA OLLIVIERRA JONES
