Parents please submit consent for our in-school COVID-19 testing program, and also to have eligible children vaccinated. It is also available on the Messages for Families page (with translations).
As you know, this is a critical way to keep our students and communities healthy – please continue encouraging families to fill out the consent form, (or submit using NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) at schoolsaccount.nyc).
Where and how do students submit proof of vaccination status?
Families are able to upload proof of students’ vaccination status at vaccine.schools.nyc. Proof of vaccination can be an image of a vaccination card, NYS Excelsior Pass, or another government record. Submitting this information will support New York City’s pandemic response and recovery efforts and help ensure that DOE schools and buildings remain safe places for all students and staff.
IT Help Desk And Resources For Remote Learning For Families
We would like to share the DOE’s IT HELP DESK AND RESOURCES FOR REMOTE LEARNING in English, Spanish and Chinese. This document outlines resources that are available to our families to support remote learning.
Parent University is a course registration and management system where NYC families can find free trainings on a wide range of topics. Parent University serves all families, from early childhood through adulthood, and seeks to educate and empower them as partners and advocates through free courses, resources, events, and activities.
A one-stop shop for student records and communications to parents, we have leveraged it to make the application and voting process more user-friendly and encourage maximum participation. Because NYCSA is the entry point for both applying and voting, it is imperative that all parents create an account and link all their children to it.

New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements.
As of June 13, 2019, public, private and parochial schools and child care programs in New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements. This law applies to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and to all child care settings. This legislation is in response to the measles outbreak and will help contain the spread of measles among unvaccinated students.
All prior religious exemptions granted to students are now invalid. Please see the Parent Immunization Letter from the DOE for more information.
All NYC students must meet the immunization requirements in order to attend school. You can review the immunization requirements online at schools.nyc.gov on the Immunizations page. Please review the Immunization Chart and Parent Immunization Letter to ensure that students are in compliance with requirements for school year 2019-20.
