HEALTH & SAFETY
The health and safety of students and staff are of the utmost priority when considering reopening schools.
This guidance has been developed collaboratively with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), and Health + Hospitals.
The key tenets of NYCDOE’s plan align to CDC and New York State Department of Health guidance on school reopening. In addition to these public health protocols, we are prioritizing mental health, social-emotional learning and trauma-informed supports for all schools.
