 Update for Families_November 18 2020(1).pdf 

New! New York City DOE will provide testing for COVID-19 in every public school. You can provide consent for random in-school testing through your New York City School Account (NYCSA), rather than on paper. Here is how (if you have not yet returned your form):

  1. Login into your New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) by going to: the email and password that you provided to your student’s school when signing up. 
  2. When you sign in, you will receive a pop up message letting you know that you can now complete the consent form.
  3. You can read more about COVID testing on that page and choose “consent” or “deny” for each of your students.
  4. You will then click “Update Now” at the bottom of the page.
