  • Schoolwide Notification of Positive Case - 1/6/22

    Dear World View High School at 100 WEST MOSHOLU PARKWAY SOUTH Community:

     

    I am writing to notify you that members of our school community have tested positive for COVID-19 and may have exposed others while at school. Students who were in the same class as someone who tested positive were given a 

    COVID home test kit to be able to test at home.

     

    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?

    ● Your child will come home with a COVID test kit today. The kit contains two tests.

    ○ Please take the first test on the day they receive the home test. If the test is negative, your child can continue to attend school.

    ○ Please take the second test on the fifth day after exposure.

    ● Your child may continue to attend school as long as your child receives negative test results both times and does not experience any symptoms of COVID-19.

    ● If your child has COVID-like symptoms or feels ill, please have your child isolate and take the 2nd home test.

    ● If your child tests positive on either home test, you must notify your child’s school and your child must isolate for 10 days.

    ● If your child is in 3-K or Pre-K, your child must quarantine for 10 days since their last exposure 1/3/2022. Children who shared space with the individual who tested positive may test out of quarantine in order to return to their classrooms on the eighth day of quarantine. In order to do so, children should take a COVID-19 test on their fifth day of quarantine in order to re-enter class on the eighth day.

     

    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).

     

    Sincerely, 

    Ms. Cramer

  • NYC DOE Family Letter - 1/5/22

    Dear Families,

     

    It’s an honor to serve with Mayor Eric Adams as I become your new Schools Chancellor—and to welcome your children back to school after their much-deserved winter break. The health and safety of our children, families,

    and staff is our highest priority. I hope you received the recent letter outlining the new health and safety measures we have put in place to ensure that your children remain safe and that our schools remain open. We continue to

    encourage families to get tested, get vaccinated, and consent to in-school testing. If you missed the letter, you can read it at schools.nyc.gov/messagesforfamilies.

     

    As a parent and life-long educator, I believe that every young person is filled with brilliance, promise, and gifts. I believe that all children deserve a strong academic foundation that prepares them to graduate with an employable

    skill set. Equally important, they deserve the tools and support needed to be physically and emotionally healthy. 

     

    And as a proud New Yorker, born in Brooklyn, I know the difference an excellent educator and school can make in a child’s life. I will never forget the teacher at P.S. 161 in Brooklyn who transformed my life: Mrs. Mildred Scott. She taught me about Black history and culture. She also taught me that I had a responsibility to my community, a value reinforced by my parents. 

     

    I took those lessons with me to Queens, where I graduated from Hillcrest High School and then attended college. Now, I didn’t plan on becoming a teacher. In fact, I was a school safety officer for a year when I was bitten by the teaching bug. Wouldn’t you know it, I began my first teaching job at P.S. 167 in my old neighborhood on Eastern Parkway. From there, I became a founding principal at the Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice, and later at the Eagle Academy for Young Men, where I proved that a high-quality college preparatory education for young men of color can be provided in a public-school setting.

     

    In the more than 30 years I’ve been doing this work, I’ve learned a few things about education. I learned that the answers to how we improve the system exist in the hearts and minds of our teachers, principals, children, and

    families. I learned that you cannot create innovative and high-quality schools that serve all students without engaging the entire community. And so, in my first week as your Chancellor, I welcome your input and

    partnership as we work together to ensure that the nation’s largest school system also becomes the nation’s best school system.

     

    To achieve this goal, we will work on behalf of all our children–children from every neighborhood, and especially those who have been historically left behind. Children who are learning to speak English. Children with

    disabilities. Children who live in temporary housing. We will work day in and day out for all of our children, because they are all capable of thriving. This means giving every student the support, learning experiences, and resources to graduate from high school, attend college or learn a trade, get a great job, and become informed and engaged citizens.

     

    You can count on me to always be honest. I won’t sugarcoat it: we face enormous challenges, and we can only change a system as large as ours with an all-hands-on-deck approach. This is particularly true as we enter our

    third year of a pandemic that has required us to adapt to new ways of teaching and learning. This is where you, our families, come in. We want to reach every one of you and welcome you as partners in your children’s education. We want your input on the policies that affect your children. Over the coming months you will begin to see new and improved ways to communicate with our school system. We want to empower you to be advocates for your children, your schools, and your communities. We want to bring in our parents who are not typically engaged with the school system and elevate their crucial voices.

     

    I began this letter with my commitment to safety and I want to reassure you that we will do everything in our power to keep your children safe and our schools open, with as little disruption as possible. We owe your children nothing less. Thank you for your warm wishes and for your support as we lift all our students higher.

     

    Soaring high,

    David C. Banks

    Chancellor
