  • Health Screening Protocol for all students

    Online Health Screening Tool: 
    NYCDOE families/students are encouraged to use the online health screening tool to pre-screen themselves before entering a NYCDOE building.  This will begin for in-person learning on 9/29.
    Upon entering the school facility, families/students will be asked to provide the results of their screening either by showing the email on their smartphone or a printout of the results. 
    Families should support students as needed with this online screening questionnaire and should ensure students have proper documentation for morning entry. 
    For students who travel via school bus, Families must complete the screening, including checking their child’s temperature, prior to boarding a school bus to make certain that their child is well enough to ride on the bus and attend school. 
    Bus personnel will not be conducting screenings of children prior to boarding the bus. School site designated staff will be checking for completion of student health screening at entry. Students who lack the screening clearance will need to be supported in completing this screening process at the school, particularly young children. 
    For morning student drop off, every effort should be made to ensure that student health screenings are completed prior to families dropping off their children to school, especially for our younger students.
    Paper Copy of Health Screening Questionnaire: 
    • If students are not able to pre-screen using the online tool, schools must provide families with several copies of the health screening questionnaire so families can complete the questionnaire at home.
     • If staff are not able to pre-screen using the online tool, staff should print and complete the health screening questionnaire for completion on a daily basis at home. 
    • A printable version of the health screening questionnaire can be found at
