Our School is a Vaccination Site!

As we return to school during this first week, families should take two important actions:

  1. Get your children vaccinated if they are aged 12 and older
  2. Submit consent for COVID-19 testing
  3. Use the Health Screening Application for a daily health check in for your student.

Starting next week September 20th, from 7am-11am our school will be open for anyone to receive vaccinations.


If you are a New Yorker age 12 and up you can now receive a free COVID-19 vaccine at a school near you during the first week of school.

Vaccination is safe, free, and available regardless of immigration status. 

If you have a child who is at least 12 years old, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the New York City Department of Education strongly encourage you to make a vaccination appointment for them as soon as possible by visiting vaccinefinder.nyc.gov(Open external link).
