Good evening P.S. 55 Families,

You gave us the challenge…now that distancing guidelines have changed for instruction, let’s figure out how to bring all our blended learning students back. Well we figured it out and all of our blended learning students will be attending 5 days a week starting Monday May 17th. Now we are asking all of you to step up and do your part.

Arrival and dismissal will continue at the current designated locations. Health Screenings and Temperature Checks will continue.

Please leave early enough so you can park legally. Do not double or triple park. Do not park in driveways. This creates a safety issue. Be kind and patient. All health and safety guidelines are still being followed. Health screenings should be out and visible. Do not leave until your child is cleared for entry. There will be more students arriving…be patient, be kind.

Blended remote learning will no longer take place. If your child is absent, there will not be any remote classroom to attend (Special arrangements will be made for student/students in quarantine).

When the weather is nice students might be eating their lunches outdoors. Please send your child with a beach towel/small blanket to sit on. These will be kept in a safe location in each classroom.

We are all very excited and it feels good knowing we will all be together as we end the 2020-2021 school year.

All remote D students will continue to learn remotely.

Thank you to all our teachers, custodians, SLT, and our building response team that helped make this possible.


Ms. Fishman and Mr. Giordano


NYC DOE Consent Form For COVID-19 Testing

 covid-19-testing-consent-form-with weekly consent - Click to download

What is this form?

We are seeking your consent to test your child for COVID-19 infection. The New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE), working with NYC Health + Hospitals and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, has partnered with laboratories and other providers to test NYC DOE students, teachers, and staff members for COVID-19 infection.

How often would you test my child?

We are arranging for our laboratory and provider testing partners to come to every school at least once a month to test some of the students and staff. If you consent, your child may be selected for testing on one or more of these occasions. In addition, your child may also be tested throughout the school year (1) in accordance with state and city mandates, such as weekly testing in schools in Yellow Zones, or (2) if they exhibit one or more symptoms of COVID-19, or (3) if they are a close contact of a student, teacher, or staff person with COVID-19 infection.

What is the test?

If you consent, your child will receive a free diagnostic test for the COVID-19 virus. The attached letter provides more information about the types of tests that may be used. Collecting a specimen for testing involves inserting a small swab, similar to a Q-Tip, into the front of the nose and/or collecting saliva (spit).

How will I know if my child tests positive?

If your child has a specimen collected for testing at school, we will send information home with them to let you know. COVID- 19 test results will generally be provided within 48-72 hours.

What should I do when I receive my child’s test results?

If your child’s test results are positive, please contact your child’s doctor immediately to review the test results and discuss what you should do next. You should keep your child at home and inform your child’s school. If your child’s test results are negative, this means that the virus was not detected in your child’s specimen. Tests sometimes produce incorrect negative results (called “false negatives”) in people who have COVID-19. If your child tests negative but has symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have concerns about your child’s exposure to COVID-19, you should call your child’s doctor. If you need help finding a doctor, call (844) NYC-4NYC.
