DOE Homecoming 2021 Health and Safety

Please read Principal Sichenze's letter on PS 102's Emergency Readiness Initiatives:  GRP Letter to Parents 2.doc 
Updated COVID-19 School Health Policy: September 27, 2021

Consistent with CDC guidance, the DOE has updated the COVID-19 School Health Policy, first shared in Chancellor Porter’s August 26 letter, “Homecoming Health and Safety Guide.” The school health policy revisions include:   
  • A student who is exposed to an infected student in the classroom will not have to quarantine, if both students were properly wearing a face covering and maintained at least three feet of distance from one another.
  • All unvaccinated students who are designated as close contacts and who remain asymptomatic during quarantine may return to school eight (8) days after the last day of exposure with a lab-confirmed negative COVID result from a test taken five (5) days or later, after exposure.    

Please read this brochure to familiarize yourself with DOE Health and Safety procedures put in place for Fall 2021.

Family Income Inquiry Form - Please complete today!

Please complete your Family Income Inquiry Form online today at  Our school is listed as 20K102. This form is used across the state to determine if your child qualifies for free or reduced price lunch. In the last several years, all NYC DOE schools have qualified for universal free lunch.  The form is also used to determine Federal Title I funding.  Each year we are close to the border of qualifying at 60%.  Last year we did not qualify, but we get a new chance each year. 


You only need to complete one form per family for all children in NYC Public School. We ask for 100% of our families to complete the form so that we have a chance to qualify for next year. It is almost one million dollars in funding.  Please include all financial information and add all family members living in the household.  If you have a high income and are sure you would not qualify - please complete the form anyway - you have an option to check off that you do not qualify/will not be providing financial information.  If you have any questions on this form, please contact Ms. Sheri at Thanks!
