Student Covid Testing Form
Regular COVID-19 testing provides school communities and public health experts with valuable information. This year, every school, first through twelfth grade, will have ten percent of their unvaccinated school population tested twice a month for ongoing random surveillance. Surveillance testing is aimed at determining the prevalence of COVID-19 in our schools and provides ongoing information to public health experts. Please note that students must submit a new COVID-19 testing consent form for the 2021-2022 school year to participate in the testing program. Please visit the DOE Covid Testing Website for more details (Open External Link).
- Submitting consent to have your child tested for COVID-19 in school is quick and easy. Please note-if you already submitted consent during the last school year or summer, you will need to do so again for the 2021-2022 school year. There are two easy ways to submit:
- Fill out the form online using a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA)(Open external link)
- If you already have a NYCSA account linked to your student(s): Log in, click your student’s name, click “Manage Account,” and then when a dropdown menu appears, click “Consent Forms.” Read the page, and then choose the consent option at the end for your student.
- You can download the paper form, fill it out and return it to school.
