Emergency Contact Card
It is extremely important that P.S.110Q has the current, correct information for contacting parents, guardians or persons in parental relations, at all times – especially during the school day. It is the responsibility of Parent/Guardian to see that the Blue Emergency Contact Card, which is kept on file in the main office, is completely filled out and to date. Notify the school in writing of any changes so that we can update official Department of Education forms and databases.
NYC DOE Consent Form For COVID-19 Testing
We are so excited to welcome you back into our school building! As we begin this new school year, the health and safety of all students and staff remains our top concern. That’s why many things in our school buildings will look different this year, from face masks to physical distancing in every classroom to disinfecting every school, every night. We are taking all of these steps to ensure that our schools remain safe, our students and staff stay healthy, and that you feel confident sending your children for in-person learning.
Today we are writing to ask for your help with another important element of our health and safety work: testing our students and staff for COVID-19. Keeping school buildings open depends on helping us stay aware of and take immediate action to address COVID-19 concerns in our buildings. That’s why we have partnered with NYC Health + Hospitals, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and the NYC Test & Trace Corps to arrange for testing of NYC DOE students and staff for COVID-19 infection. In order for us to administer a COVID-19 test to your child, we need your consent. We strongly encourage you to sign and return the consent form, available below, as soon as possible.
Monthly testing of randomly selected staff and students is a vital part of our efforts to prevent COVID-19 transmission in our buildings, because it helps identify positive COVID-19 cases when symptoms are not present. As with other health and safety measures we are requiring to keep our staff and students safe, the success of this testing initiative relies on the partnership and cooperation of staff and students.
Health Screening Questionnaire
To enter our building you must fill out the Health Screening Questionnaire by the Department of Education. All staff, students and guests must complete their individual screening using the web tool or submitting a printed copy. Available in different languages.
Learning Bridges Program
Please complete this survey to express interest in the Learning Bridges program, which will provide child care options for children from 3-K through 8th grade this fall for days when they are not in school buildings.
As the New York City Department of Education resumes in-person schooling this fall, most schools and sites will operate on a blended learning model. This will include some in-person services for a portion of the week and reduced class sizes in accordance with social distancing guidance.
The information collected in this survey will be used to guide the City's planning for the Learning Bridges program. Families can expect more information about a potential placement in the coming weeks.
Please note: programs will become available on a rolling basis through the start of school.
Learn at Home App for DOE-Issued iPads
A new app, called Learn at Home, is now available on all DOE-issued iPads. The Learn at Home app is helpful in supporting students’ remote-learning needs—giving parents, students, and staff the ability to stay connected and informed through quick access to student accounts, other learning apps and technical support.
The app provides students with links to all the tools they need to attend class, complete assignments, and track their progress. The Learn at Home app features include:
Student apps in one place;
Easy access to schedules and homework;
Easy-to-find links to DOE tech support;
Additional learning resources by grade level; and
A notification system for DOE news and information.
Note that the Learn at Home app is only available on DOE-issued iPads at this time. Please encourage your students to access the app on their DOE-issued iPads. Students who enabled app notifications on their devices can receive updates about DOE news and information.
For questions, email LearnAtHome@schools.nyc.gov.
