EVCS Weekly, Friday, September 24

Dear EVCS Parents and Guardians,

Week 2 was energized! We hope everyone is getting settled, organized and feeling good about coming to school.  Remember to write your child’s names, class, and school on personal belongings that are near and dear, we are setting up a lost and found bin to live in the lobby.

There are important forms we need everyone to complete, if you have done them already, thank you. If not,  we need everyone to do so. We are sharing the links again below and thank you in advance for taking the time to fill them out.

  1. Emergency Contact Blue Cards 
  2. Residency Questionnaire 
  3. Media Release Form 
  4. Income Inquiry Form
    – If needed, info Letters are in MyStudent.NYC.
    – Our DBN is 01M315.
    – If you need your child’s OSIS # please ask their teacher, or the office. Paper copies were sent home to most families, but the preferred method is via the electronic link above
  5. Covid Consent
    – Log into your MyStudent.NYC account and update your consent
    – At the top right, click “Manage Account”

Home Devices & Internet Access
In the event of a school closure, we want all students to be ready to learn online. Please make sure you have wifi and a working device to access google classroom. If you currently have a DOE or EVCS device on loan, please make sure it is up and running. If you are in need of a device, please reach out to James.

Daily Health Screening
Everyone must complete the Health Screening Form and take their child’s temperature before leaving for school prior to entering the school yard each day. If you need a thermometer, please let me know!

COVID Testing
COVID testing is a crucial part of our layered approach to keeping our community safe and healthy.  Every week the DOE will be conducting random testing of 10% of our 1st-5th graders who have provided consent.  If your child is in the 1st through 5th grade and you have not already done so, please give your consent now at your child’s NYC Schools Account.  But regardless of your child’s grade, we strongly encourage all of our families to have their children tested regularly.  Please note that testing is free and easy at NYC Health and Hospitals locations.
