Communications Around Possible Exposure and School Closure

The school will coordinate with local health officials and communicate to parents, faculty, staff (and students as age-appropriate) possible COVID-19 exposure and any related dismissal decisions.

The Director of Communications will coordinate with the Head and Associate Head of School and the Head Nurse to notify the school community via email and/or text message consistent with the school’s existing crisis communications procedures and with protocols as required by the NYC DOH. When communicating about possible COVID-19 exposure the school will maintain confidentiality of the student or staff member as required by law. All messaging will reiterate the school’s antidiscriminatory policies and include language to counter potential stigma and discrimination.
