New COVID-19 Case on the Jackie Robinson/Ebbets Field Middle School Campus
12/11/2020 10:40 AM
Dear Members of the Ebbets Field Middle School at 46 MCKEEVER PLACE Community:
Today we are writing to inform you that a member on the Jackie Robinson Campus (K320) tested positive for COVID-19. According to health guidelines, your child must stay home for 14 days following the date of possible exposure and should not return to school until 12/26/2020.
You may be contacted by the NYC Test + Trace Corps (T2) with information and updates. We know that this may be stressful, and we are here to support and guide you.
Below you will find guidance that reflects the expertise of the NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), the New York City Department of Education (DOE) and T2.
Here is what to do now:
Keep your child at home
● Until 12/25/2020, your child can leave home only to visit a medical provider, to get a COVID-19 test, or in the event of an emergency. It is important that your child stay home, even if they do not feel sick, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
● Your child’s teacher will reach out about transitioning your child to fully remote learning for the duration of quarantine.
● T2 strongly recommends you take your child for a COVID-19 test, whether or not they have symptoms. Testing is free at many sites and available regardless of immigration or insurance status. For information about testing, contact your child’s medical provider, call 311 or visit nyc.gov/covidtest.
● Even if your child receives a negative test result, your child still must stay home for 14 days for monitoring and to ensure illness does not develop.
The Ebbets Field Middle School building is temporarily closed. All instruction and learning is taking place remotely via Google Classroom. Click here for more information.
