Good Afternoon AmPark Family,
The building closure has been extended due to multiple confirmed cases. It is my hope that this extension will prevent greater numbers in our community and make for a safer environment for all.
While the opening and closing is a hardship for many families, some families and students are facing additional challenges. If this is the case, please reach out to your teacher, our Parent Coordinator, our Guidance Counselor, or administration for support. We can coordinate a plan together for the needs that may arise for your child.
During the closure, please continue to report any confirmed cases as administration continues to report numbers to the Situation Room for their follow-up in preventing community spread.

Subject: 10 Day Bldg Closure Due to Multiple Confirmed Cases
Dear P.S. 95 - BRONX at 3961 HILLMAN AVENUE Families:
I’m writing to inform you that following an initial 24 hour closure of our school building, the NYC Test + Trace Corps (T2) and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) have determined that the building must remain closed through 1/24/2021.
Below you will find guidance that reflects the expertise of the DOHMH, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) and T2.
What Happens Now?
● The school building will remain closed through 1/24/2021, and all teaching and learning will continue remotely. Staff and students may return to school on 1/25/2021.
● Anyone with a positive COVID-19 test will not return to the school until they are no longer infectious.
● Close contacts of the person who tested positive have been notified, and will continue their 10-day quarantine period. If additional close contacts are identified, they will also be instructed to quarantine for 10 days.
How Do We Stay Healthy?
Please remember to follow these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:
