Good Afternoon AmPark Family,
Test & Trace has determined that more time is needed to investigate the multiple cases of COVID-19 in our building campus community. Our building closure has been extended for an additional 24 hours to conduct that investigation, through 3/9/21. Classes tomorrow, March 9th, will again be all remote while our building remains closed. Please see the letter generated for our campus by the Situation Room, attached here.
We know what a hardship this is for our families and students. Should there be any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email me directly at email@example.com.
Thank you and please be well,

Dear AmPark Neighborhood School 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 for the health and safety of our school community, the building must remain closed through 3/9/2021.
Below you will find information on next steps. The guidance below reflects the expertise of the DOHMH, T2, and the New York City Department of Education (DOE).
What Happens Now?
● The school building will remain closed through 3/9/2021, and all teaching and learning will continue remotely.
● 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.
Please remember to follow the “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:
We will continue to closely follow directions from public health experts, and stay in close contact about any measures we are taking. To ensure we can reach you via text and email, please create a New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) as soon as possible by visiting schools.nyc.gov/nycsa.
For additional information on COVID-19, visit schools.nyc.gov/coronavirus or call 311.
