OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the The School for Human Rights is to develop the academic, social, and economic growth of all our students. Through our diverse rigorous curricula, community based programs, and extra curricula activities, students are challenged to become intellectually, self-motivated, and socially engaged world citizens.
To make vaccines as accessible as possible, pop-up vaccination sites will be at every DOE building serving students 12 years of age and older during the first week of school. For those programs with age-eligible students, Click HERE for the letter and consent form about this opportunity and important information about the process.
Vaccine vendors assigned by the NYC Vaccine Command Center will be available to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible students, families, and staff in the building on:
Monday, September 13 - 12:00 - 5:00PM
Tuesday, September 14 - 12:00 - 5:00PM
Wednesday, September 15 - 12:00 - 5:00PM
Friday, September 17 - 12:00 - 5:00PM
Sites will not operate on Thursday, September 16th in observance of Yom Kippur.

Protocol for Visitors
Upon entry to a Department of Education building, a visitor must sign in and show photo identification, proof of vaccination, completion of health screening, and the visitor must be wearing a face covering.
If the visitor is unable to comply with one of the four requirements above, the School Safety Agent will do the following:
Remind the visitor of the types of identification accepted, including the IDNYC.
Guardians who do not have acceptable photo identification shall not be denied access to their student’s school. Where acceptable photo identification cannot otherwise be made available and there is no other reason to deny access, the principal or designee (e.g., the parent coordinator), must be contacted. The principal/designee must then escort the parent to the office they are visiting and, following the meeting, escort the parent out of the building.
Proof of Vaccination
Remind the visitor of the types of vaccine records that are accepted.
Health Screening Clearance
Provide a paper copy of the health screening form and take the visitor’s temperature.
Provide the visitor with a face covering.
Keeping school buildings open depends upon awareness of and immediate action on any COVID-19 concerns in our buildings. To do this, we need students and staff in our buildings to get tested! That’s why we’re instituting mandatory random weekly testing in all reopened school buildings.
Please visit Coronavirus Updates to learn important precautions and support regarding COVID-19. The health and safety of all of our students continues to be our first priority in the wake of the evolving situation around the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in New York City. We encourage everyone in our school communities to listen to facts and not respond to fear.
All DOE employees, students, families, and visitors seeking to enter DOE buildings must complete a health screening before entering DOE facilities. This health screening must be completed on each day of arrival and results will reset at midnight of each day. Upon entering the facility you will be asked to provide the results of your screening either by showing your phone or a printout of the results.
