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.
Every year, all parents, teachers, students in grades 6-12 and select school support staff take the NYC School Survey. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of their school community think about the learning environment at their school. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.
Families should enter “f” followed by their child’s nine-digit Student Identification (OSIS) Number to access the survey. Note that “f” must be lowercase. Families can find their child’s Student Identification Number on their report card, student ID card, or New York City Schools Account (NYCSA).
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.

I am motivated by a shared purpose and relentless commitment to putting children and their needs at the center of our work. As a community, we will continue to embark on our shared mission to develop the academic, social and economic growth of all students so they become self-motivated, intellectual, and socially engaged world citizens.
During these challenging times with so many unknowns, we will continue to work to re-envision a multitude of ways to accelerate learning and instruction while advancing equity for all. Currently, we are working on new ways to provide safe educational opportunities while respecting the social distancing and health guidelines established during this pandemic. I look forward to partnering with families as equals, including voices and positive input from staff in ways to continue to provide a safe, healthy, inclusive, rigorous, and culturally relevant instruction to every scholar either in person, blended, or entirely remote.
