Come learn with us, safely.
Bank Street has developed strong health and safety policies that are aligned with guidelines from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the local Department of Health and informed by feedback from a range of experts, including doctors, architects, and engineers. Additionally, our policies are in compliance with New York’s HERO Act standards to protect against airborne infectious diseases.
By implementing multiple layers of protection for children and staff, our plans will allow our educators to continue to foster meaningful learning experiences and help us preserve the health and safety of our community. These robust health and safety measures build on those from last year, which enabled us to remain open in-person for most of the school year and become a leader among New York City schools in how to operate safely. Moving forward, we will continue to refine our policies and improve our systems to maintain the well-being of our community for another year.
