Updated Covid Protocols as of March 10, 2022

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I am pleased to confirm that we can ease some COVID-19 protocols at Icahn Charter School 3. This is a huge achievement and a milestone in the battle against COVID-19.  Here is what’s changing effective immediately, 

March 10, and what will remain the same:  


Face Coverings 

NEW: Effective March 7, face coverings will become optional, indoors and outdoors, at ALL Icahn school grounds and on school buses, for all K-8 students and staff with a few exceptionsPlease note that while wearing a face covering will no longer be required, anyone who chooses to wear a mask may continue to do so.

Social Distancing 

NEW: There are no requirements for social distancing in public spaces, including classrooms, cafeterias, and auditoriums, unless the person is returning from isolation. As per NYS guidance, those that are required to still wear face coverings due to returning from isolation should distance when they must remove their mask for eating. 

Frontline Health Screening and Temperature Checks

NEW: Will no longer be requirement for the Pelham Campus.

Visitor Policy 

NEW: A face covering is now optional for visitors.  

REMAINS:  All visitors wishing to enter DOE school buildings MUST continue to show proof of having at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccination, show identification, and complete a health screening form.  

Desk Dividers

NEW: Will no longer be required.

Student Vaccine Requirements 

REMAINS:  High-risk extracurricular activities will still require participants to be fully vaccinated. High-risk sports include football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, lacrosse (boys), stunt, and rugby. High-risk extra-curricular activities include chorus, musical theater, dance/dance team, band/orchestra, marching band, and cheerleading/step teams/flag team. 

Thank you for your continued support.
