COVID-19 Information

Rodeph Sholom School believes that in-person school is best for most students academically and socially, even with the adjustments we have made to make in-person school as safe as possible.

Our day to day operations incorporate guidance from the New York State Education Department, New York State Department of Health, New York City Department of Health, CDC guidelines, and New York State Reopening Guidance for Religious and Independent Schools.

Below is a detailed outline of our current procedures and protocols.

Thank you for your continued patience, support, and partnership in entrusting us with your children.

With Gratitude,

Danny Karpf
Head of School
