Important Message about Ebola

The facts below are important to help you understand how low your risk of Ebola exposure is:

  • Ebola can be spread only by direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person.
  • Ebola is not spread through the air and is not spread by being near someone who is infected.
  • People only become contagious after they begin to have symptoms, such as fever.
  • The Ebola outbreak is concentrated in only three countries – Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.
  • If someone has traveled to Liberia, Guinea, or Sierra Leone in the past 21 days but does not have any symptoms, he or she cannot infect anyone else with Ebola.
  • The United States is NOT at risk for an Ebola epidemic.

If you would like trustworthy information about Ebola, we recommend you visit the website of the Center for Disease Control:  A letter from NYC Chancellor of Schools, Carmen Farina, can be read here.

Join the Parent Association

It is well known that children do better when their parents are involved both at home and at school.  The NYC Chancellor calls parent leadership the "cornerstone of the public schools," and each school is required to have a parent association.  Parent involvement could include raising money, hosting events, volunteering with students, and helping out around the building. Contact UASEM's new Parent Coordinator, Jacqueline Mangroo at or 212-225-0998, x. 6314.
