In-School Testing Program

Students and staff members may sign up to participate in the district’s in-school COVID-19 testing program by clicking here. At this time, your participation is entirely optional, however we strongly encourage all unvaccinated individuals to participate.

By signing up on behalf of your child, you will be consenting to:

Routine COVID Safety Checks: Once each week, a shallow nasal swab will be collected. Your child's swab will be placed in a single tube with the swabs of students and staff members. If a group sample tests positive, individual follow-up testing will be administered

Symptomatic Testing: A shallow nasal swab is collected when a student or staff member is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 at school. We must stress that you CANNOT GO TO SCHOOL OR WORK IF YOU ARE EXHIBITING SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19. This program is intended as a backup when symptoms suddenly appear during the day.
