SHIELD Onsite Screening
SHIELD screening will begin
Monday, September 20, 2021, for students.
FREE Weekly COVID-19 Screenings
As you know, our main priority is to get all children back in school and keep them in school.
District 33 has partnered with the University of Illinois to screen students and staff members for COVID-19 infection.
Why Screen for COVID-19?
- Regular Screening is critical - asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic individuals do 50% of the spread.
- Individuals become contagious before symptoms appear. CovidSHIELD can detect the virus before it becomes transmissible.
- Weekly screening helps prevent the spread of COVID, therefore, keeping more kids in school and reducing quarantine time.
If you GIVE CONSENT for your child to participate in weekly screenings as described below NO ACTION is needed.
If you DO NOT GIVE CONSENT for your child to participate in weekly screenings as described below OR if your child is fully vaccinated,
