Onsite Screening and Testing
FREE COVID-19 testing is now available for students who become symptomatic during the school day or are unable to attend school due to COVID-19 like symptoms. Screening/Testing is also available for our staff.
How does this work for students?
If a student presents with symptoms of COVID-19 at school:
- The student will be sent to the health office immediately.
- The parents/guardians will be contacted to pick up their child from school. At this time, they will be given the opportunity to provide verbal consent for free COVID-19 testing on site.
- If consent is given, the test will be administered in the school health office by swabbing the nose or throat.
- Parents will have the opportunity to provide signed consent for the results to be shared with the district COVID Liaison to aid in contact tracing in the event of a positive test result.
- Test results will be provided to the parent/guardian within 24 hours via email or text message.
If a student stays home due to COVID-19 like symptoms:
- Parents would report their child’s absence with the school health office.
- Parents may access FREE COVID-19 testing for their child and any other family members at the D33 Mobile COVID-19 Testing
