We are excited to partner with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to offer free COVID-19 testing to any student or staff member who wishes it. Your child can participate in one or both of these testing opportunities. We will not test your child unless we have written permission on file. Please note, you need to sign both permission slips. Regular testing will ensure that we keep as many kids on campus as possible and limit the spread of COVID-19 on our campus.
● Pooled Testing: Once a week, a CDPH healthcare provider will be on campus to administer tests to students who have signed up for this program. Students will receive a swab, test themselves, and put the swab into a common container. The entire class’s results will be combined into one pool. If this pool is negative, then we know anyone who tested was negative. If the results are positive, then we know there is someone in the group who is positive, and we will administer individual tests to the entire group.
● Rapid Testing: We will have at least one person on campus who is trained to administer the rapid (Binax) tests for students on an individual basis.
