COVID-19 Testing Coming Soon

Dear Parents/Guardians – We are excited to announce that starting within the next few weeks we will begin FREE COVID-19 testing at our school!

We will be utilizing routine screening to help keep our community safe. Testing will ONLY be for the students who are registered, and it will be conducted using the gentle nasal swabbing technique (not the kind that tickles the brain!). We encourage everyone to register for this free and effective program.

If you would like to register your child for free COVID-19 testing at school, please register at the links below: Please make sure to select the correct school for your child. Thank you!
