Effective Monday, Dec. 13, the District will partner with a new testing provider, Covid Clinic, to continue our free, on-site Covid testing program for staff and students at our schools and district administrative offices.
Covid Clinic is a not-for-profit testing provider that currently provides on-site Covid testing across the nation and in a number of school districts across California.
Those that continue to choose to participate in testing at our school sites and administrative offices will need to register for testing with our new provider. Please watch for communication from the District this week (Nov. 29 - Dec. 3). The communications will include registration instructions and other important information.
We will continue to offer free Covid testing at each school site once every week and twice a week at our high schools.
Our student-athletes will continue to have access to testing at school in order to be cleared for participation.
Testing times will be from 12 noon to 6 p.m.
The tests will now also be a nasal swab instead of a saliva test. For this test, a swab is inserted less than one inch into the nostril. This will make participation easier for younger students and special needs students who may have had difficulties providing saliva samples. The individual taking the test simply wipes the entry of their nose with a swab.
