"Test to Stay" Options for Students

We are pleased to announce that we are now offering a "Test to Stay" options for students. If a student is identified as having a close contact that would require a quarantine, parents will have an option for their child to participate in the program. This is a voluntary program that allows students to potentially avoid an unnecessary quarantine. Participants will be provided enough at-home tests to last through the prescribed quarantine. If students test negative, they will be able to attend school that day. Regardless of how we implement Executive Order 2, participants in this program will be required to mask for the duration of the program (usually 10 days). I have provided links to more information below. If your child becomes eligible to participate in the program, you will be provided more detailed information.


As always, if you have questions please contact me. We appreciate your cooperation, patience, and grace,


Thank you,
