COVID-19 Student Testing Consent Formย  ย SY 2022 - 2023
COVID-19 Testing is one of the layers of mitigation that will maximize the safety of our students and staff during the 2022- 2023 school year. Because testing will need to be performed regardless of a parent or guardianโ€™s availability at the time a ย test will be administered, consent for testing is required for all students. The testing will be provided for students at no cost to students or their family. ย

The testing method is a quick nasal swab of both nostrils. It is found to be fast and painless. (It is NOT the deep-sinus swabs that some individuals have found uncomfortable.) The testing method involves inserting a small swab, like a Q-Tip, ย into the front of the nose in both nostrils. Results will be available in 15 minutes. The test is administered by either a Certified School Nurse or the School Districtโ€™s medical professional testing partners. The type of test being used includes, but is not limited to, Abbottโ€™s BinaxNOW COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test. Molecular tests (PCR) may be identified and utilized as necessary.

The parent/guardian listed on this consent will be notified on the day that their student was tested. All results will be communicated to the studentโ€™s parent/guardian. ย
