BCSD Consent for Student Rapid COVID-19 Testing
The Batavia City School District (the “District”) must randomly select and test faculty, staff, and students in order to maintain in-person, hybrid instruction. The District is seeking your consent to test your child for COVID-19 infection. If you consent, your child may receive a free diagnostic test for the COVID-19 virus that will be administered by a trained staff, or a licensed practical nurse (LPN) or registered nurse (RN).

A rapid COVID-19 test will be used, which will involve inserting a small swab, similar to a Q-Tip, into the front of both nostrils. We will notify you if your child tests positive for COVID-19. Any students who test positive will be sent home and must be kept at home until meeting Genesee County Department of Health criteria to return to school. Please contact your child’s doctor immediately to review the test results should your child test positive for COVID-19.

The law requires and/or allows some information about your child to be shared with Genesee County and New York State Public Health Agencies. This includes notifying the Genesee County Department of Health about the COVID-19 results of each student who is tested and may include the student’s name, date of birth, race, ethnicity, gender, address, phone number, and result of the COVID-19 test.
