Voluntary COVID-19 Testing Information:
- Testing is voluntary and free for all staff and students
- Staff and students must pre-register for testing – the registration process is how parents/guardians provide consent for testing their student
- Registration links are on the district website here: https://www.scusd.edu/covid-19-testing (scroll to the bottom)
- Asymptomatic or surveillance testing: the goal of this testing is to identify asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic cases. Surveillance testing will be offered (every other week) during the school day to all registered staff and students every 2 weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays while in the Red Tier Level.
- Routine surveillance testing for 7-12 grade will start on April 20 and 22
- When parents register for testing, their student will automatically be tested every two weeks. If parents want to revoke their consent for testing, they must notify the school in writing.
- Health Aides will provide a list of students registered to test during the testing windows. Site staff will arrange and bring registered students to the Care Room for testing in small groups.
- Symptomatic testing will be offered to individuals with symptoms of COVID- 19 that are already on site. A negative test result can shorten the Stay at Home requirement. We must have consent to provide symptomatic testing to students. Staff and students must follow the Stay Home and Return to School Guidelines.
- Response testing is used to identify positive individuals among close contacts of a case within a cohort. Response-based testing can be provided for symptomatic or asymptomatic individuals with known or suspected exposure to an individual infected with COVID-19. We will offer voluntary response testing to all individuals considered close contacts to a known COVID-19 case before leaving the site.
