Comprehensive Pooled Testing

With a full return to in-person learning we are asking your consideration to participate in our pooled testing. It is the BEST tool we have for identifying positive asymptomatic cases and this greatly reduces the spread of the virus. The higher the percentage of participants, the higher the ability to identify asymptomatic cases. As always, any identified positive cases will be followed up with contact tracing. All close contacts will be contacted and quarantined per CDC, Mass DOH, and local health department guidelines.


Please remember that you may use the Aspen parent portal to make adjustments to your current consent document at any time.
