KSD COVID TESTS
Kuna School District is offering free, optional COVID tests
TESTS FOR KSD STAFF, KSD STUDENTS ONLY
The Kuna School District is offering free, optional tests to help staff and students who have symptoms identify quickly whether they have COVID. Students will not be tested without signed parent consent.
THESE TESTS ARE FOR KSD STAFF, STUDENTS ONLY. You can order free home tests from this site: https://www.covidtests.gov/
These are rapid COVID tests providing results in about 20 minutes. Our goal is for staff and parents to have information quickly to avoid unnecessary time away from school in quarantine.
Who can get a free, optional COVID test?
Free, optional, rapid COVID tests are limited to symptomatic (for at least 24 hours and not more than five days) individuals who are:
- Kuna School District staff. Print the: consent form
- Kuna School District students who are younger than 18 and have the required signed parent consent form. Print the: consent form
- Kuna School District adult students who are 18 years and older

How to schedule a COVID test?
Testing is by appointment only. Parents must submit a signed consent form for their child to be tested.
Testing is done at Swan Falls High School in at the north (Linder Road side) parking lot. Individuals with an appointment will follow the signs to the faculty parking lot. The tester will come out to the vehicle.

What if results are positive or negative?
Tests results will be ready much sooner than our previously free COVID tests. Rapid tests provide results in about 20 minutes vs. several days. The district's health protocols are:
- If the test is negative, the individual will be able to return to work/school in 24 hours if no fever is present.
- If positive, individual may be able to return after five days, with a negative COVID test and symptoms are improving
