A Message from Michelle Babilius, Director of School Health
There is a significant increase in upper respiratory illnesses in Wisconsin. Fortunately, it is more flu- related than COVID, and the flu vaccine has shown to be effective. However, we would still like to share resources to lower the spread of COVID by ensuring people are getting tested.
Wisconsinites can order free at home rapid COVID-19 tests and have them delivered directly to their home. All Wisconsin households are eligible to place an order every month on the Say Yes! COVID Test website for one free test kit that contains five rapid antigen COVID-19 tests. Households can place an order for test kits starting the 1st of every month, including households that have already received an initial order of test kits since the launch of this program in September.j

Even Start Family Literacy Program
The Even Start program is possible because of the collaboration between the School District of Beloit and Blackhawk Technical College. Even Start offers adults free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes that also includes childcare and educational instruction and opportunities for their children from birth to age four.
