COVID Test Kits Available for Families

The Indiana Department of Health has supplied HSE Schools with COVID test kits to provide to our families.

Test kits are available for families to pick up at the school, or if your student is being sent home from school with COVID-like symptoms, the nurse will offer to send a test kit home with your student.

Testing does not take place in the school by nursing but can be sent home for a parent/guardian to perform.

Each test kit contains 4 tests. The test kits expire in August.
