Dear Cambrian Families and Staff,
I encourage families and staff to opt in to this free service by Friday, February 11th.
Testing starts on February 14th and the more of us who sign up, the more likely we are able to detect cases early and keep our schools open.
The COVID Clinic team will go from class to class providing PCR tests to students and staff who have signed up for the free service. The tests will be self-administered by the students and staff, just as we have been doing.
Test results will come in 24-48 hours after the testing. If there is a positive case detected, a notification will go out to the appropriate classes.
With the weekly testing cadence, close contacts of school exposures can remain at school under the modified quarantine as long as they remain asymptomatic and will be tested by COVID Clinic the following week.
In addition to on-site testing, a kiosk will be open at the District Office (4115 Jacksol Drive) Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. for testing of volunteers, students’ parents and siblings, symptomatic students, and those needing testing to return to work and/or school.
Registration directions for volunteers, parents and siblings to be tested at the kiosk are coming soon.
Students and staff who are symptomatic or returning to school or work who have registered following the process below will be able to test at the kiosk.
Staff with children in our district: Register yourself first as a staff member and then add your child/ren as dependent/s. You will need your staff ID# and your child's six-digit ID#.
Have your Staff ID number ready. This can be found on your paycheck or on Power Teacher: click the icon with your initials on the top right side, click manage profile and you will see your ID#.
You will need to order the first test, but the weekly tests will be automatic unless opting out.
