Free rapid Testing for Students
As the school year continues, the health and safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. In an effort to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we are pleased to share that we will be taking part in a statewide program offering rapid tests for use in schools free of charge.
This program uses BinaxNOW tests, which provide results in 15 minutes and are administered using a nasal swab in the front area of the nostril. These tests have been shown accuracy rates of 97-98% for symptomatic individuals.
Parents, a Student Consent Form for optional COVID-19 testing at school was sent home on a blue form. Students can take the test if they show symptoms or if they were a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19. The nurse would call parents before administering the test to the students. We will only test with your consent.
If you did not receive the form you can get another one from Martin's front office to give permission for the nurse to perform the test when needed.
