COVID-19 Testing

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) supports COVID-19 testing in public and private K-12 schools in Oregon for students and staff who display symptoms of COVID-19. The Beaverton School District has registered to have Abbott BinaxNOW rapid antigen testing available for students and staff who develop primary symptoms of COVID-19 at school.


Primary symptoms of Covid-19 include:

● New or different than usual shortness of breath

● New or different than usual coughing

● Fever of 100.4 or higher

● New loss of taste or smell.


The Abbott BinaxNOW test will only be administered to students who have consent from their parent(s) or legal guardian on file. The student must be capable and willing to perform a nasal swab test independently. The parent(s) or guardian can decline testing and opt to test their child with a healthcare provider. If there is any doubt as to whether a specimen may be safely self-collected by an individual, they should be referred to their healthcare provider for COVID-19 testing. Positive test results will be shared with the Local Public Health Authority to assist in contact tracing.


If you would like your child to participate in this testing program, please complete and return the consent form attached below to the school office. For further information on the the Abbot BinaxNOW rapid antigen test see the following link: FDA information on BinaxNOW test.

Kids are everywhere. Drive like it.

As students return to schools for in-person learning this month, arrival and departure times may be different than you are used to. While traffic and activities around Beaverton schools may look different, one thing is for sure – kids are out and about in our community. Some kids may be returning to school buildings while others will be continuing to learn remotely and taking breaks outside during the day. Safety is everyone’s responsibility! Kids are everywhere. #DriveLikeIt.

Driving Safety Tips

Our community needs everyone to drive safely, be alert, and follow traffic laws, especially when observing students walking, biking, skateboarding, and scootering. Let’s work together to keep our students safe!

  • Stop for school busses when red lights flash. Both directions of traffic must stop.
  • Watch your speed. 20 mph is the school zone speed limit.
  • Be ready to stop at all times. Kids may dart into the street without checking for traffic.
  • Stop for people at intersections and when asked by the crossing guard. Check your blind spots before turning and behind your vehicle before reversing.
  • Drive for conditions – This time of year is often rainy and foggy limiting visibility for drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians so keep those headlights on to help others see you.

Parent/Guardian Screening Before Arrival

  1. Parents and guardians will perform a daily health evaluation before sending students to school.
  2. If a student is exhibiting a fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, a new loss of taste or smell or any of the symptoms on our Too Sick for School - Keep Ill Students Out of SchoolPDF opens in a new window flyer, the student should stay home.
