Student Covid Testing Registration

Dear Henry Parent/Guardian,

Welcome back to an exciting and promising school year! As part of the district’s efforts to ensure the safety of our students, we are partnering with Thermo Fisher Scientific and Color Health to provide all students with COVID-19 testing beginning September 1, 2021 for the school year through the ReadyCheckGo™ testing program.

If you are interested in having your child participate in testing, please follow this link https://home.color.com/covid/sign-up/start?partner=tf-hen-609988-students and complete the registration process. A parent or guardian must register any minor under 18 years old, and you’ll give a one-time consent and HIPAA authorization to share your child’s results with the school and district.

Testing is optional for students, except for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated student athletes. Testing will take place during regular school hours and results will be available in 24 to 48 hours. Color Health will follow up with you directly if your child receives a positive result.

For more information on testing with Thermo Fisher and Color, including self-swab testing and receiving results, head to their Support FAQs or call 888-603-1028. You may also email the CPS COVID-19 Testing Team at covidtestingcps@cps.edu.

Thank you for your participation to keep our school community safe and healthy.

Submit a Copy of Student Vaccination Records

Vaccination is the leading public health prevention strategy to end the COVID-19 pandemic. It benefits not only the individual, but also schools and communities by reducing transmission of the virus.

Nearly 60% of young people in Chicago aged 12-17 years have received at least one dose of an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is safe and effective for children, and is offered at no cost. To find more information regarding vaccine opportunities please visit:

Parents/guardians of fully vaccinated students are urged to submit a copy of their child’s COVID-19 vaccination record to their child’s school. Student vaccination records will be entered into the student’s electronic record in ASPEN, where they can be stored safely and used to inform the contact tracing and quarantining process. School nurses are the only staff who are trained and qualified to enter student vaccination records, so forms that are given to teachers, school clerks, etc. will be routed to the school nurse.
