Here is information related to the return. Please bring all of your supplies back including the computer and charger. Families, please be patient as our returning teachers learn how to teach students in front of them and students at home. Next week might be slower than usual with the learning.

COVID Pool Testing

We will continue to COVID pool test on Wednesdays or Thursdays. Our fifth pool testing included 70+ students and staff with pools in 9/10 classes. One case was found through pool testing this week. Letters and emails were sent home on these days. In-school students can sign-up at any time. Paper releases will be sent home with any interested students or use the digital consent on this additional SMORE.

COVID Pooled Testing - Completely Voluntary

Detailed information on pooled testing is available through this additional SMORE in several languages. This is completely voluntary. We do not require this. Lowell Public Schools will be participating in "pooled testing" for COVID. Once we return, students and staff can voluntarily participate in weekly free COVID testing in school. The testing is completed using a short nasal swab and will be done by the nurse or principal. Results will come back within 48 hours. Students in grades 2 and above will do the nasal swab themselves with supervision. We do not have the complete details yet, but interested families will need to fill out a consent form. Here are more details on pooled testing.https://www.smore.com/32nqp
