Update 1/17/22


80 students and 22 staff members showed up to Saturday School for an opportunity to raise their grades, get caught up, and have some 1:1 time with teachers to get in a position to earn semester credits as this first semester winds down. Thank you to all that showed up to provide and experience this catch up session. Last Saturday opportunity is January 22, from 9am-11am.

In regards to COVID:

With the increase in COVID-19 cases across the community we have seen a high demand for students needing to get COVID-19 tested. If your student needs to be COVID-19 tested the school district has two options for you.

The first option is to call your school and ask for a COVID-19 testing appointment. Schools will be scheduling testing appointments for 30 minutes prior to the start of school until 11:30am each day. School nurses and personnel will doing the testing and it is free to families.

If you cannot arrange an appointment at the school for a COVID-19 test you can come to the Longview Schools temporary testing clinic located in the district office at 2715 Lilac Street between the hours of 2pm and 4pm on school days to get a free COVID-19 test. Whether your child is tested at school or the district office you will need to fill out a testing consent form. The forms are available at the testing locations and on the district web site if you click here.

As always, we will accept results from another testing center should you prefer to obtain your testing elsewhere.

If you have additional questions related to testing, please call the school.

Las escuelas programarán citas para las pruebas durante 30 minutos antes del comienzo de clases hasta las 11:30 a. m. todos los días. Las enfermeras y el personal de la escuela harán la prueba y es gratis para las familias.

Si no puede programar una cita en la escuela para una prueba de COVID-19, puede venir a la clínica de prueba temporal de las Escuelas de Longview ubicada en la oficina del distrito en 2715 Lilac Street entre las 2:00 p. m. y las 4:00 p. m. 19 prueba.
