2021-2022 COVID Protocols

Please take time to review our COVID Protocols document. Here you will find specific information regarding the mitigations in place within our school environment, arrival/dismissal information, and other general information regarding our district's plan for returning to school.

COVID BINAX Testing Available On-Site

District administrators and the district's nurse have been trained and are able to administer rapid COVID tests to students and staff. A signed waiver is needed in order to use this option. Please consider completing one and sending it to school with your student so we will have it on file in the event your student is symptomatic and you would like them tested.


Please call the school office to schedule an appointment to be tested. When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, please park in front of Door 2. Then, call the office to notify us you have arrived. We will come to your car to administer the BINAX test and call you with the results. Please do not come for a test unless you have a scheduled appointment. Additionally, please do not come inside the building if you are being tested for COVID-19.


We appreciate your cooperation.
