FREE COVID-19 TESTING KITS AVAILABLE!
As schools and families adjust to changes to COVID-19 protocols, OHA, ODE and DDSD remain committed to school safety. In the coming weeks, OHA in collaboration with ODE is sending iHealth antigen self-tests to all Title I schools to be sent home with students. In David Douglas, this is all our elementary and middle schools. These tests represent one strategy to increase access to testing resources in our school communities. Students and their families are encouraged to use these tests if they develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or who have had a known exposure to COVID-19. If you are interested in getting a kit for your student please call our main office for pick-up information.
