Volunteers- Proof of Vaccination & Testing
If you have only received two doses of a COVID vaccination or no COVID vaccination, the district requires a district-administered Rapid Antigen Test the day before you volunteer in the classroom. You can register for this rapid test below.
Reminder: Student Illness
Please do not send your student to school if they are ill, COVID or not.
Thank you for doing your part to keep our school community healthy!
COVID Testing Update!
However, this does not mean students should be attending school when they are ill. Please take care in keeping your students home if they are exhibiting cold/flu-like symptoms of any nature or have a fever. This is to protect your student and other students and staff at school.
