COVID Testing Schedule Change and Update

Routine COVID Safety Check (Pool Testing) Update

IMPORTANT SCHEDULE CHANGE FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 29, 2022

Due to the Memorial Day holiday, the following changes will take place for the Butler and Wellington COVID test days

  • Butler will submit their tests on Tuesday May 31, 2022
  • Wellington will submit their tests on Wednesday June 1, 2022

Please register and label your sample tubes appropriately. If your tube is not labeled and registered ahead of time, it may not be processed due to the increased demand on CIC staff.

PLEASE NOTE: If your child has received a positive result within the past 90 days and receives a pooled test kit, please do not submit a test to your school.  

IMPORTANT

If you are participating in pooled testing and receive an email from VERITAS, PLEASE open it immediately. Individuals who are in a positive pool will have their samples individually tested. This email will contain your child’s individual results. If the result is positive, your child must begin isolation immediately.

All district COVID testing will end on June 8, 2022. Pool Testing will be offered to those who currently have a consent on file. Due to the turnaround time it takes to get supplies and update consent lists, we will not be able to accept new consents.

The last distribution of the Take-Home antigen tests will be the week of May 29, 2022.

Thank you to all who have participated in this program.
