Covid Tests

If students receive an exposure notification, they can go to the Wellness Center to pick up a Covid test kit.  Covid test kits will be distributed before school holidays for students to test at home before returning to school.

If students suspect they have Covid or have been told they are a close contact, please use this flowchart for decision making..



Masks will be optional starting on Tuesday 9/6/22, except for the classrooms and other spaces on campus that require masks (posted in individual spaces). .
