This year we will be SHIELD testing all of our unvaccinated students to limit the number of students that will be required to quarantine due to close contact. SHIELD testing will begin within the next couple of weeks and they will be here once a week. SHIELD screening is a saliva sample tested in a facility off site. If your student is a contact to a positive we will also perform a BiNax nasal test on the days SHIELD is not in the building. Information regarding SHIELD testing was shared out in our Return to Learn Plan that can be found on the school website. You can also find the Opt-Out form in the Return to Learn Plan or your student can pick up a copy in the main office. This information was shared out with all students at our class meetings to start the school year.
