Have you enrolled your child in NPS’ free, painless, take-home COVID testing program yet?
NPS STRONGLY ENCOURAGES families whose students are participating in in-person learning to enroll their student(s) in the COVID-19 testing program. Testing is one of the best ways we have to quickly identify infection and reduce the possibility of in-school transmission. Testing begins at Peirce this week!
Here are 3 reasons to enroll:
- It’s easy! Complete the Consent Form in the Aspen portal for your child to participate (here’s the link!). Elementary students will then receive a QR code from school staff to use to check in their weekly sample.
- It’s painless! This is NOT the “touch your brain” swab! This is a sample taken from the front of your nose with a Q-tip like swab. It’s super-fast and painless.
- It makes a difference! The more students who participate, the better data NPS has on infection rates in our community. This means NPS can quickly identify infection, reduce the risk of in school transmission, limit quarantines, and keep our schools, athletics and other important activities open for the rest of the year!.
Bonus reason: This testing program is FREE to all families! NPS asks you to strongly consider enrolling your student today. Thanks in advance for doing your part to keep our schools safer.
