COVID-19 School Testing Program

COVID-19 Testing Programs In Schools

Effective February 28, 2022, STGRSD opted into an at-home antigen testing program that will increase testing of our participating students and staff, regardless of vaccination status. In addition to this new at-home antigen test option, we will start symptomatic testing at school. As part of this shift in the program, we have discontinued the previous Test&Stay and contact tracing for in-school close contacts.

All testing is VOLUNTARY and individuals must opt-in to receive tests.

All questions should be directed to your school nurse. 

Ongoing At-Home Rapid Antigen Testing
On Sunday’s, students, with assistance from caregivers, will self-administer a rapid COVID-19 antigen test that they receive from the District. 
Students with positive test results will stay home from school on Monday and results will be reported to the school nurse. School nurse will provide information about isolation and return to school.
To participate, you must opt in by completing the online form. By opting in, you will agree to review the training materials for test administration, report positive test results to your student’s school, and administer the tests according to STGRSD guidelines.

Symptomatic Testing
Students who develop COVID-19 symptoms after arriving at school will be tested for COVID-19 by the school nurse using a rapid COVID-19 antigen test. Students who test positive must go home immediately. The school nurse will provide information about isolation and return to school. Students who test negative may return to class and stay in school. 
To participate, students must have a school testing consent form on file. This is the same consent that was required for our previous Test&Stay program. Students with consent on file do not need to sign up again. If a consent form is not on file, one can be completed online:
