School-Based COVID-19 Testing Program

School Based COVID19 Testing Program Banner

Families,

Worcester County Public Schools is very excited to share with you how our school system is expanding our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. Beginning in early March, our school will be able to offer any student or staff member that becomes ill during the school day with COVID-19-like illness or who are identified as close contacts the opportunity to get tested right in the school nurse’s suite. 

Our schools' nurse suites are fully stocked with both rapid (BinaxNOW) and PCR (MAKO Medical) confirmatory tests, and our school nurses have been trained in the administration and handling of both tests. 

The testing program is entirely FREE, and no insurance is required. All you need to do to have your child participate in this program is simply complete the opt-in form that your child will bring home. It can also be printed at home by downloading it from the links below.

This is a truly a great new service we are able to offer our students and staff, so please be sure to take advantage by completing and returning the opt-in form to your child(ren)'s school as soon as possible. If you have any questions about this program, please contact your child's school and ask to speak with the nurse.
