Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Testing Now Available at School for Students
If your child is identified as a close contact of a person who tests positive for COVID, Snoqualmie Valley schools are able to administer a Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test free of charge to your child at school. This will be limited to identified close contacts at school or school-sponsored events, according to recommended Dept. of Health timelines.
Parents/guardians: Your permission is needed in order to administer a test if your child is identified as a close contact, following contact tracing. With this permission, please know we will also notify a family when their child receives a Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test at school, and provide a separate communication should your child test positive.
Please complete the steps below, if you would like to grant permission for your child to receive a Rapid COVID-19 Antigen Test at school, if they are identified as a potential close contact:
Log in to Skyward Family Access, click on Online Forms.
Select the Consent + HIPAA form (Fill this form out if you have not yet completed a Consent Form.)
OR - Select the HIPAA form only (if you’ve already completed the Consent Form earlier).
We cannot administer a Rapid Antigen Test for your student until we have both your CONSENT and HIPAA approval on file.
How does this help? Having your permission on file…
Provides convenience, saving your family a trip to a health provider for a COVID test;
Enables our staff to respond quickly, helping prevent the spread of illness at school;
And, hopefully, helps keep your student at school.
