Why get vaccinated
Children under the age of 12 are still not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, making them more vulnerable to the virus. We’ve always made student safety our top priority and this is no different. The best way to protect our students, co-workers, and ourselves is to get vaccinated.

Voluntary WeCare COVID-19 testing is available weekly at your work site
All employees are encouraged to volunteer to be tested weekly at your work site. Testing is available every Monday at no cost to you. To be tested, you simply rub the inside of your cheek with a long cotton swab. Results are texted directly to you within 24-48 hours. This quick, easy, and painless process helps identify students and staff who may have COVID-19, but don’t know it because they don’t have any symptoms. Complete a consent form and bring a copy of your photo ID the first time you are tested.

Stay home if you’re not feeling well or have been exposed to COVID-19
Please check yourself every morning at home for any symptoms of illness and stay home if you aren’t feeling well. You must also stay home if you have been directly exposed to someone with COVID-19. Working together, we can prevent COVID-19 exposures at school and significantly reduce staff and student quarantines. Thank you for your cooperation to help keep everyone healthy and able to come to school!
