STUDENTS CAN OPT-IN FOR FREE COVID-19 TESTING!
In collaboration with the Los Angeles Department of Public Health (DPH), the District will be offering free COVID-19 testing for students and staff. With routine testing, positive cases will be identified more quickly which will reduce any potential spread of COVID-19 in our schools and keep our school community safer. COVID-19 tests will be performed weekly with a shallow nasal swab for participating students and staff members who opt in. Tests will take place during school/work hours. Schools and parents will receive the results within 24-48 hours.
