   ON CAMPUS PCR TESTING   
For the convenience of our students and their families, and when COVID-19 symptoms appear while here at school, we are pleased to be able to now offer these PCR diagnostic tests here in our Nurse’s office.
In order for your child to be able to participate in the program, a parent/guardian will need to complete the following steps:

1. Visit the following link: https://app.clarifi-covid-19.com/ 2. Click “Register” and complete the registration process 3. Create a profile for each of your children (every child must have their own profile)

Once you have registered your child, if your child is displaying symptoms while at school, and with your permission, the student will administer their own PCR test (under the supervision of one of our school nurses) and then the district will send the test out for processing.  

Although your child will still be required to remain at home until the results of the PCR test are received, providing the option to test at school will eliminate the need for a visit to the doctor’s office.
