SYMPTOMATIC TESTING FOR SICK STUDENTS with the Abbott ID NOW

The Abbott ID NOW COVID-19 Test is a very easy nasal swab and results are available in 15 minutes. This test can be used by our school health office staff to rule out COVID-19 if your student becomes sick during the school day.

A negative test result does necessarily allow your student return to class. Your student must still follow the district’s sick/return to school policy. Your student may still need to be seen by their healthcare provider. A follow-up COVID-19 test might be recommended.

For your student(s) to participate in symptomatic testing, you must:

  1. Complete the consent form below &
