If you want your child to participate in testing, you need to sign them up and give consent for testing through the CIC Health Portal. CIC Health is the program that we are using to manage the testing and legal consent. Please use the link below to register your child. It can take up to 48 hours for your consent to be uploaded into the testing database, so we are asking all families to do this as soon as possible.
Please note: No student will be allowed to participate in the Test & Stay program going forward unless consent is completed in the CIC health database. This is a requirement of DESE and DPH.
If your child is identified as a close contact at school you will have to pick your child up and he/ she will have to quarantine at home for 7 days, with return on day 8 if an outside test is negative on day 5, OR quarantine for a full 10 days if no test is done.
If your child becomes sick at school, you will have to pick your child up and have an outside test done showing a negative result before he/she can return to school.
In order for our test and stay program to be successful, not only do we need consent for testing, but we also require timely notification if your student is sick and tests positive for COVID-19.
Please inform the school nurse as soon as you know of a positive case in your family so that contact tracing can begin immediately and others can be notified as soon as possible. Contract tracing begins 2 days either before onset of symptoms or 2 days before a positive test result if there are no symptoms.
Thank you for your continued support through this pandemic.
