Free, Weekly COVID-19 Testing on Campus
We are thrilled to share that a new “opt-in” testing program will be part of keeping our students and staff safe during this COVID-19 surge. You will soon be receiving an email from an organization called COVID Clinic. This email is not spam, though it may go into your spam or junk email folders. Rather, this is an important email that contains an electronic permission slip to sign up your child for weekly, free COVID-19 testing at Allen Elementary. This weekly testing will be provided just outside the door of your child’s classroom by licensed and trained health care professionals. This weekly testing will minimize interruptions to the school instructional day while allowing us to ensure that our students, staff, and community are safe and healthy. Although this is not mandatory, we hope that all families and staff will choose to opt in and participate in this weekly testing opportunity. Please provide consent as soon as you receive the email to assist us in keeping our schools open. This testing will begin next week at Allen Elementary. Should you have questions, please contact the school office at (619) 479-3662.
