The district heard our community voices about the need for Asymptomatic COVID-19 Testing to re-open schools safely and responded with The NPS Testing Program. It’s Free and is Here. Click to Sign up today so your child(ren) can participate in the weekly testing at South. Let’s move 30% participation to 75%.
As we prepare to return to full in-person days on April 26, we NEED the support of our Newton South families to student(s) in the NPS COVID-19 testing program. Testing is the best way we have to quickly identifyinfection and reduce the possibility of in-school transmission.
It’s painless! This is NOT the “touch your brain” swab! This is a sample taken from the front of your nose with a Q-tip like swab. It’s super-fast and painless.
It makes a difference! The more students who participate, the better data we have on infection rates in our community. This means we can quickly identify infection, reduce the risk of in school transmission, limit quarantines, and keep our schools, athletics and other important activities open for the rest of the year!.
If your child forgets that morning, please go to the South Main Office and pick up a new kit. It’s simple, it’s easy to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our school. Thank you!
