12.30.2020: Preparing for the 2nd Semester with a COVID-19 Assurance Testing Opportunity for Woodland Students

Dear Parents,

We are excited to offer COVID-19 Assurance testing this coming Saturday, January 2nd. We strongly encourage all of our students to take advantage of this testing before school starts on January 4th. This testing is especially important for those students who traveled during the holidays or spent time with people outside of their household.

Testing will be done as a drive-through process at Point B, beginning at 10 am Saturday and ending at noon. This PCR test is $15.00 per student, and all registration forms and payments must be submitted prior to testing. The cut-off for registration is Friday, January 1st, by noon. (The COVID-19 Assurance Testing Registration information is listed at the bottom of this email.)

Test results are typically ready within 24-48 hours after the testing is completed, and you will be notified via email if your results are negative. Should there be a positive result, you will be notified by phone by the school nurse.

If you had already registered your student for the canceled December 14th test, please let me know if you would like your student to be tested this Saturday. Further payment will not be required, but you will need to complete the CDC questionnaire again.

Please remember our “green card” screening questions as we begin our 2nd semester. We rely on our Woodland community to be aware of these guidelines to keep our students and faculty safe and healthy. If you have any questions regarding whether your student should come to school, please err on the side of caution and notify the school nurse before dropping off your child. If someone in your household is exhibiting any symptoms and is planning on being tested for COVID-19, please do not send your student to school until you have spoken with the school nurse.

As a reminder, the screening guidelines are below:


As always, we sincerely appreciate your support and commitment to keeping our Woodland community healthy. We look forward to seeing all of the students on Monday, January 4th!

Sincerely,

Nurse Gray and Nurse Sharp


The next opportunity to participate in the optional Assurance COVID-19 Testing at Woodland is Saturday, January 2. All consent forms and the online payment for each person registering must be submitted online by Friday, January 1 (by noon) or the test will not be administered.
