From Newton School District:
As NPS prepares for a full in-person return to school for students at all levels, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE families to enroll their student (s) in our COVID-19 testing program. Testing is one of the best ways we have to quickly identify infection and reduce the possibility of in school transmission.
Here are 3 reasons to enroll:
- It’s easy! Complete the opt-in in Aspen. Pre-K – 8th grade students will receive their QR code from school staff.
- 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!.
Bonus reason: This testing program is FREE to all families! We ask you to strongly consider enrolling your student today. Thanks in advance for doing your part to keep our schools safer.
