Dec. 18 Elementary Parent Update: Watch “The Nosey Swab Swipe” video with your children at home; submit the testing consent form

Dear Elementary Parents and Guardians:

Our goal remains to stay safely OPEN for the in-person instruction, meal service, social connection, and emotional support that our students need.

Many families have submitted the school-based COVID-19 testing consent form for each child attending school as part of the in-person/hybrid groups. Thank you!

As we prepare for the *possibility* of starting rapid tests in school, we wanted to reach out directly to our youngest students who could be part of the testing process.

Please watch the following video WITH your child, to be sure they feel comfortable with the simple test, if and when we need to begin testing. (As of 12/18, Warren County is NOT yet designated as a COVID Cluster Zone.) The school-specific video will be shown in school as part of morning announcements next week, and we’d like families to watch together first.

“The Nosey Swab Swipe” has been designed specifically for your child, to help them understand and feel confident about this simple procedure. Special thanks to the students at each school for their help in creating these videos!

If you haven’t already responded for your in-person child, please complete the school-based COVID-19 testing consent form for your child(ren). If you have already filled out this form, many thanks.
