Optional COVID-19 Testing for Students

South Texas Independent School District takes the health and safety of our students and their families very seriously. As such, in addition to steps to screen for the virus and prevent its spread on a campus, we are adding a voluntary K-12 COVID-19 testing program for students. This program uses Abbott Laboratories BinaxNOW tests provided by the federal government. We will only test with your consent.  If you are willing to provide consent for us to administer this test on your child, please fill out the form linked below and return it to your child's school nurse via e-mail. Contact information for the school nurses is listed below.

Testing is contingent upon the availability of tests, as the demand for tests is currently high. Please consult with your child’s campus regarding the availability of testing. If your child is displaying symptoms, please do not send your child to school. Keep your child home, and reach out to your campus nurse for guidance.

Prueba de COVID-19 opcional para los estudiantes

El Distrito Escolar Independiente del Sur de Texas toma en cuenta con seriedad la salud y la seguridad de los estudiantes y sus familias. Por tanto, además de los pasos implementados para detectar el virus y prevenir su propagación en los campus, comenzaremos a ofrecer un programa voluntario de pruebas de COVID-19 para estudiantes de K-12. Este programa utiliza la prueba BinaxNOW de Abbott Laboratories proporcionada por el gobierno federal. Únicamente realizaremos la prueba a aquellos estudiantes si contamos con el consentimiento de sus padres. Si usted otorga su consentimiento para que le administremos esta prueba a su hijo(a), complete el formulario a continuación y envíelo a la enfermera de la escuela de su hijo por correo electrónico. La información de contacto de las enfermeras de las escuelas se detalla a continuación.

La realización de las pruebas dependerá de la disponibilidad de estas ya que actualmente su demanda es alta. Comuníquese con el campus de su hijo(a) para saber si hay pruebas disponibles. Si su hijo(a) tiene síntomas, no lo(a) mande a la escuela. Su hijo(a) deberá permanecer en casa y usted deberá comunicarse con la enfermera del campus para obtener orientación.
