COVID Testing Program

COVID Testing Program

Cass School District 63 has formed a partnership with Northshore Clinical Labs to provide a comprehensive on-site polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing program. We have staff trained to administer on-site testing when symptoms are present at school for students or staff, and soon Northshore will also provide weekly screening testing as well. Parents will have the option of electing to participate in symptomatic testing when needed, asymptomatic screening weekly at school and when it is available, testing to remain in school for unvaccinated students who are close contacts at school when they meet stringent criteria. Parents who elect to participate in any of the testing opportunities can also express a preference for your child to undergo a light nasal swab OR cheek swab for the testing. More information is available under the Stay Healthy, Stay Smart! plan.
