Weekly COVID Testing
October 8, 2021
Dear KLSD Community,
We are now ready to begin the roll-out of our weekly COVID testing program, in collaboration with Westchester County Department of Health (WCDOH). This is an important step both in maintaining the health and safety of all students and staff and in keeping our schools open for in-person learning.
For students to be tested, families must provide consent. It is a two-step process, you will first be asked to provide consent to the school district by completing this electronic form. (To reach the correct link, you will either need to be on your child's school issued device, or know your child's school credentials to log in on a personal device through their KLSD account). If you have more than one child, please fill out a form (using the correct device or credentials) for each child.
Once that consent has been given, you will be provided a link to a Quadrant Biosciences website. Quadrant is the laboratory to whom we’ve been connected by WCDOH. On their website, you will register your child(ren) and, again, provide consent. IMPORTANTLY, when the registration asks if you have medical insurance, answer NO. There is no charge for this program and no insurance required.
More information and directions can be found here on our website.
We hope to begin testing during the week of October 18th and ask that you provide your consent as soon as possible, and no later than Wednesday, October 13. As always, we thank you for your partnership.
Andrew Selesnick, Superintendent of Schools
