On Tuesday of last week, the Governor met with superintendents to share highlights from the report. In the report, the task force called for increased testing and mitigation. He shared that the state is planning to provide BINAX rapid tests to schools and districts. We are not sure exactly when those will arrive, but the plan is to have testing available, should a student or staff
member begin to experience symptoms during a school day. The test would allow for early
detection and therefore, minimize spread of COVID. The District is hopeful that this will be yet another tool that we can use to help us keep our students and staff safe.
