Weekly COVID Testing with Grapefruit
Optional Weekly COVID Testing
We are pleased to share that we are partnering with healthcare professionals to provide regular, optional testing at USD school sites starting September 27, 2021.
As an additional layer of protection, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends screening testing in schools to stop the spread of the virus and prevent outbreaks. Union School District has partnered with professional testing experts at Grapefruit Testing to conduct no-cost COVID-19 screening tests of students and staff at our schools.
All students will require parent/guardian permission to participate. Consent forms are linked below. Printed copies can be obtained from the school office.
We encourage families to complete the consent form and submit it directly to Grapefruit Testing so that your student may participate in this important on site, health screening opportunity. This testing will also allow us to test students who may qualify for a modified quarantine.
