SHPA COVID-19 Testing Program Information and Consent FormTou Thao
Seven Hills students are invited to participate in free COVID-19 rapid testing coordinated by the school. The purpose of this program is to efficiently detect the presence of COVID-19 in the school community to assist the school in mitigating its spread and associated disruptions to the learning environment. COVID-19 rapid tests will primarily be administered at school, subject to availability, when a student is exhibiting one more or two less COVID-19 symptoms and help make exclusion or isolation decisions. The school will use a test from a company called Cue Health Inc. Cue tests are nasal-swab tests that will be administered by school personnel. School personnel will receive the test results using the Cue Health app on a school-issued device. Results are typically available within 20 minutes of administration of the test. School personnel will report the results to the parent/guardian and student within a reasonable period after they become available. More information about Cue tests can be found in the Fact Sheet from Cue Health, Inc. and the Minnesota Department of Health. Participation in the school’s COVID-19 testing program is voluntary. Parent/guardians and students have the right to refuse to participate in this program and are not legally required to provide the requested data. Please find the information and consent form here. For those choosing to participate in the school’s testing program or to report the results of at-home tests, whether the BinaxNOW OTC test skit being offered by the school to students in quarantine or another test parents/guardians use that is not provided by the school.
