I am pleased to share that the state vendor who is working with our District to implement pooled testing still plans to begin the program here next week. Although we have not yet received all of the necessary supplies from the vendor, we are hopeful that those supplies will arrive in time for them to meet the timeline they have given us. As of now, their planned schedule for next week is as follows:
- Tuesday (10-26-21) Test at ARHS/Summit Academy & Wildwood
- Thursday (10-28-21) Test @ ARMS & Fort River
- Friday (10-29-21) Test @ Crocker Farm & Pelham
If you gave consent for your child to participate in pooled testing, they will be among the students called to the nurse’s office to be tested. However, each child will have to give verbal consent prior to taking the test, and no child will be forced to participate if they choose not to. We will notify parents/guardians if their child chooses not to take the test as scheduled.
For those who may still be interested in consenting to pooled testing (either staff members or students), the link to sign up is https://www.cic-health.com/consent/ma?district=Amherst-Pelham.
