We are working with several companies offering free covid testing to schools in California, paid for by federal and state funds.
Through CDPH, we have received (at-home) BinaxNow rapid antigen test kits that all parents need to come and pick up from DMP between August 25 and 30th.Parents can get 3 test kits per student (for a total of 6 tests).
Parents should test their children on Sunday or Monday, before the Meet and Greet and the First Day of School. This will help us to start the year with no active COVID-19 cases on campus! Parents will also have enough kits to test their children after Thanksgiving and Winter vacations.
More information will be coming about the weekly pooled COVID PCR testing that will begin on September 10th.
