COVID CASES & TEST RESULTS
We only call or text families of children who test positive and families of children who were exposed. If your child was tested and you don't hear from us, it means your child tested negative. You can alwasy contact us if you have a question.
There were a total of 37 known positive cases since July 2021.
We are working with Concentric to provide twice-a-week saliva-based PCR testing.
If you didn't register your child yet, please do so at this link: online consent form. The school code is CDLP9F. Having your child tested, makes it safer for all the other students.
