COVID Screening and Testing Updates
Today at our school, staff gave one package of five rapid antigen tests to your child to take home. There is an important letter that will come home with the kits. Please read the letter to fully understand the when to use the rapid antigen screening kit.
Your child’s participation in this rapid antigen testing is voluntary.
A staff member marked that a child had received the testing kits. If you child was absent today, they can pick their kit up tomorrow.
Students are not required to participate in order to return to the classroom after the winter break.
Together, with Hamilton Public Health Services, we are supporting additional action to prevent the spread of Covid-19, giving parents another tool to access volunteer testing, and further protect in-person learning.
Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact Public Health at 905-974-9848 or visit www.hamilton.ca/coronavirus.
Have a safe and healthy holiday season.
Mr. Mark Degner
