Rapid Antigen Testing Kits
Dear SWC Families,
On Tuesday December 14th at our school, staff will give one package that contains 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 will record who has received the testing kits. If you child will be absent that day, they can pick their kit from their afternoon teacher the nest day.
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.
Thank you, Mr W Gillis
VP – SWC
