05-27-22 Upcoming COVID-19 At-Home Test Kit Distribution Information
May 27, 2022
Dear Williamsville Central School District Families,
The District will have one final COVID-19 at-home test kit distributions for students prior to the end of the school year on Wednesday, June 8th. We are currently planning for each student to receive four (4) COVID-19 at-home test kits (8 total tests) for this distribution.
Beginning Monday, May 30th, parents/guardians will need to request at-home test kits be sent home with their child(ren) through WITS. The survey will close on Friday, June 3rd.
As this is a medical test, please be sure to speak with your child(ren) about maintaining the integrity of the boxes/tests to ensure accuracy.
As a reminder, if your child(ren) tests positive for COVID-19, please keep them home, notify their building of attendance, and follow all of the appropriate return to school criteria prior to sending them back to school. Please note, if your child(ren) receives a positive result from the COVID-19 at-home test, please report it to the Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) at the following link: https://www3.erie.gov/covid/form/form-to-report-a-positive-covid-.
As a reminder, negative results on COVID-19 at-home tests are now acceptable for return to school protocol. Parents/guardians can e-mail their child’s building of attendance indicating their child received a negative result through the COVID-19 at-home test kit. If you have any questions, please contact your building nurse.
