COVID-19 RAPID TESTING IS NOW AVAILABLE AT HISD
At Hawkins ISD we are committed to doing all we can to keep staff and students healthy and safe. With this goal in mind, we are pleased to share that we will be taking part in a statewide program offering rapid tests for use in schools.
HOW DO I GET MY CHILD TESTED?
+ Submit a self-report on our website if your child is displaying COVID-19 symptoms. (Testing is not mandatory and can only be administered with full parental consent.)
+ Schedule an appointment here: https://bit.ly/hawkinscovidtest
+Download Parent Permission Form
+ Arrive at your scheduled appointment time to have the test administered. (URGENT: Do not send your child to school if they are currently displaying symptoms of COVID-19.)
HOW MUCH DOES TESTING COST?
+ All testing is free and at no cost to the staff member/student.
+ Health insurance is not required.
Our HISD test administrator will call to share results after the test has been administered and/or the results will be shared with you via email and text message within 30-60 minutes. The results will also be shared with the school/district and with the local health department to allow for public health reporting, contact tracing, and to determine the stay-at-home period for individuals who test positive.
