On-demand COVID-19 Testing Consent Campaign

SPS is prepared to manage COVID-19 in our schools. Our goals are to keep school communities healthy and safe, and ensure uninterrupted in-person learning.  

One way to do this is by testing for COVID-19 at schools. Families must provide consent for any COVID-19 testing at school during this school year.  

Times when your student may be tested include:  

  • Diagnostic testing when an individual has symptoms  
  • Screening testing when an individual has had an exposure 
  • Screening testing in the case of a potential outbreak (when there are multiple cases in one class or group). Please know that in the case of a potential outbreak, we will inform families before testing. 

Families will soon receive an email notification from CIC Health.  

The email address will be Please click on the link in the email to fill out the consent form. Families do not need health insurance for students to be tested at school.  

The online form is available in 10 languages. If you are unable to fill out the electronic form, please contact your student’s school. They can provide a paper copy.
