    If you are still interested in having your student participate, it is not too late. Any student registered during the week can be added to the list for the following Tuesday’s testing round. The registration process only takes about 5 minutes to complete using a computer or a smartphone. 

    1. First, click here: https://testcenter.concentricbyginkgo.com/minor-consent
    2. Then, enter this access code: 5RSVQW
    3. Finally, enter your child’s information, and you’re done!

    Note: If you need to provide consent for more than one child, please complete the process once for each child.

    What is pooled testing? 

    Pooling can test 25 people using one test. All students in a class, pod, or cohort swab their own noses and place their swabs in a single tube (that’s the pooling step). The samples in that tube are then run as a single sample, using one test. See it in action here. 

     

    You will be notified if there is a positive test pool and our school is using a rapid antigen test to provide “quick tests” for any individual in a positive pool. 

     

    Why pooled testing? Why should my student participate?

    You know the old saying: “knowledge is power.” Tools like pooled testing empower us to make great decisions. Without knowing the specific prevalence of COVID-19 in our school, it’s tough for us to make informed decisions about safeguarding our school community, returning to school, or continuing in-person learning.

     

    Only students with completed consent forms are able to participate in testing. If you do not want your family to participate, your student will not be included in the testing program. Though, we hope you do! If you decline, it will not negatively impact your child, but you will be expected to have them tested on your own should the need arise. 

     

    Regular testing empowers us to make these informed decisions about in-person learning and allows students, teachers, and staff to come to school with peace of mind.

     

    To learn more about pooled testing, read the attached overview of Concentric’s pooled testing program and watch this video from another school using this service.
