Student Testing Consent Form Information
The State of New York has determined that the Grand Island School District is located within an “Orange Zone,” as defined by the New York State Cluster Action Initiative. As a result, weekly testing of students and staff is required due to elevated rates of COVID-19 transmission in the area. The District is required to test 20% of in-person students over the course of a month for as long as the District remains in a designated “Orange Zone” or until the State modifies or lifts the zone requirements.
In order to test your child, we need your consent. Students will be selected on a random basis each week, so if your child is selected one week, they may or may not be tested the following week. All testing will be performed following New York State Department of Health (“DOH”) guidelines and administered by our school nurses.
