A few reminders as we return from Spring Break:
- Students return to school on Tuesday, 4/19. Monday, 4/18 is a 1/2 Day PD day, 1/2 day Records day for teachers.
- All students and staff must “test to return” on Monday, 4/18 and upload a negative COVID test to https://dcpsreopenstrong.com/safereturn/
- Test kits were distributed to Lafayette students Thursday, April 7. If your student did not receive a test kit, please visit a District COVID Center or a Rapid Test Pick Up Site to receive one.
- On Monday, April 18, take the easy-to-use, at-home test and follow the instructions provided HERE. Families may choose to utilize their own testing option, but tests administered before April 18 will not be accepted.
Upload your test results the same day: Provide proof of your test results to https://dcpsreopenstrong.com/safereturn/ by 5:00 pm on Monday, 4/18.
Please note that students will not be permitted to attend school until they provide proof of a negative test result following spring break. If a student arrives at school without completing a test, families will be provided with a test kit to administer. Unaccompanied students will be tested on-site by trained medical professionals but may face a lengthy wait outside before starting the school day. If you choose to opt your child out of rapid antigen tests, your child must quarantine for 10 days and cannot attend school during this time.
If your student tests positive, please email us at . Students must follow all isolation guidance from DC Health and your child’s healthcare provider. Individuals who test positive cannot report for in-person activities and should remain at home during their isolation period. This includes students who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
