Voluntary COVID-19 Testing and Parent Consent

  • The District is requesting your consent to test a percentage of students and staff for COVID-19. This testing is voluntary and not a requirement of New York State. Below are a few points to consider:

    • The test is different from the ones you may have already experienced. The new rapid COVID-19 test that will be used is less invasive and involves a quick swab inside the lower part of the nose.
    • Testing will be done on campus by a trained member of our nursing staff, at no cost to the parent. You will be notified before any testing is done.  You will be contacted if your child’s test comes back positive.

    Please fill out the form below in order for your student to receive the free diagnostic test while at school. You will need to fill one out for EACH student you have attending a Rochester City School.
