COVID-19 Community Testing

Dear Parents and Guardians:
 
We are hosting two community COVID-19 testing events for students each Monday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at alternating school sites following the schedule below. You can schedule into the future weeks, but we ask that you cancel via the confirmation email should your plans change and your student will not be able to make their appointment. Weekly COVID-19 PCR testing is a requirement for all athletes participating with indoor sports.
 
Here are the details for next week:
  • Date: Monday, April 26, 2021
  • Time: 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • Location: Las Lomas and Miramonte High Schools
  • Test: RT-PCR Test (Viral Nasal Swab)
 
Process Summary: COVID-19 testing is covered and paid for under the federal CARES Act and the vendor will bill your insurance carrier, so you will be asked to bring a copy of your insurance card with you. You can also be tested if you do not have health insurance. In any case, there will be no cost to you, although you may receive a notice from your insurance carrier after testing
 
Event Sign-Up: Please schedule your appointment through these links. Appointments must be made by 5:00 p.m. the Friday prior to the testing date.
 
4/26/2021 Las Lomas HS  // Miramonte HS
5/03/2021 Acalanes HS // Campolindo HS
 
 
Testing Day: It is critical that you bring the following on test day. (Otherwise testing may be delayed.) 
 
After Testing: The sample(s) will be sent to the laboratory to process and results will be sent to our local health department; and individual participants will be able to access results through the PMH Laboratory website after 3 business days from the date of the testing. No further actions will be required if the results are negative. If the results for the RT-PCR COVID-19 test are positive, a representative from the lab will contact you, and a consultation can be scheduled with a lab scientist or doctor to review the results and next steps.
