The District has opted in to the free screening program offered to all Oregon K-12 students by the Oregon Health Authority. This is an optional weekly saliva at-home COVID screening test that parents can choose to sign their students up for. Participation in the program and all results are confidential, however, positive COVID-19 results must be reported to the local public health authority for case investigation and contact tracing. Parents can sign up online at LabDash.net They must complete a consent form shown below (also available at schools), return it to their student's school and pick up a testing kit. Each school will establish a drop-box for weekly collections. For more information, email Santiam Hospital at email@example.com or call 503-769-9126.
Please note this is a screening program so parents who wish to test their child as the result of contact tracing or a class-wide notification will need to contact their health care provider. As more testing sites become available locally, we will send more information.
