Silver Falls School District is pleased to offer a new opt-in program for COVID-19 screening for students.
This program, offered in partnership with Santiam Hospital, provides opportunities for testing in the several scenarios, each of which is totally optional, and you may provide consent to any or all types of testing:
- On-site testing by qualified staff members if your student develops new symptoms of COVID-19 while at school.
- On-site testing by qualified staff members if your student is exposed to COVID-19 in a school group and the local public health department recommends testing. (Note that while you may provide consent to this option, we are not offering this testing until further notice).
- Weekly screening tests for COVID-19.
If you choose to opt-in and provide consent for weekly screening tests, you will be provided with all appropriate instructions, kits, and a schedule for weekly drop-off of samples. Students will not be tested without consent.
If you are interested in more information about this program, we invite you to read through the documents to the right. To provide consent and opt-in, please fill out the forms available to the right.
If you require assistance filling out the digital form please contact the district office at (503) 873-5303.
We’re grateful to Santiam Hospital for partnering with us to offer this service. We are looking into the possibility of providing additional testing opportunities, including at-home diagnostic testing kits, as soon as we can. We appreciate your continued patience and support, as well as everything you are doing to help keep our schools a safe and healthy place for students and staff members alike.
