Pooled Testing Policy Update
Posted 04/01/2021 01:56PM

 

Good afternoon,

We are writing today to inform you of a policy recently approved by the school committee at their 03/31 meeting. This policy states:

“Any and all students, including homeschooled and remote-learning students, who participate in school supported junior varsity and varsity athletics, or who participate in any in-person after school extra-curricular or co-curricular activity including drama and clubs must participate in the school’s weekly pooled testing program.”

In short, students participating in in-person after school activities must participate in the pool testing program to be considered eligible. A student who does not participate in pool testing in any given week will no longer be considered eligible for extra-curricular activities until they participate in testing the following week or provide the school with a negative result from a PCR test administered by a physician or testing center. To participate in pool testing a consent form needs to be completed and submitted either digitally through the provided link or by returning a paper consent form to Nurse Russell, links to printable forms are provided below.

 

The pool testing schedule at MGRS is as follows:

A cohort – Monday during school

Remote students – Tuesday after school from 2:30-3:30

B cohort – Thursday during school
