The Grays Harbor DOH has approved the our district plan to host and conduct COVID rapid testing within the district. HSD will utilize the Premier Medical Group USA to provide rapid antigen testing to students, staff, and community members at HHS and HMS. You will need to use the QR code with this post to register yourself or student prior to testing. Once registered the testing process takes less than a minute and results are communicated via message to your smartphone in about 15-30 minutes. As we plan for Learn2Return and Test2Stay options HSD will now include a modified quarantine option that will allow students that are not fully vaccinated that have been identified as a close contact to test and stay in school when they have negative results and are not symptomatic. During our winter sports seasons Athletes are required to test regularly as well. Our partnership with PMG will help with the testing. The district also has trained staff in each building that are trained to administer rapid antigen testing as well. In the coming days we will share additional information regarding rapid COVID testing including schedules and updated guidance on quarantine options. Follow the QR code to register for PMG testing.
On Monday, October 4th, our High School and Middle School students are set to return to in-person learning at school. Please have students remember to bring their chromebooks and any homework that was not turned in during the remote learning. We are looking forward to having our secondary students return. If your child is showing any symptoms related to illness we ask for your help by keep them at home. You can contact your child's school to discuss the symptoms and get guidance on when they should return to school. We are looking forward to a safe and healthy restart and can only do this with the support of our students and families. Have a great long weekend Grizzlies.
