In-School COVID-19 Testing for Students (Added December 1, 2021)
You can give consent for in-school COVID-19 testing on Lansingburgh’s FamilyID page here: https://www.familyid.com/programs/covid-19-parental-testing-consent-form-2021-22
Lansingburgh is required by the New York State Department of Health to test unvaccinated staff and offer to test unvaccinated students whose parents or guardians consent to weekly testing. Only students whose parents/guardians have provided consent to the school will be tested.
General surveillance testing will be used to detect asymptomatic COVID-19 infections in unvaccinated students and staff using a non-invasive rapid antigen test. To see a video demonstration of a test being administered, click this link: https://youtu.be/AvFLbHbt1bs.
