Below are resources available to our schools and communities regarding COVID-19, including information about the disease and ways in which we can work together to help prevent its spread.

The Diagnostic Testing Program allows students who become symptomatic at school to receive a PCR test with parental consent. If you would like your student to be able to participate in this program you may give consent at any time. We encourage parents/guardians to do this now so that when the need arises there will be no delays in testing their student. The student will not be tested without notifying the parent/guardian before the test is given.

School Based Screening (SBS) Program
Our new School Based Screening Program will begin on Monday, February 21. Parents/guardians who would like their student to be screened for Covid-19 after an exposure, can fill out the consent form for your student’s school (see below). Once the form is completed, your student will be given a rapid antigen test on days three and five after exposure. The results will be reported back to you the same day. These results will also be reported to the local health department.
Communicable Disease Pay Leave Form
Employees who test positive may request a letter from the health department of their county of residence to receive communicable disease pay in lieu of using sick days when they are isolated or excluded. Residents of Yadkin County may request this letter using the Google Form provided by the Yadkin County Health Department.
