As you may know, on December 22nd, the Governor and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced that it would offer millions of families across the state free at-home COVID-19 test kits for students returning from winter break. The tests arrived in the Ventura County Office of Education (VCOE) last week and have been delivered to our school site.
As such, in partnership with CDPH and VCOE, we are able to provide each of our students with an On/Go 10-minute COVID-19 at home Antigen Self-Test Kit (containing two tests each) to administer at home as needed (if exposed, or if symptoms develop). Per VCPH, the ideal time to test would be 5-7 days after a close contact exposure or if exposure is unknown 3-5 days after symptoms begin. Tests will expire at the end of February 2022. Please keep the second test in the box for future use or use at the end of the 10 day quarantine period.
There is no requirement to have a negative test to be able to attend school. However, SPHS strongly recommends that students utilize these tests as COVID-19 cases are on the rise and use is encouraged when knowingly exposed or if symptomatic. Testing students at home is voluntary, and test kits are provided as a way to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community and keep our students, staff, and their families safe and in school.
