Participation in COVID-19 Testing

As NPS prepares for a full in-person return to school for students at all levels, they are STRONGLY ENCOURAGING families to enroll their student (s) in the COVID-19 testing program. Testing is one of the best ways we have to quickly identify infection and reduce the possibility of in school transmission. Here are 3 reasons to enroll:

  • It’s easy! Complete the opt-in in Aspen (here’s the link!) High school students then create an account at JCM (do it here!) for access to a QR code they use to check in their sample. Pre-K – 8th grade students will receive their QR code from school staff.
  • It’s painless! This is NOT the “touch your brain” swab! This is a sample taken from the front of your nose with a Q-tip like swab. It’s super-fast and painless.
  • It makes a difference! The more students who participate, the better data we have on infection rates in our community. This means we can quickly identify infection, reduce the risk of in school transmission, limit quarantines, and keep our schools, athletics and other important activities open for the rest of the year!.

Bonus reason: This testing program is FREE to all families! Please consider enrolling your student today. Thanks in advance for doing your part to keep our schools safer.
