Consent to Participate in Rapid Antigen COVID-19 Testing
Raintree Montessori School continues to explore ways to mitigate safety risks associated with the spread of COVID-19. The school will partner with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to provide daily (if applicable) rapid antigen (nasal swab) COVID-19 testing for students and staff 1) who have been identified as close contacts to a positive case, 2) are showing signs of COVID-19, or 3) before embarking on a field trip or other extra-curricular activity, if recommended.
Designated school staff will conduct the testing. The goal of COVID-19 testing is to keep students and staff safe and in school and participating in extra-curricular activities, if applicable; and to prevent the spread of the virus in our community.
Raintree Montessori School requires parent/guardian consent to participate in COVID-19 testing. Without consent, students and staff identified as close contacts after a COVID-19 exposure must quarantine for 10 days from the date of exposure, unless they 1) show proof they are fully vaccinated (two weeks after final dose of vaccine) and continue to show no symptoms, OR 2) continue to show no symptoms and provide the school a PCR or antigen test or a note from the local health department as proof of testing positive for COVID-19 within the last three months, OR 3) show proof of negative testing from another COVID-19 testing site as outlined in Raintree’s communication about the applicable exposure.
If consent is not given and a negative test result is required to participate in an extracurricular activity, proof of a negative test from another COVID-19 testing site will be required.
