COVID-19 Testing Program Begins Today
Our CHS COVID-19 testing program begins Friday, September 17. In order for your child (any minor under the age of 18) to participate in testing, a parent or guardian will need to register them for the program. Please use this link to do so.
Your registration will provide the one-time consent needed for your child’s participation throughout the school year as well as HIPAA authorization to share results of testing with the school.
Your results will be delivered to you by text or email within 24 hours, and you will be contacted directly if your child has a positive result. We will test weekly on Friday’s during the lunch period in F Building. Offered through the Louisiana Department of Health at no cost to participants or to our school, the program utilizes the highest quality PCR testing available and is administered by a trained healthcare team from Orion Laboratories.
We strongly encourage all of our families to register for testing to keep our school community safe. Along with our other mitigation measures, including masking, social distancing and encouraging vaccinations, our hope is that we will be able to continue with in-person learning and engaging in the kind of social interactions that are critical to the full CHS educational experience.
