Winter Break!

02/14/22-02/20/22: No School (Winter Break)

02/21- Students Return to School for In-Person Learning

I’d like to take a moment to remind the community to participate in available COVID testing on campus or offsite prior to returning to in-person learning next week.

ACTION REQUIRED –

Opt-In for Drew’s New Weekly Surveillance Testing Program

Dear Drew Families:

Effective the week of 2/21/2022, Viral Solutions will become Drew’s new vendor for weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing.  Similar to Atlanta Public Schools’ testing program, all students and staff who opt-in will be tested twice per week at no cost.  This new testing partnership is made possible through the Georgia Department of Public Health via a grant from the CDC that has been made available to every school in Georgia. 

While there is no cost for testing and no insurance information is needed, you are required to complete a new opt-in form before your student can be tested.  To ensure your student can be tested the week we return from Winter Break, please complete the opt-in form no later than February 20th.  You can opt-in via the links below.  (Please note: there are separate links of participation for each campus.)  A separate opt-in consent form must be completed for each student.

To provide opt-in consent for Elementary Academy students, click below:
COVID-19 Testing for Elementary Academy

Please complete opt-in for one campus only, PER CHILD.

 
To provide opt-in consent for Junior or Senior Academy students, click below:
COVID-19 Testing for Junior/Senior Academy

Thank you for your patience as we have been working to resolve testing issues and continue to do our best to keep staff and students safe.  Please remember to complete the opt-in form by Sunday, February 20th, as you must complete the opt-in consent form for each of your students before they can participate in the new testing program. 

Enjoy your Winter Break!
