Optional COVID-19 Testing For Students Beginning the Week of November 15

Aldrin Elementary School Families,

Optional COVID-19 screening testing will begin the week of November 15 for students who are not fully vaccinated. FCPS is partnering with LongView International Technology Solutions, Inc. (LTS) to provide testing services for students. 

Optional screening testing for Aldrin students will take place on Thursdays from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM at Aldrin. Staff at our school will work with all students to ensure they are scheduled for testing with LTS during their scheduled time at our school.

For a student testing at school, a one-time parent/legal guardian consent is required to begin COVID screening testing. You may withdraw your consent for testing at any time. If you want your child to begin participating in COVID-19 screening testing, you must pre-register your child(ren) and provide consent using the LTS secure online portal. If you do not want your child to participate in COVID-19 screening testing, no action is required. You will have the option each week to update your child’s vaccination and consent for testing.

For all the details about optional COVID-19 screening testing, visit the FCPS website and review the FCPS COVID-19 Screening Testing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document.

If you have questions about how testing will be conducted here at Aldrin, please contact James Chrisman (703)904-3800.

Screening testing is a recommended layered prevention strategy that keeps Aldrin safe for in-person learning. Thank you for considering enrolling your child. 

 

Thank you,

 

Shane Wolfe
