minnesota department of health    

MDH announced a recommendation for all school-age youth returning to school, youth sports, or extracurricular activities, and their families, to get tested every two weeks through the end of the school year. 
While it is not a requirement, regular testing complements other safety measures  already in place, such as masking and social distancing at public schools across the state.   Getting tested every two weeks from now until the end of the school year can help keep schools open and sports operating, and ensure we are limiting the spread of  COVID-19.   

*This is voluntary and NOT required*

To learn more about the Minnesota Department of Health initiative to test kids and families please see the resources available at  COVID-19 Testing for Kids and Families.  

Mark your calendars to get tested for COVID-19 every 2 weeks.  

To get tested voluntarily you  can visit a community testing site, get tested at a pharmacy, get tested through your health care provider or order an at-home test.  THERE IS NO TESTING DONE AT THE SCHOOL. See the website above. 
  If you order an at home test and would like help in getting them to UPS, 
TPS will offer a courier service until the end of the school year.  

The courier service will be available on the following dates:
Tests must be received by 3:30 p.m.    3/11, 3/25, 4/8, 4/22, 5/6, 5/20.  
Results usually arrive within 24 hours through e-mail.  
 Learn more at www.mn.gov/COVID-19.
