WEEKLY On-Campus School Testing for Students & Staff with WorkSite Labs I am pleased to inform you that Woodside School has partnered with Worksite Labs to provide weekly COVID testing for all students and staff for any registered students. WorkSite Labs recently signed an MOU with the County Office of Education to provide COVID testing for school districts.
While we cannot mandate student testing at this time, it is highly recommended that all students participate. I am hopeful that we will have 100% student participation as this will be the school’s main testing source. Testing will take place one day each week, on campus, and during the school day. Parents/Guardians will need to opt-in by signing up and completing the required forms below. We are hopeful to begin testing on Monday, October 11.
Woodside School District’s COVID-19 Testing Program is designed to provide diagnostic screening testing for all students and staff of the Woodside School District. The San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) and Woodside School District have partnered with Worksite Labs, Inc. (WSL) to provide testing at no cost to students, faculty, staff, and parents of Woodside.
We ask that you register your child or children as soon as possible. Please review the following links as they contain important registration information.
