Information on COVID-19 Testing

Click on this link for an Online Consent Form or Paper Form

COVID-19 testing will be required for all students participating in hybrid learning in grades Prek-2. Because testing will need to be performed regardless of a parent or guardian’s availability at the time a test will be administered, prior consent for testing is required for all students who participate in hybrid learning. To consent to this testing, you need to review the consent form, complete the requested information, and submit it to the School District of Philadelphia.  If you picked hybrid participation for your child but do not complete and return this form acknowledging your consent to the testing program, your child will continue to participate in their class through digital participation as they have been doing this school year.
