  • WEEKLY COVID TAKE-AT-HOME TEST

    To families enrolled in the OHSU Covid-19 testing program:

    Sample kits will be sent home this Thursday 12/ 9 and next Thursday 12/16.  Collection days will be Friday mornings 12/10 and 12/17. 

    You MUST use two labels each week. One label will adhere to the test vial, and the other label should be attached to the plastic bag. 

    Important information for this week:

    In order to participate in testing, your student(s) must return their kit to their first period teacher the morning after distribution.  We can not accept any late samples.

    Please keep the instructions and extra labels in a safe place. The label supply the student was given is good for 12 weeks. We do not have extra labels at school. If you lose your labels, we will have to order new ones from OHSU. That could take a few weeks.

    How to enroll for future testing:

    It's not too late to participate in the free weekly COVID-19 screening testing program. To sign up, please return signed copies of the opt-ins forms. You can access them now using the links below:

    Both the OHSU and OHA Opt-In Forms are required.

    Additional program details:

    If I enroll my child in this testing program, what should I expect?

    1. Families who wish to participate in the testing program must fill out the consent forms and health authorization forms. Print, sign, and return the forms to the MLC office.
    2. Our school will receive testing kits to send home every week.
    3. Every "test return" morning, your student will spit into the test tube.  (Test return days will mostly be the next morning after distribution, but distribution days will vary based on OHSU's availability and MLC closure days.)
    4. Please return the spit sample that same morning to your first period teacher. Samples will be collected by OHSU for transportation to the lab for testing.
    5. OHSU will share the results within 48 hours of the specimen being dropped off at school. You will receive a secure email with your child's results. Please note: PPS will not receive the results of your student’s test. 

    If there's a positive (or inconclusive) result, we ask that you keep your student home from school. Please call us immediately and we will follow the guidance provided by our partners at the Multnomah Health Department. 

    If you have questions about this program, please contact the office at MLC by calling 503-916-5737.

    Thank you!
