Please encourage students to continue to test twice a week. We are currently experiencing a higher rate of infection in this area.
Testing continues to play a crucial role, in and out of classrooms, in our fight against COVID-19.

Reporting test results can be done simply and quickly, from mobiles, online or by phone, and should be completed straightaway. Reporting not only supports contact tracing in the event of a positive case but also assists our understanding of community rates of infection.
