This non-invasive COVID-19 test is VOLUNTARY AND FREE to all District 202 students and staff, and is at no cost to the school district.

***The SHIELD Test is a significant and powerful tool that will help ensure the health and well-being of all students, staff, and families by identifying persons who may be contagious to prevent further transmission.

Parents/Guardians must complete the SHIELD COVID Testing Consent Form (which is linked in the Parent Letter, below) for each child they would like to participate in the weekly testing.

***Parents/Guardians must choose – or “Opt In” -- to give consent for their child(ren) to be tested.
