  • TESTING FOR COVID-19 & INFORMATION UPDATES

     

    Dear Community,
     

    Dewey Academy is sharing the District's information below with all staff, students and families in the event you have any questions.  Dewey has been given At-home rapid test kits for staff, students and families to use in the event of COVID symptoms. Please read below for more information.

     

    _____________________________________________________________

    • Register and consent for COVID testing through the Primary website. Registering earlier will make it easier to access testing through our testing sites or through rapid response if needed. 

      • You must register each individual separately. 

      • Children under the age of 13 will need the consent of a parent/guardian.

    • There are three ways for families, students, and staff to access testing:

      • 10 regional testing locations where any community member can access rapid and PCR tests. Please encourage everyone to make appointments online ahead of time. Testing dates & times will be adjusted based on demand. Testing sites are generally open from 800am-400pm.  We encourage appointments but walk-up testing is also available. 

        • You may change your appointment at any time.

        • During your appointment, a trained health care professional will administer the test and upload the results for you.

        • You will get rapid test results within 15 minutes and PCR results will be sent to you in 24-48 hours.

      • Rapid Response Teams will come to schools in the event there is a positive case to provide testing on-site twice a week, for two weeks, to all prolonged close contacts and any other members of the school community who wish to be tested at that time. See the COVID Protocol Cheat Sheet for information about what happens when there is a positive, symptomatic, or prolonged close contact case.

      • At-home rapid test kits are available at all school sites for those who need them, are planning to use them within the week, AND will report their results online. 

        • Register on the Primary website to be eligible. 

        • Pick up a kit and instructions from your school or from one of the Testing Sites.  

        • The school office staff will document that you were issued a kit.

        • Complete the test within a few days and upload the results on the Primary website (instructions included with the kit).

      • Remember that a negative rapid test may NOT be used to return early to school if someone has symptoms or was in prolonged close contact. Only a PCR test administered by a healthcare professional (at our testing hubs or at another health care location) may be used to shorten the quarantine time for someone with symptoms or a prolonged close contact exposure. These tests usually take 1-2 days to process results.

    • Please get vaccinated, if you are eligible: We are scheduling vaccine pop-ups at OUSD schools every week. All vaccine pop-ups are open to any OUSD student, family, staff, or community member ages 12+. See more information at www.ousd.org/vaccine and the OUSD Vaccine Information Video for families here.  

     

    What should I do if I test positive for COVID?  Contact your students school right away, and begin isolating. A member of the OUSD COVID response team will contact you with next steps.


    Where do I get more information?  Please visit https://familycentral.ousd.org and the OUSD Family COVID Testing page.


     

    Additional information:

    At Home Test Kits: At-home test kits will be provided to students, families, or staff who need them and plan to use them within a week. They must register and upload their results in Primary.  

     

    We are very strongly encouraging all of you to get vaccinated, stay masked up (which is required for all OUSD staff and students), and get tested as soon as you experience any symptoms or have been exposed to a COVID positive individual.

     

    This folder has resources to support your school communities, including flyers in multiple languages about testing

    We know that there is genuine concern and anxiety around coming back to school, even as we are so excited about being back together again. We feel positive about our partnerships with the state and the county around testing and vaccines, and with our labor partners around our safety measures like improved ventilation and universal masking.

    Though the guidance has and will continue to change and evolve, we are committed to listening to our public health experts and our community, to being responsive to issues as they arise at our sites, and to communicating with all of you when we need to make changes to our plans.
