Dear Lakeland Families,
Good news! As planned, we will discontinue daily screeners for staff and students as of Friday, September 24. For the health and safety of our community, please be vigilant and keep students home when they are not feeling well.
I also wanted to send a friendly reminder about our free COVID-19 screening testing program with the Westchester County Department of Health.
All families are highly encouraged to allow their child/children (vaccinated AND unvaccinated) to participate in this free, school-based COVID-19 screening testing program. The program will use non-invasive, self-collected saliva samples that are appropriate and painless for all ages. Samples will be processed using accurate and reliable PCR analysis to identify positive cases.
Families interested in participating in voluntary testing should read and complete the consent form for each student in your household. Please return completed consent forms to the school nurse by Wednesday, September 22.
Have a great weekend.
Brendan Lyons, Ed. D.
