The direction around the distribution of Rapid Tests to students has changed. Students will only be receiving additional rapid tests if they have been away from school due to an illness and have used their rapid tests. If your child has been away for an extended period of time and has used the tests previously provided, please complete the Form below to request additional tests.  Tests will only be provided under these circumstances. 

Rapid Tests are provided to be used when a student has at least 2 mild or 1 severe symptom, at least 24 hours apart (as per Ontario’s Screening Tool’s Next Steps). If a student has only 1 mild symptom, do not use a rapid test but rather follow the Ontario Screening tool’s Next Steps (i.e.. Isolate for at least 24-48 hours).
