John Phelan, Superintendent of Schools

Four National Guard members accompanied by CIC staff and our Director of Nursing Beth Rumley began Routine COVID-19 Safety Checks (pooled testing) in all our elementary schools last week to those students who submitted a consent form. We are excited this testing began at our elementary schools, and we will be sharing pooled testing data on the nursing website at a future date.
