ATTENTION! REQUIRED COVID 19 TESTING FOR HYBRID STUDENTS
COVID-19 testing will be required for all students participating in hybrid learning in grades Prek-2. Because testing will need to be performed regardless of a parent or guardian’s availability at the time a test will be administered, the prior consent for testing is required for all students who participate in hybrid learning. To consent to this testing, you need to review the consent form, complete the requested information, and submit it to the School District of Philadelphia. If you picked hybrid participation for your child but do not complete and return this form acknowledging your consent to the testing program, your child will continue to participate in their class virtually and will not be permitted to participate in hybrid learning when it becomes available.
The paper and online forms are available for parents to access HERE
