Consent for Student COVID-19 Testing

The Hoosick Falls Central School District is seeking your consent to test your child for COVID-19 infection using the COVID-19 Rapid Test. The use of this rapid test would only occur if your child’s school is open for in-person instruction and falls within a state-designated "yellow zone". Schools in a "yellow zone" are required to test 20% of in-person students, teachers, and staff members to remain open for in-person instruction.

If you consent, your child may receive a free diagnostic test for the COVID-19 virus that will be administered by a certified or licensed medical provider (CNA, LPN, or RN) or otherwise trained and qualified individual. A rapid COVID-19 test will be used, which will involve inserting a small swab, similar to a Q-Tip, into the front of the nose. We will notify you if your child tests positive for COVID-19. Any students who test positive will be sent home and must be kept at home until meeting Rensselaer County Public Health criteria to return to school. Please contact your child’s doctor immediately to review the test results should your child test positive for COVID-19.

Testing is not mandatory, and no one will be excluded from school because they choose not to be tested. However, if we do not receive consent from at least 20% of students and staff, we would likely be forced to shift to fully online instruction.
