Red Raider Community:
We have had an awesome start to the school year. As typical, we have to smooth out all logistical issues such as transportation, entry and arrival to each building, etc. Those items have improved each day. Most importantly, the students have demonstrated such excitement to be back full time!
I’m also writing to follow up with further information regarding the mandatory weekly testing program for staff, as well as the optional weekly testing for non-vaccinated students, including diagnostic testing for students demonstrating COVID symptoms during the school day.
We are partnering with the Saratoga County Department of Health and will be working directly with their contract partner Quadrant Bioscience. I’m participating in a webinar on Tuesday, hosted by Quadrant for further instructions on rollout and implementation. You can expect to receive parent consent forms, as well as registration links for the Quadrant system. If this is something you choose to participate in, the consent forms would need to be completed prior to any testing.
Here is a video of a how the screening testing process will work

You can expect more information regarding testing and the registration process soon.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend!
