Student and Staff Testing Information

Student and Staff COVID-19 Testing Information

The Watertown Public Schools is offering weekly voluntary student COVID-19 PCR pooled testing.

As the Watertown Public Schools transitioned students to in-person learning, protocols such as face coverings, hand washing, social distancing, and additional cleaning measures are in place to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission among students, teachers, and staff in school buildings. Student COVID-19 PCR pooled testing is an additional layer to ensure that our students and staff are safe in our schools as best we possibly can be.

 

Student testing will maximize the longevity of in-person learning by quickly detecting, tracing, and isolating COVID-19-positive individuals—whether or not they become symptomatic. And, it will provide families and staff with peace of mind. The current safety measures in place combined with testing for staff and students will lower the risk of transmission and allow more consistent access to in-person instruction for our students.
