New COVID Drop Off Dates
Posted on 01/15/2021
Dear LS Students, Families and Staff,

I am writing to alert you to a schedule change for COVID sample collection. Starting in February we will be shifting collections days to Mondays and Tuesdays.

We continue to accept new enrollments on a rolling to participate in our testing program starting in January. New enrollment must be completed by the end of the Tuesday prior to the next round of testing. Cost for new enrollment is prorated by week. Here is a link to how to enroll.

Remaining sample collection dates are as follows:

                                                                                          Last Date To Enroll      Fee

Thursday, January 28 and Friday, January 29        1/22                          $150

Thursday, February 4 and Friday, February 5        1/26                          $135


Monday, February 8 and Tuesday, February 9         2/2                           $120

February Vacation: Wednesday, February 17            2/9                           $105

Monday, February 22 and Tuesday, February 23   2/16                          $90

Monday, March 1 and Tuesday, March 2                   2/23                          $75

Monday, March 8 and Tuesday, March 9                   3/2                            $60

Monday, March 15 and Tuesday, March 16               3/9                           $45

Monday, March 22 and Tuesday, March 23               3/16                        $30

Monday, March 29 and Tuesday, March 30               3/23                        $15

Continuation of pool testing beyond the end of March will require additional funding. At this time I am exploring funding options to share with you later. Given the differences between our program and that offered by the state I did not apply for LS to be a part of the state pool testing program. Here is a link to the presentation from the School Committee meeting of 1/19/21 that outlines the differences. The presentation also describes the advent of the BiNAX antigen test that will be available for use later this month.

This link is provides our COVID related data for LS. This is an active link and is updated weekly.

Thank you,
