HS Weekly Update 9/7/21

High School Students and Families,

I am excited to share that we have partnered with the NC DHHS and Mako Medical to provide Covid testing for our students and staff. Click here for a flyer with information. I hope you’ll take advantage of this free service.

Student Registration Link

Staff Registration Link

****The link will ask you several Covid questions, checkboxes for approval, and HIPPA compliance. The registration page will come after you’ve answered those questions and given consent.****

****If your child has Covid-like symptoms, we will notify you and get your consent prior to testing your child. Pre-registration will speed up the process for us.****

Here are some additional updates from the high school world:
