Christian County Public Schools has implemented an optional “Test to Stay” program for any staff or student who has a COVID close contact and are asymtomatic.
Under the “Test to Stay” program, CCPS students and staff who have been determined to have had a COVID close contact, may take a Covid test to ensure they are Covid negative. The “Test to Stay” clinic will be available each school day morning in the Performing Arts Center at Christian County Middle School. This clinic is for any acquired close contacts (students and staff) only. The clinic is only for students and staff and you must be asymtomatic, showing no COVID symptoms. Anyone exhibiting COVID symptoms should see their doctor or primary care facility for testing.
The clinic times will vary based on the COVID numbers. The School Covid officer will notify parents/students of clinic hours upon quarantine.
A parent/guardian must transport their student to the PAC and must sign a consent form (one consent form for the 5 days of testing after exposure). A lab form can be downloaded on the CCPS website and must be completed by a parent/guardian each visit.
Staff/Students who test Covid negative will receive a permission slip to check into school that day.
Anyone with questions may contact CCPS Health Director Megan Kidd, at 270-887-7000.
