Apr. 8 update: COVID at-home test kits available

A message from Dr. Wiles:

Dear GCSD Families,

Spring recess is quickly approaching! I hope it will be a time of rest and relaxation for all Guilderland Central School District families.To ensure that students and families enjoy a safe break and return to school, the district is providing rapid, at-home COVID-19 test kits to all GCSD families who would like one. With increased travel over break and the emergence of a new variant, we hope families will use these test kits to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the GCSD community.

Elementary families can use this Google form to arrange to pick up test kits or to have students bring them home.

Middle and high school families are free to pick up test kits at their students’ respective school buildings. Test kits will be available in the lobbies of FMS and GHS.
