COVID-19 In-School Testing

Chester Academy is currently offering a program that enables out nurses to perform a Rapid Antigen COVID-19 test to students. The testing option will only be available to students whose parents, or guardians, have signed a permission form, have developed a COVID-19 symptom, and the nurse determines they may be well enough to remain at school. The test being performed is the BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test and supplies are very limited, therefore tests will be offered based on availability.

Participation in the testing program is completely voluntary and requires a permission form to be completed. If you have not received the Symptomatic COVID-19 Antigen Test Permission Form, it can be found here.

What is school nursing?

School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual or potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy and learning (NASN, 2010).
