Cardinals News · New Spring Athlete Testing Info


We have decided to try a new spring athlete testing schedule in hopes that it may help with contact tracing and close contact quarantines. The idea is to have as many athletes as we can test on Monday morning before school. That way, if we do have positives we would hope that they would be more contained knowing that they have not been in a classroom in close contact with other students in the past 48 hours. See info memo below for testing times. We thank you for your patience and continued support as we work through the obstacles put in front of us during this spring season. Go CARDS!!

              

 

Testing Reminders: 

Testing will take place once a week during designated date and times. Students will be asked to go to the DHS gym, entering through the West Athletic entrance (Door # 14) and sit in bleachers until their group is called down to the AMR. Once tested they will be asked to go back to the gym and wait until they are dismissed.

We will STILL do MAKE UP DAYS for students who missed their testing date/time on Monday. We understand that some students, especially virtual students who do not drive, may have a hard time making this Monday morning testing time. They can come to a make testing time. This will be Tuesday – Thursdayin the DHS Athletic office from 8:30am to 9:30am. Students can stop in during that hour to get their test done.

We will keep track of who has been tested. If a student does not test during on Monday they will need to sit out until they do get tested, unless otherwise directed by the athletic director.

If a student has had COVID in the last 90 days, and has a doctor’s note and PCR RESULTS that show the date they were tested (WITH A PCR TEST), they are exempt from the spring rapid testing. (THEY MUST HAVE HAD A POSITIVE PCR TEST AND IT MUST BE TURNED IN TO THE DHS ATHLETIC OFFICE.)

*If students get vaccinated, they must still be tested weekly.

 

Testing Schedule:

Students will be tested Monday Mornings before school starts. Students will give us their name and sport they play.  

IF A STUDENT HAS TO BE DROPPED OFF FOR TESTING THEY MAY REMAIN IN THE GYM BLEACHERS UNTIL SCHOOL Begins.
