The Silver Consolidated School District is offering the “Test to Stay” program whereby students test for COVID-19 on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th day of quarantine. If the student remains negative, they can return to school for in-person learning. Parents are asked if their child has been exposed to a positive COVID case in the household, has come in contact with a person that has tested positive, or someone presents with COVID-19 symptoms in the household, to not send their child to school during this infectious period of the virus. The “Test to Stay” program is facilitated in the Silver Schools central office parking lot next to Fox Field from 7:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
