COVID Testing option in Kent School District locations

  • In November we announced that we finalized our partnership with Precision Lab Management to provide COVID tests in the KSD at all secondary schools multiple times each week. We began piloting the program with staff and student-athletes. Starting November 8, these testing sites opened to all KSD students, families, and staff.

    The testing locations and schedules are intended to accommodate KSD students, staff, and family who are symptomatic and/or have testing requirements for work or activities. Testing sites are open first to the staff and students of that school, then to the entire KSD community and the public.  

    The COVID-19 tests are free, though you will need to fill out the required fields, a consent form, and your insurance information as any other testing facility would. It is essential to complete this information before your first test, or you will not get tested. But, again, this is a one-time task.

    If you are tested at one of our KSD sites, you will receive a text or email about your test results. In addition, KSD will run a daily report to ensure that each employee who received an approved exemption follows the 7-day negative test accommodation. KSD will also run reports for student-athletes aligned to Department of Health guidelines.

    KSD Covid Testing Schedule

    Before your first test, you will need to register with Precision Lab Mgt. You will need to fill out a consent form and your insurance information as any other testing facility would. It is essential to complete this information before your first test, or you will not get tested. This is a one-time task.

    Testing sites have additional time for KSD staff only. 

    Posted end times are definite, even if there is a line to ensure that collected samples can be sent to the lab for processing. Any testing not completed by 5 pm will require an additional 24 hours to process results.
