Point of Care Testing at Genet:

Last week, the district put out a notification to families regarding Point of Care Testing that started this week.  Please click here if you missed it or would like to review the information posted: Point of Care Testing. Point of Care testing is option for families, but if a family would like to have their child signed up, they must complete a consent form that should be turned into the Main Office, attention of Mr. Grignon or Mrs. Condo.  You can find the consent for here: COVID-19 Testing Consent Form.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to either Mrs. Condo, Genet School Nurse, or myself.

Columbia Lacrosse Club:

Sickness and Return Policy:

Just a reminder to our families about the return to school policy.  If your child(ren) is sent home from school and exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19, the district’s policy is for families to take the child to see their primary care physician.  The doctor’s office can decide to either administer a covid test (PCR) or write an alternative diagnosis on the return to school form (which can be found here: Return to School Letter).  The return to school form must be received by our school prior to the student returning to Genet.  This form can be faxed or emailed to Mrs. Condo or myself.

If you have any questions regarding this policy, please feel free to reach out to our nurse, Mrs. Condo, or myself at Genet.  I appreciate your understanding regarding this matter.
