Pooled Testing Resources

Good afternoon members of the Lee Public Schools community.  Last week I sent you some information about pooled testing and our intentions of moving forward with these practices.  We are still going forward, and I wanted to let you know that there will be a webinar hosted on Wednesday evening at 6:00 to discuss the process.  During the webinar, you will learn more about how pooled testing at schools can help teachers and students get back to in-person learning more safely. This presentation will be followed up by a Q&A session with CIC’s CEO, Tim Rowe. All sessions are recorded and will be available for viewing afterward.  [Note: CIC is the vendor with whom we are working to conduct these tests].  If you would like to register for this webinar, please go here: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJErcuGgqDkoHtcH-3vyxcsj9bISX0edhEdS

Please complete one digital consent form per student.
