Staff and Student Covid Testing
As we continue in-person learning, our focus remains on maintaining a consistent learning environment by continuing the health and safety protocols we implemented this past fall and also looking for strategic ways to add new layers of protection.
We’re pleased to share that our district has a new COVID-19 non-symptomatic staff and student saliva-based mobile testing program made possible through our ongoing partnership with COVIDCheck Colorado.
Testing will be available at our school from 7:30 to 10:00 a.m. on the following days in March:
Tuesday, March 16, 2021
Testing site will be set up at the south area of the school. Please look for Mobile Testing Signage.
COVID-19’s ability to spread from an infected person, even before they become symptomatic or if they remain asymptomatic, makes testing of non-symptomatic individuals even more important. In a school setting, receiving positive test results among non-symptomatic individuals can allow us:
To better isolate individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and potentially limit the spread of COVID-19 within our school community
Track the potential transmission and spread of COVID within our school
Both of these factors can help us in our effort to maintain a consistent learning environment for your child.
If you would like for your child to be offered the opportunity to participate in this voluntary, COVID screening, please click the link below and fill out the online consent form. Online pre-registration is easy or you can register your child on site at the testing location.
*Parents please select onsite screening during registration so that you can do on-going regular testing
Testing for elementary and K-8 school students will not be conducted without parent consent and parents will need to accompany their child to the testing location. Middle and high school students will still need online parent consent but a parent does not need to accompany their student to a testing location.
Saliva test participants should not have any food or drink 30 minutes before the test and no water 10 minutes before the test.
This testing will only be for district students and staff. As a reminder, any individual can receive a free COVID test at one of the standing COVIDCheck Colorado sites, including the Mountain Range High School site in Westminster.

Thank you for your continued partnership and commitment to ensuring the health and safety of our students, staff and community.
