Parent Message: Update on Ravinia Health Testing

Dear Parents,

I hope you and your families had a wonderful winter break. It is always exciting to witness the energy that our students bring into the schools with the start of a new year!

As we head into this new year, I wanted to share an update regarding our weekly testing program with Ravinia Health. The District has been reviewing its data and has found that less than 10 percent of students are utilizing this program, while several families continue to unenroll each week. Due to the lack of use, the District has determined that it will discontinue its weekly testing program effective Wednesday, January 11th. Our final tests will be collected on Tuesday, January 10th. 

We will remain in close partnership with Ravinia Health should there be a need to reinstate the program. As a reminder, every U.S. household is currently eligible for 4 free at-home tests to be shipped via the USPS. The District will continue to track positive cases via the COVID Dashboard

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Sincerely,

John Deiter, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools
