Special Schedule/Student Pool Testing
On Tuesday, November 30, EPS will operate with a special daily schedule and a staggered start time to facilitate COVID-19 PCR Pool Testing for our student body following the Thanksgiving Holiday. Please see the schedule below to determine the time your child should arrive on campus. (Students should arrive on campus 15 minutes before their testing period, but not before.) All seventh- through twelfth-grade students will be tested. At their designated arrival time, students should proceed to the TALI Theatre. Following the COVID pool test, students will head to their next scheduled class.

Pool testing is anonymous and combines the results of everyone within the “pool” into a single test. Students will be tested by Advisory group; each Advisory group will be a “pool.” Tests are self-administered (under observation) using a shallow nasal swab. Results are provided only to EPS within twenty-four hours. If any of the pools test positive, we will immediately notify the parents of anyone within that positive pool. If tests are negative, no further steps will be necessary. If you are not contacted, you can assume your child’s pool result was negative.
If your student has tested positive for COVID in the last 90 days they should not participate in pool testing. Please notify the COVID Task Force for alternative testing.
And as a final reminder, grades 5 and 6 will be attending remote classes from November 30 to December 6.
Please contact COVID Task Force if you have questions or concerns.Back to the Main Calendar
