Surveillance Testing Program Webinar

Dear Medway families, 

It has been wonderful to get the school year started!  An essential area of focus throughout the planning for a return to school has been the health and safety of our school community.  We have all experienced fear and anxiety with the return to school, for ourselves for our children.  The virus, and the possibility that there are asymptomatic carriers, has been especially concerning.  In an effort to continue to try and minimize risk within our school community, the Medway Public Schools has been exploring COVID-19 Surveillance Testing for students, faculty and staff.  Pool testing would be conducted approximately every other week and continue throughout the duration of the 2020-2021 school year.  The results we gain from testing will allow us to quickly identify positive cases within our school community and take action that is connected to each specific circumstance.  I believe that regular surveillance testing will allow us to more quickly, and appropriately react and respond to situations.  

We have planned a webinar to share more information on this potential testing program, and to gauge community interest in moving forward.  The webinar has been scheduled for Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.  The webinar requires pre-registration.  You can register for the webinar here:  Exploring COVID-19 Surveillance Testing in the Medway Public Schools.  We hope that you are able to attend so that you can share feedback with us.

 

Sincerely,

  

Armand Pires, Ph.D.

Superintendent of Schools
