COVID Screenings in Mapleton Schools

  • Updated Oct. 6, 2021

    Mapleton is pleased to offer all students and staff the opportunity to participate in on-site COVID screenings. This extra layer of protection helps us keep our schools and classrooms open by detecting the virus early and getting ahead of asymptomatic spread.

    We are working with two providers to meet the needs of our preschool students, K-12 students, and students participating in Athletics, Performing Arts, and Air Force JROTC. Please see the different options below to learn more about on-site screening for your child.


Grades PK-12

  • GRADES PreK-12 - Weekly in-school testing for students and staff provided by CDPHE and Mobile Health

    If you would like to have your child(ren) screened for COVID at school every week, you must complete a consent form.

    Please note the following:

    • Preschool families: CDPHE COVID screening has expanded to preschool students enrolled in Mapleton sites where CDPHE screenings are currently in place. Please fill out the consent form for your child’s specific school. They also are eligible to receive the gift card incentive. 
    • Parents/Guardians must complete the consent process for each child enrolled in Mapleton.
    • Parents/Guardians must complete the consent form specific to the school in which their child is enrolled. For example, if a parent/guardian has two children enrolled at Academy High School,  they must complete a separate consent form for each child enrolled. If parent/guardian has one child enrolled in Academy High School and another enrolled in Clayton Partnership, the parent/guardian must complete the Academy consent form for the child at Academy and the Clayton consent form for their child at Clayton.

    COVID-19 Testing FAQ 

    Is it mandatory for my child to participate in COVID-19 testing at school?

    This program is voluntary and students under the age of 18 are required to have parental or guardian consent on file in order to participate.

     

    Is there a charge to participate in testing?

    This service is available at no charge.

     

    How often will my child be tested?

    Testing will take place every week at your child’s school.

     

    What kind of test will be used?

    Antigen and PCR nasal swab and/or salvia tests.

     

    How and when will I receive my child’s results?

    Results will be provided to you via text, email, or phone call within 24-48 hours. In the event you receive a positive test result for your child, promptly seek advice from a trusted medical provider.

     

    Can my child be tested at school if they are showing symptoms or were exposed to COVID-19?

    No. If your child is showing symptoms or was exposed to COVID-19, please ensure they stay home and contact your health care provider or visit one of the free testing sites available in your area.

     

    Our schools are not testing sites if your child has symptoms. We are providing on-site testing as a routine way of protecting our students and staff and identifying those who may be asymptomatic. It is important to continue to keep our students and staff healthy and our classrooms open by not sending your child to school if they are sick or showing symptoms.
