Superintendent Messages to Parents:

March 29, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians of Students in Grades 6-12:

As part of our ongoing efforts to safely reopen our schools and keep them open for in-person instruction, we want to offer you the opportunity to take advantage of free COVID-19 rapid antigen testing for you and your child before returning from Spring Break.

The testing will be provided on Friday, April 9th and Saturday, April 10th in the Patterson High School Gymnasium.   The rapid antigen test is quick but mildly invasive.  It is not recommended for small children.  However, the advantage of this test is that results are available within approximately ten minutes and have an accuracy rate of about 85%.

If you or your child tests positive, you can share this information with your primary care physician for further assessment and treatment as needed.  Additionally, students who test positive or have been exposed to an immediate family member who tests positive, will quarantine at home the week of April 12-18th thereby significantly reducing the possibility of spread in our schools.

We have been utilizing the services of this testing provider over the past two months with our staff and student-athletes.  We have found their services to be very professional.  Although it is very unlikely that your child will test positive, the test provides all our students with one additional strategy to prevent the possible spread of COVID-19 and keep our schools open and operating safely.

We hope you will consider taking advantage of this opportunity.  You can sign up and schedule your appointments quickly and easily using the links on the attached flier.  


Dr. Philip M. Alfano, Superintendent
