In partnership with the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department, FCPS offers rapid testing to students and employees who exhibit common COVID-19 symptoms at school. The tests are administered by school nurses and other trained staff in the school first aid room only after gaining permission from a student's parent or guardian, in the presence of a family-designated adult. "This is about early detection so we can shut down the possibility of spread and keep our schools open," said FCPS Health Services Coordinator Debbie Boian.
Free meals are still available for anyone 18 and younger and for students who remain in remote learning or the Virtual Learning Academy. Children do not have to be present at pickup.
This is a monthly (virtual) program conducted in Spanish where families can chat and network as they strive to provide a healthy environment for their children. Email district mental health specialist Liz Epperson for details.
