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.
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.
