Free COVID-19 Testing


FREE COVID-19 Testing for LSCS Students & Staff


 

Lake Station Community Schools takes the health and safety of our students and their families very seriously. As such, in addition to our current mitigation strategies already in place, we are now helping families by providing free and quick access to COVID-19 testing as a critical service the Lake Station Community Schools Health Services team can offer.  LSCS Health Services has the capability to test LSCS students and staff for COVID-19 for free using the COVID-19 AG Card rapid test. 

 

If you would like for your child to have the ability to be tested for COVID-19 at Lake Station Community Schools during the 2021-2022 school year, then you will need to complete the “Covid-19 Testing Permission” form online in Skyward.   The Lake Station Community Schools Health Services team cannot administer the COVID-19 test for students without this permission from parents/guardians.
