Lancaster Families: On Monday, Oct 11, 2021. We began offering students with symptoms of COVID-19 the option to take home a BinaxNOW at-home testing kit. These kits were provided to us through the Virginia School Screening for Assurance (ViSSTA) Program offered through a collaboration of the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE). These tests are of no cost to the school system or its families. We opted into this program to assist families in an easy and affordable way to test their children in order to keep the number of absences to a minimum and still follow all safety protocols for symptomatic students during this pandemic. The tests were sent to us along with the letter linked below extending the expiration date on those tests that had expired by three months. As always, we are working to ensure that we are putting safety first during this pandemic. https://5il.co/10ell
