Our priorities this school year are keeping our students safe and learning in person. We are excited to announce the availability of free, rapid 15 minute COVID-19 tests for students which helps support our priorities of keeping our students safe and learning in person.
Free COVID-19 Testing Kits for Mahtomedi Students
The Minnesota Department of Health has provided our school district with free COVID-19 tests for students. The tests are BinaxNOW COVID-19 Antigen Self Test and are a rapid, 15-minute test. Please note that students will not be tested at school and kits will not be sent home without parental consent.
Rapid tests are available for free for all K-12 and Passages students at Mahtomedi Public Schools. To request a free test kit, please contact your child’s school nurse (a contact list is below).
Free COVID-19 Rapid Test Use
As a reminder, our COVID-19 dashboard (www.mahtomedi.k12.mn.us/dashboard) is on our school year website. The dashboard includes positive cases by school building as well as student vaccination rates. This information is updated weekly at the end of the day on Fridays.
