COVID TEST KITS HAVE GONE HOME WITH YOUR CHILD THIS WEEK. 

 
COVID is a new thing in the world and the companies manufacturing testing supplies had to put an expiration date on it. They are now finding out that those test kits are still good.
Expiration Date Extension
Mar 28, 2022

On Mar 29, 2022, the FDA granted a three-month shelf-life extension for the iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test, which extended the shelf-life of all iHealth tests with expiration dates on or before 2022-09-29 (YYYY-MM-DD) from 6 months to 9 months. For example, if the expiration date printed on your box says 2022-05-21 (YYYY-MM-DD), the updated expiration date is 2022-08-21 (YYYY-MM-DD). We will continue to apply to FDA for shelf-life extensions every three months based on our stability studies, and the new shelf-lives for our tests will apply to tests already produced as well as future production.

Covid Test
 
Here is a website where you can check if you can use or if you should toss the kits.
 
Please be aware that students who have tested positive for COVID19 will need a doctor's note to play sports and participate in physical education classes.  Please plan accordingly.
