Joppa-Maple Grove USD #38 will be implementing the SHIELD Testing Program. This is a Voluntarily program. As a parent, you have the right not to fill out the consent form. Only students with a signed form on file with the nurse at Joppa-Maple Grove USD#38 will be part of this program.
In a nutshell, this will allow a student who has been identified as a "close contact" or "symptomatic" the option to be tested on day's 1,3,5, and 7, and as long as they continue to test negative, they can stay in school. So, by being part of this program, students can stay in person and continue learning.
If a student test positive on any day(1,3,5 or7), they will have to quarantine per the health department guidelines. The permission slip can be found on the school website under the Parent section.
