Dear West Philadelphia High School parents or guardians:
COVID-19 Testing is one of the layers of mitigation that will maximize the safety of our students and staff during the 2021-2022 school year. Because testing will need to be performed regardless of a parent or guardian’s availability at the time a test will be administered, consent for testing is required for all students. The testing will be provided for students at no cost to students or their family. The parent/guardian listed on this consent will be notified on the day that their student was tested. All results will be communicated to the student’s parent/guardian. Students participating in Athletics and/or Performing Arts will be required to test 2 times weekly and/or before a competition or performance. Consents are sent directly to the School Nurse. Please complete the following consent at this link: https://tinyurl.com/westcovidconsent
