Westchester County Department of Health Covid-19 Testing for Schools

***Update: 12/16/2021: The WCDOH has extended the weekly school testing program into 2022. In addition, they have authorized a Gateway Test Event to be held on our January 7, 2022, school test date. Consequently, we have reopened registration and would encourage all interested students, faculty, and staff to sign up for testing as soon as possible as we will be able to test everyone during the Gateway event. Please follow the sign up steps below***

We have been working diligently to develop a COVID-19 plan that helps ensure a safe environment for our students, faculty and staff. As part of this plan, we have partnered with the Westchester County Department of Health, and Quadrant Biosciences to provide in-school testing for 20% of our school community on a weekly basis. 

The Test 

The Clarifi COVID-19 test is currently the most sensitive saliva test on the market and has been administered over 2 million times to college and K-12 students in New York State. You will also be pleased to know that the Clarifi COVID-19 test involves a very simple and painless saliva swab that the student can easily self-administer, as shown in this short video.

The Testing Procedure

Testing will take place weekly, on Fridays in the gym lobby, between the hours of 8:00am and 12:00pm until the end of the year.

Students will have the opportunity be tested at a time that is convenient to their schedule. Younger students will be accompanied to the testing by a GISNY staff member.

To participate in the testing program, you must sign a consent form for each participating child and then create student profiles at: https://app.clarifi-covid-19.com/. (Please Note: You can register multiple student profiles under one account). 

Once all samples have been collected for the day, they will send them off to Quadrant’s lab to be analyzed. Results will be returned within 24-48 hours, likely on Monday afternoon, and will be available for you to view by logging back into https://app.clarifi-covid-19.com/ .

We hope you will consider having your child participate in this important testing program at GISNY. The health and safety of our students, staff and community is our highest priority, and we greatly appreciate your support during these challenging times.

If you would like your child to participate in this initiative and have not yet signed the consent forms,  please do so now. Please return the completed consent forms by email to testing@gisny.org at any time.

Thank you very much for your cooperation and support!
