COVID-19 Testing Information

The District provides testing in partnership with Inspire Diagnostics. By registering your student(s) with Inspire Diagnostics, your student(s) can test for weekly screening or for exposures as necessary. When your student(s) participates in this weekly screening and/or exposure testing, he/she is eligible to remain in school during a "modified" quarantine.
To register your student(s), please click on INSPIRE DIAGNOSTICS REGISTRATION
If you prefer that your student(s) only participate in exposure testing, please contact Kelly McWaid at or your site principal.
If your student is currently registered and you would like to make adjustments or corrections to the registration, please contact Inspire Diagnostics at
