On-Site Student COVID-19 Testing

 

*THIS TESTING IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR CUHSD STUDENTS. STUDENTS PARTICIPATING IN ON-SITE COVID TESTING ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO ATTEND TESTING AT THEIR OWN SCHOOL SITE*

 

CUHSD has free and optional COVID-19 screenings for our students weekly at our School sites administered by district nurses, school staff, and CDPH representatives. We offer both rapid antigen and PCR testing: 
  • Rapid Antigen Testing: Students may participate in on-site rapid antigen testing (using BinaxNow rapid tests). Parents must complete the following one-time pre-registration (good for 6 months) to give consent for their student to test: Rapid antigen testing pre-registration via MyPrimaryHealth

  • PCR Testing: Students may also participate in on-site PCR testing (using Color PCR tests). Parents must register students for on-site Color PCR testing using the link provided by your school site. (If you have been COVID-positive in the last 90 days, it is recommended to use rapid antigen tests to confirm negative COVID status.)

COVID-19 Community Testing Resources

Below you will find important resources provided by local and federal agencies regarding free at-home test kits available to all CUHSD students and staff, with no insurance required. This information is provided as a resource and any questions on these resources should be directed to the appropriate agency.
 
County of Santa Clara Announces Free At-Home Tests
The County of Santa Clara is offering a limited number of free at-home COVID-19 antigen tests to those who live, work, or attend school in the county, with four distribution locations opening on an appointment basis starting this Saturday, January 22, 2022.
 
Those who live, work, or attend school in the county may sign up online at www.sccfreetest.org to obtain these at-home tests. Each person will receive four iHealth COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Tests. Pick-up sites are designed for drive-through operation; however, individuals can also arrive without a vehicle and get the tests so long as they have an appointment.

USPS Free At-Home Tests
The United States Postal Service is also offering four (4) free at-home tests per residential address. You can order these tests online at www.covidtests.gov. The U.S. Federal government expects these COVID-19 antigen test orders will ship in 7-12 days.
 

Using At-Home Tests to Return to School (after quarantine)
 
The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) announced that FDA-approved at-home COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test may be used to confirm an individual tests negative for the purpose of returning to school. Click here for a full list of Diagnostic Tests with FDA Emergency Use Authorization. This only applies to those whose symptoms have significantly improved or resolved and have tested negative for COVID-19 on day 5 or later.
 
In line with this guidance and in an effort to minimize the disruption of student learning, CUHSD will now allow families to use an at-home COVID-19 test to verify a student has tested negative on day 5 or later to return to school.

 

To report at-home test results, families will need to: 
  1. Take a photo of the negative test, including student’s name and date the at-home test was taken written on the test (or a picture of the student with the negative test result)
  2. Submit an Attestation Form and attach the photo above. Click on your school to access the relevant At-Home Test Result form for your student: Boynton | Branham | Del Mar | Leigh | Prospect | Westmont | Camden Post-Secondary
For families who are unable to secure an at-home COVID test to end their student's quarantine or isolation to return to school, parents/guardians or a family member who is not in quarantine may pick up a test at the front desk of the CUHSD District Office at 3235 Union Ave, San Jose, CA 95124. Please note: This is only for students who are in quarantine or attempting to return to school after quarantine.
