Fall is beautiful in Seattle with vibrant red and orange leaves, but we are nearing the end of that season and living up to our “rainy city” name now haha. That means the first semester of this school year is almost over too, and what a year it’s been already! We’re balancing students who are really excited to return with also the unique ups and downs of all reintegrating back after years of being on screens.
While we were partially back to in-person learning last spring, we’re almost fully back in-person now, so safety has been on the forefront of everything. The safety measures of masking, socially distancing, and having high vaccination rates make me feel more at ease so far, and COVID-19 testing will soon be added as a tool. That’s why I’ve partnered with the Washington State Department of Health to share more about on-site testing in schools.

Parents can voluntarily opt their students into free, on-site COVID-19 testing at school. Thankfully, kids’ vaccines are now available, and while vaccination rates are still increasing in K-12 schools, testing can protect kids, help stop the spread more quickly, allow students to participate in sports and extracurriculars, and keep schools open. I know testing has given me more peace of mind, and that’s the hope it can provide for staff, families, and students too. Learn more about testing in schools here.
Hope you’re taking care and staying healthy!
