September 21 Superintendent Letter to Parents

September 21, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I want to correct what I told you recently about COVID testing for your child by the school district.

In my recent communications to you, I indicated that your child’s name and personally identifiable information would remain within the school district. I am now informed that such is not the case. This differs from the information that I was originally given. It appears that your relationship between you as the parent and Affinity is outside the school's control. Should you elect to have us administer the test to your child and we send it off to Affinity, that is the end of the school’s involvement in the process.

Please remember that your participation in having your child tested by the school is strictly voluntary and is a personal decision.

We anticipate that we will begin to offer this service to parents beginning in about four weeks. Please understand that when the time comes that we can offer you this service, that you fully understand that should your child test positive, the results along with your child’s name and other information that you provide, will be sent to the health department. The health department will then address the results directly with you. I anticipate that the health department will also contact the school district for contact tracing should that be necessary.

I have always been open and honest with you and I wanted to correct what I told you earlier. Once again, when the time comes to offer this service that it is totally voluntary on your part. You may wish to visit the Affinity Empowering site for more information.

Thank you,

John Morgano Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
