COVID-19 Testing Plan: School Year 2022-23

This school year, CPS will focus its COVID testing plan on symptomatic individuals and targeted at-home testing after school breaks. Our four-part plan includes

  1. Back-to-School Testing: All students and staff will receive a package in the mail with a test kit to use at home before returning to school.
  2. At-Home Symptomatic Testing: All students and staff will receive test supplies to use at home when they feel COVID-19 like symptoms. Supplies will be distributed at school in September and January.
  3. At-Home Targeted Post-Break Testing: All students and staff will receive test supplies to use on the morning before returning to school after school breaks. Supplies will be distributed at school the week before Thanksgiving, Winter, February, and April break.
  4. At-School Symptomatic Testing: All schools will have a supply of rapid antigen tests to use for students who develop symptoms during the school day. Parents/guardians must provide consent for students under age 18+ to participate in symptomatic testing. Sign consent form for symptomatic testing in the CPS Family Portal.

What do if you test positive
If you are positive, stay home for 5 days. Contact your school to report your absence.
