Rapid Test Kit Distribution

In order to prepare for the reopening of in-school instruction on Monday, January 24, the Education Minister and NLESD have said that COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits will be made available to all students.

Please note: if it is confirmed by the Minister, Department of Health and the NLESD tomorrow (Wednesday, January 19), and we will be going back to in-person instruction on Monday, January 24, we will begin dispersing the rapid kits on Wednesday. Confirmation will be sent through a follow-up email.

In order to ensure everyone’s safety, we will have a drive-by pick-up at the Student Entrance at MDJH, alphabetically according to student last name. Families can arrange to have another parent/guardian pick up their child’s kit if they are unable to make their allotted time.

To keep traffic moving in a timely fashion, we will have two lines of traffic at the Student Entrance. One line will move through the Bus Lane and the second line will move through the student pick-up lane. Staff will be onsite to verify the student(s) names and distribute the rapid kits. See the schedule below.
