UPDATE – Rapid Test Kit Distribution 

January 19, 2022 – Time Sensitive

Good Morning, 

In order to prepare for the possible reopening of in-school instruction on Monday, January 24, the Education Minister and the NLESD have said that COVID-19 Rapid Test Kits will be made available to all students. As per this advisory, we will begin dispersing the rapid kits today

In order to ensure everyone’s safety, we will have a drive-through 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. Students in Grades 7-12 can also pick up their own kit during the allotted time.

Kits cannot be left in the cold because  they are temperature sensitive and cannot be stored below 15 degrees Celsius. 

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.  Please wear a mask and stay in your car. Staff will be onsite to verify the student(s) names and distribute the rapid kits.
