Parent Info for Pooled Testing

June 11, 2021 

Dear Parents, Guardians and Caretakers,

The Maine Department of Education is encouraging school districts to adopt pooled testing for the 2021-2022 school year. 

I’ve listed some of the advantages of pooled testing for our students, staff and  families.

·         The  testing timeframe is weekly for our students, and takes no longer than 15 minutes;

·         Schools will be strongly encouraged to participate in the pooled testing program to protect those students for whom a COVID-19 vaccine has not yet been authorized.  This will minimize education disruption and exclusion from extracurricular activities resulting from having to quarantine when identified as a close contact.
