Consent Waiver For COVID-19 Testing

CLV Consent for Child’s COVID-19 Testing by Parent/Legal Guardian

CATTARAUGUS-LITTLE VALLEY CSD Consent for Child’s COVID-19 Testing by Parent/Legal Guardian

Parents / Guardians:

As you are likely aware, New York State is now identifying localities as micro-clusters zones when there are sharp increases in the COVID-19 infection rate. This designation by New York State comes with increased restrictions that impact school districts within an identified zone.

Should our community be designated a Yellow Zone, also known as a Precautionary Zone, the following activity restrictions will be put into place:

  • Schools must test 20% of in - person students, faculty and staff over the two-week period immediately following the announcement of a yellow zone designation. If the results of the testing reveal that the positivity rate among the 20% of those tested is lower than the yellow zone's current 7 - day positivity rate, testing at that school will no longer be required to continue. However, if the results of the testing over the first two weeks reveal that the positivity rate among in - person student, staff and faculty is higher than the Yellow Zone's current 7 - day positivity rate, the school will be required to continue to test 20% of the in - person population on a bi-weekly basis.

Furthermore, schools may remain open for in - person instruction if they adhere to required testing regulations. Students who are selected for testing must have a completed consent form on file to be tested. 

Thank you for your continued flexibility and cooperation as we continue to strive to provide in-person learning opportunities for students and a safe learning environment for our entire school community.

Sincerely,

Sharon Huff
Superintendent

1. Student's Full Name: *This question is required.

The CATTARAUGUS-LITTLE VALLEY CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT (the “District”) is seeking your consent to test your child for COVID-19 infection. If you consent, your child may receive a free rapid antigen test for the COVID-19 virus that will be administered by a health professional from the County Health Department.

A rapid COVID-19 test will be used, which will involve inserting a small swab, similar to a Q-Tip, into the front of the nose. You will be notified by the County Health Department, or the District if instructed by the County Health Department, if your child tests positive for COVID-19.

Any students who test positive will be sent home and must be kept at home until meeting Cattaraugus County Health Department criteria to return to school. Please contact your child’s doctor immediately to review the test results should your child test positive for COVID-19.

The law requires and/or allows some information about your child to be shared with Cattaraugus County and New York State Public Health Agencies. This includes notifying the Cattaraugus County Health Department about the COVID-19 results of each student who is tested, including the student’s name, date of birth, race, ethnicity, gender, address, phone number, and result of the COVID-19 test.

This question requires a valid date format of MM/DD/YYYY.
