Free Weekly COVID-19 Testing

Dear Families:

Hilo High School is offering voluntary free weekly COVID-19 testing to help keep our students, staff and

cases quickly and identifying positive cases in people who do not show any symptoms. Testing will also help
us have regular, in-person learning while making everyone feel safer.

What is the COVID-19 testing program?
● Participating students will be tested for COVID-19 twice a week using an Antigen test.
● The test is performed at our school on Tuesday & Friday from 9:00 to 11:00 at N-102 (by the pool) .

● Parents that registered online will receive their student’s test results shortly thereafter. If parents are
unable to register online, a hard copy of the test results will be sent home with their student.
● The test is free. You do not need to pay for the test or have insurance to get the test.
● This program is optional, but we hope you will participate to help us stop the spread of COVID-19.

encourage your student to participate to help us reduce the spread of COVID-19.
