Dear Parents and Guardians, I am excited to share that Lewis-Arriola Elementary is enrolled in Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s free, voluntary, and statewide COVID-19 school testing program for the 2021-22 school year. This is a critical step to keeping our students and teachers healthy and allowing us to continue in-person learning. The safety of our students and educators is our top priority. Testing will start the first week of November. All students under 18 must obtain parental/guardian consent to participate in this voluntary program. Through Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity (ELC) Reopening Schools award funds, students are eligible to receive an incentive, regardless of their current vaccination status. A participating student will receive $25 for the first COVID-19 test administered to them through this program. A student can then receive $10 for every subsequent test that is administered each week (at a maximum of one incentive allowed per week). Parents may choose to opt out of the individual student incentives.

The COVID-19 testing program is available to all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status or presence of symptoms. School testing will be implemented with the help of a state contractor.
