November 8, 2021 Dear Slate Valley Families, We have seen an uptick in COVID cases over the weekend impacting our students, staff and families in Slate Valley. Our schools have either started Test to Stay or are planning to this week. For those schools that started it this morning it went very well. If you plan to have your child participate in this program if they are a close contact PLEASE REGISTER your child ASAP as it makes it much easier for us if they are already in the system. This is a large undertaking and we are short on staff so your cooperation is greatly appreciated. We want our students to be safe and participate in in-person learning. For more information on TTS please read the following: https://5il.co/11jmn Best, Brooke Olsen-Farrell Superintendent

November 2, 2021 Dear Slate Valley Families, We are getting ready to begin the antigen Test to Stay (TTS) program. Your child's school will notify you when they are ready to begin which will be at the earliest November 8th but definitely by November 15th. Please note that we can only staff this if we have manageable numbers of quarantined students. If we have large numbers then this program will be difficult to staff. That being said, we will continue to do our very best. The TTS program is activated when a student or student(s) are identified as a close contact to a confirmed case of COVID-19 inside school. The intention of the TTS program is to allow students that would otherwise be required to quarantine to remain in school. A detailed description of this program can be found on the Agency of Education Test to Stay website (https://bit.ly/3nPFnHK) and you can also take a look at how the program will work in this flowchart (https://bit.ly/3GGn14N). Please read the complete letter from Superintendent Olsen-Farrell for important information on the Test to Stay Program: https://5il.co/11cwl
