Letter to the Community

Dear Parents, Caregivers, and Guardians,

We commit to taking the steps necessary to help us have a safe return to school. As part of steps to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and keep our school open for in-person learning, we will offer a free COVID-19 testing program for students and staff at West Oso ISD. This program uses GenBody COVID-19 Ag Rapid Tests. These tests are optional, but we encourage all students and staff who are demonstrating symptoms of COVID-19, and those identified as asymptomatic or have been in close contact with a person that has tested positive for COVID-19 to participate for the health and safety of the district.

Through this program, we will be able to identify COVID-19 cases quickly and early, which can help us stop an outbreak before it happens. These tests are being offered in addition to existing safety protocols such as mask-wearing, social distancing, and frequent disinfection of surfaces. This will help us keep students in the classroom and able to take part in the school activities they love.

With guidance from the Texas Department of Emergency Management (TDEM), Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Texas Education Agency (TEA), and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DHSH) we will be joining other school districts throughout the state that offer this program.

How is the testing done? The COVID-19 testing is free, quick, and easy. We will only test with a parent/guardian present (for students under age 18). We require parent/legal guardian consent for students under the age of 18. We administer tests with a nasal swab (to the shallow front of the nostrils only).

  • Parent/staff will call West Oso ISD nursing staff to schedule an appointment. We will only perform testing from 9:0 to 10:00 a.m. daily in a designated site (outside) in the campus's parking lot.
  • Parent/staff drive into designated sites and remain in their car.
  • Parent/staff calls the school nurse to let them know that they are outside in the designated area.
  • Parent/staff must show a valid ID and sign the consent form given before we can perform the test.
  • Parent/staff will need to wait 15 minutes for their results.
  • Parent/staff will need to provide a valid email address or cell phone to obtain results.

We are extremely grateful to our committed families and staff who continue to show great flexibility and resilience as we work together to contain the spread of this virus. If you have questions regarding the COVID-19 testing program, please reach out to your campus school nurse.

While we realize precautions will be taken for the safety of students, please understand that neither the test administrator nor the West Oso ISD nor any of its trustees, officers, employees, or organization sponsors is liable for any accident or injuries that may occur to your child or yourself (if student age 18 or older), as a result of agreeing to the test.
