Weekly Covid-19 Testing Program Begins

All students under 18 must obtain parental/guardian consent to participate in this voluntary program. School testing will be implemented with the help of a state contractor.

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. Durango School District 9-R will expand the program to include additional campuses in the coming weeks.  Please watch for more information from your child’s school.
