Important Parent Choice "Test to Stay" Message from Superintendent Stover

Please watch this important video message from our Superintendent, Dr. Matt Stover, about the Parent Choice "Test-to-Stay" Covid-19 Testing Program...


Dear Catawba County Schools families,

We are excited to announce the launch of Catawba County Schools' participation in the parent choice ABC Science Collaborative/Duke University Study, “Test to Stay in School: COVID-19 Testing Following Exposure in K-12 School Communities." 

Participation in this parent choice research program will enable students and staff to remain in school after having close contact with a positive COVID-19 case, provided they are tested for COVID-19 at pre-specified intervals, have no symptoms, continue proper masking at school, and tests remain negative. 

Parental consent to participate is mandatory. If the parent chooses for the student to not participate in the study, he/she will proceed with the normal quarantine.
