7th-8th Grade Pooled COVID-19 Testing
To support our efforts to maintain a healthy and safe learning environment, we are happy to announce that Brunswick School Department has partnered with Concentric by Ginkgo to expand Pooled COVID-19 Testing to grades 7-8. This testing is optional and free. The program may expand to other grade levels and/or co-curricular groups in the future.

Directions to provide consent:

If you are filling this out for multiple students, you will need to complete a 
separate consent for each student. 
 
Staff consent requires creating a free account with Concentric by Ginkgo.

Follow the prompted steps and submit at the end.

Only students and staff with completed consent forms are able to participate in testing. If you do not want yourself or your family to participate, do not fill out a form. We hope to begin testing on November 9.
