Pooled COVID-19 Testing: Grades PreK - 6
The Brunswick School Department has partnered with Concentric by Ginkgo to implement Pooled COVID-19 Testing in grades PreK-6. This testing is optional and free. 

What is Pooled Testing?
Pooled Testing is a system in which groups of students--usually classes--self-swab their lower nasal cavities on a certain day of the week. All swabs from the group are combined into one specimen which is sent to a central testing facility. The schools are notified in 48 hours whether any specimen is positive. Individuals in the identified group are then re-tested. Those in the group who re-test negative do not have to quarantine.

We are hoping for high participation among staff and students to keep everyone from unnecessary quarantines when they are not sick. To do this, we need you to consent to your or your child’s test.

DIRECTIONS TO PROVIDE CONSENT:
1.Click the appropriate link: 
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.

2.Enter this access code for where your student attends or where you primarily work:
Kate Furbish Elementary School: KFS2021
Harriet Beecher Stowe Elementary School: HBS2021
Brunswick Junior High School: BJHS2021

3.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 the week of September 27.

Brunswick has been so warm and welcoming as I begin my first year here. My colleagues truly care about my well-being and will undoubtedly support me throughout my years to come in BSD.
