Think You Know How To Count To 100?
Counting to 100 is a bundle of fun, especially when you're celebrating 100 days of school with Mrs. Horman at Cushing Elementary!

Mrs. Horman and her distance-learning kindergarteners were wide-eyed for 100 this week - you HAVE TO WATCH their lesson!

A new COVID testing site at Summit Clinical Labs in Delafield will be open starting Friday, Feb. 5. Community testing sites are coordinated through Waukesha County Public Health and the Waukesha County Office of Emergency Management and are open six days a week.

PCR Versus Antigen Testing
There has been some confusion about PCR vs. antigen testing for COVID-19. 
If a child stays home OR has been sent home with symptoms of COVID-19 and you wish to have them tested, KMSD requires a negative PCR test, which follows the CDC and Waukesha County guidelines for schools. This is for children with symptoms. 

Not every doctor’s office automatically does PCR testing. Please verify the type of testing before having it done. Documented proof of a negative PCR test is required before a child is allowed back in the classroom along with the child being symptom free for at least 24 hours without the use of medication.

Email your health staff or call the COVID-19 RN or health hotline if you have any questions.
