Covid-19 Pooled Testing (PK-6)

What is it? 

Pooled testing is a COVID-19 prevention tool that combines samples from a group of people into one laboratory test. If a pool of people tests positive, each person in the pool is then tested individually to find out who within the pool is positive. Pooled testing helps us find COVID-19 cases early, before they have a chance to spread. 

Students in a classroom will have a COVID-19 test once a week. Parents must sign a consent form (please see below) in order for their child to participate. All of the testing is voluntary and free. Pooled testing in South Portland is currently open to PreK to 6th grade students only.

How do I sign up?

Parents and staff members must fill out an electronic consent form with the proper school access code (listed below):
