Dear David Cameron Families,
The Ministry of Education has begun shipping rapid antigen tests to school districts for distribution to students. Please note that schools are receiving these tests in a staggered fashion and that not all schools have yet received their allotment of test. Upon receipt of their tests, schools will begin distribution.
At David Cameron Elementary, we will be distributing in the following manner:
One box of five rapid antigen test kits will be provided to each student in our district for their family’s use. The kits will be distributed by our school and effective March 10th, will require parents or guardians of elementary students to pick them up at the school.
We are providing pick up times for parents to come to the school and pick up the tests. Pick up times will be Thursday March 10th and Friday March 11th, 2022 from 1:45PM to 3:00PM outside the main entrance and from 3:30PM to 5:30PM in the gymnasium. At 3:30PM, we will be asking you to make your way to the outside gym doors. You will enter one door, travel to the section by alphabet, receive your child’s tests and provide a signature to say you received the tests. You will then exit through another door. Please be patient while you wait in line to get the tests.
**If you cannot make the distribution times above and would like someone to pick up the test for your children, please send an email to Sue Tonnesen email@example.com letting her know who will be picking up the test kit for you.**
Last Thursday, Health Canada sent out an advisory about potential risks associated with the misuse or accidental ingestion or spillage of COVID-19 rapid antigen test kit solutions. The advisory was in response to an increase in reports to poison control centres. As a result of this advisory, we have revised our distribution plan for the kits for K-5 students.
Please store these kits, at room temperature, out of reach of children and pets. The BCCDC’s website has more information on the test kits and safety.
Students or their family members should use a rapid antigen test if they have any of the following symptoms of COVID-19:
For more information on how to use a rapid antigen test kit, see the BCCDC’s website or review the rapid antigen at-home test instructions. Feel free to print out the instructions or bookmark the link.
If you have any questions about the test kits, call 8-1-1 or reach out to public health.
