My student has 2 symptoms on the list. An at-home rapid test was negative. Can they go to school?
NO. Per DESE and DPS policy, all students with symptoms that warrant testing should have a diagnostic test (PCR or NAAT) done at a health office to return. We DO NOT accept home rapid tests for return to school. We also do not accept rapid antigen tests done at health offices for symptoms. It should be a PCR/NAAT test.
