COVID-19 Testing Information

Salem Public Schools (SPS) faces an unprecedented moment in modern public education as it strives to serve students during the global COVID-19 pandemic. For information about how Covid-19 pooled testing in our schools, please visit this website.

Signing up and consent for student testing

Salem Public Schools is launching free student COVID-19 testing for ALL STUDENTS using pooled testing for all students. Our middle students at Collins and Saltonstall helped pilot the program today!. All students who attend school in-person (hybrid or five days) will be eligible for testing after February break. To learn more please view the full parent letter in English and in Spanish.

 

To register, click the link below for your child’s school. Please remember, you are completing the form for your child, not for you. You must complete the form by clicking “consent.” A dashboard that says “schedule a test” pops up - please ignore it! That function is not for schools. 

 

Please note, the links for consent are specific to each school in the district, and you must complete a profile for each student in your family at the correct schools.

Part-time Covid-19 testing employment available

In order to provide another layer or risk mitigation as we bring more students and staff into the buildings, Salem Public Schools is expanding its weekly surveillance test program to all students in grades K-12. To do so, the schools need to hire a few positions to help us achieve our goals. Please apply using the instructions in each link.
