How long do students participate in Test to Stay:

Quarantine students may test to stay on quarantine days 1 - 7 and with a negative test and asymptomatic, may attend the regular school day.  A student has to test every school day during the first 7 days to attend.  If a student misses a testing day, they will be still considered quarantined and will remain at home.  They may test the following day and stay at school with the negative test and asymptomatic.  

 

Can students do extracurricular activities:

The Test to Stay program does not eliminate quarantine guidance for the student.  When not at school, the exposed student must stay home and refrain from all extracurricular activities, including sports and other activities and refrain from interacting within the community.  Test to Stay is not Test to Play.
