COVID-19 Testing for WMS Students
Updated: April 20, 2022
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, WMS has instituted policies and procedures based on the research and recommendations put forth by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), Delaware Depart of Education Office of Child Care Licensing (OCCL) and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Policy Lab.
As a licensed facility through the Delaware OCCL, we are required to adhere to the strictest standards. The school nurse and other administrators attend meetings each week, during which epidemiologists and government officials share the latest information and research related to the COVID-19 pandemic and offer guidance and recommendations to schools.
Current Testing Requirements
Based on this information, weekly COVID-19 testing is no longer mandatory at WMS as of March 2, 2022. However, we continue to strongly encourage regular COVID-19 testing for all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status. Through the remainder of the 2021-22 school year, we will continue to provide suggested due dates and ask that families submit results to firstname.lastname@example.org.
