Stay COVID-19 Safe!

DCP Community: Let's keep our students and staff safe and in school!

Below are some tips and resources so that we can each do our part to keep our community safe and continue in-person learning. 

Face masks must be worn at all times while on campus and should cover nose and mouth.

If your child is sick or has ANY cold or flu like, KEEP THEM HOME. 

If you are able, get vaccinated!

Free COVID-19 Testing Available at DCP School Sites 

DCP is partnering with Inspire Diagnostics to offer all students and staff convenient COVID-19 testing with no out of pocket cost. Testing is offered on campus each week. In order to be tested, students must pre-register. Details in the video below and links for registering for each school site. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should my child be tested? 

Widespread testing provides a more accurate picture of how many cases exist in our community, or in our school, and helps us understand how and where the virus is spreading. Testing helps identify people without symptoms who have COVID-19 and could be spreading it.

What if I don't want my child to be tested? 

If your student is asked to test, you have the right to say no, but please remember if your student was identified as close contact in a positive exposure case and that student is not tested, they will have to go home and quarantine. We are doing this for the safety of your student, your family, and our staff and teachers who also have families they go home to. 

How much does it cost to get tested?

There is no cost to you for your student to get tested

Do I have to register every time they get tested? 

No. You only have to register your student once and they will use that same code for any future testing on campus. 

Can family members also get tested at a DCP campus? 

At this time we are only testing DCP students and staff. You may contact your healthcare provider, call the Valley Connection Line at 1-888-334-1000 or visit the County website for other testing sites near you.
