Report COVID-19 Test Results & Absences

Should your child(ren) test positive, keep them home from school and contact your doctor and your school right away. This flyer below from the state explains how to share your child’s at-home COVID-19 test results with the local health department.

If the results of your child’s at-home test are unclear, please retest at CVESD’s Education Services and Support Center (hours available online at or at a local testing site. If you are unable to get a COVID-19 test from your healthcare provider, testing is available at several locations across the county.

If your child(ren) has/have symptoms (like cough and/or fever) or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please keep them home and use your test to see if they have COVID-19. In addition, in this case please call us before they return to school – even if the test is negative. More testing may be needed as the variants often cause people to test negative at the early onset of their infection.

Please use this email for reporting absences and COVID-19 test results:  Students can get attendance credit by completing an independent study. Please ask your teacher or office staff for a list of work to complete.
