FRCS Secures Free COVID Tests Kits Ahead of Thanksgiving Break

Dear FRCS Families, 
 
Earlier this month we informed you that DESE would be providing free at home COVID test kits.
 
The tests arrived at FRCS this week and were sent home with students today. If your child was absent today, there will be extra test kits available in front offices and nurses offices.
 
Each FRCS student received two kits today. One to use before returning to campus from Thanksgiving break, and the other to use before returning from December vacation. While health officials encourage testing following large gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is not required that FRCS students take a test to return to campus after break.  
 
It’s important to note that the expiration dates for the kits distributed at FRCS have been extended. The use by date is 01-22-2024.  Please refer to the expiration date on the contents inside the test kit box.  
  
As a reminder, please keep your child home if they are sick! If your child tests positive for COVID at any time please contact the building nurse.
 
Sincerely, 
 
Cathy Alix, RN
Nurse Leader
