COVID-19 testing for K-12 schools in Washington State
Keeping schools open & safe for students
COVID-19 testing for K-12 schools is one of our best defenses against outbreaks and school closures. We offer free, customized testing solutions for public, private, and tribal schools in Washington State to maximize in-person learning and minimize interruptions caused by COVID-19.
Using state-of-the-art testing
Our testing vendors are vetted by the Washington State Department of Health and represent the best of COVID-19 testing technologies. From a selection of rapid antigen tests to oral and nasal PCR testing, we offer schools a range of state-of-the-art testing technologies. You can mix and match types of tests to best fit your needs.
Supporting those who support the community
School staff have worked tirelessly to protect students and the school community throughout the pandemic. We lighten this load by making school-based testing easy to implement and sustain. Our L2R Program Managers work closely with you to build testing strategies, manage inventories, train testing staff, and more.
Making time for what matters
Our shared goal is maximizing student and staff time for learning, athletics, band, theater, debate club, social events, and other extracurricular activities. The pandemic has taught us that interruptions to school impact the entire community and put unnecessary stress on families. It is essential that families understand and support the testing programs at their kid’s school, and we provide schools with the communications resources they need to engage caretakers.
Informing the front line
School testing staff are the first defense against the spread of COVID-19 in schools. They need clear and timely information about school guidance, testing protocols, and trends in the news. Our newsletter breaks down the latest on COVID-19 testing, vaccines, statewide guidance, and more for school staff at the district and building level.
Moving past the pandemic
Getting back to normal doesn’t mean that the virus is gone for good. A school-based testing program that can quickly curb outbreaks before they start is essential to moving forward with confidence. Make L2R a part of your pandemic defense strategy.
