‘Test to Stay’ Events Coming Soon to Eight CSD Schools

Canyons District is implementing Test to Stay protocols at schools that have met the threshold under state law.  

The first school-based COVID-19 testing event will be held at Alta High School, on Thursday, Jan. 13 from 7:45 to 11 a.m. 

Pending the availability of Salt Lake County Health Department staff and testing kits, testing events are also being booked through the county at the following schools: Brighton, Corner Canyon, Hillcrest, and Jordan high schools, and Draper Park, Eastmont, and Indian Hills middle schools.  

Case counts at other CSD schools are being closely monitored.  

Seeing a steady rise in COVID-19 case counts, these school communities have been placed on notice with messages calling for strict adherence to health and safety measures. In the coming days, families will be notified of the need to register for the upcoming Test to Stay events, and sent a secure registration link. Parents must consent to the testing of their children. 

Per state law, schools that reach certain thresholds of COVID-19 cases must conduct Test to Stay events to identify those students who may have coronavirus but are not showing symptoms so they can safely isolate at home, thereby reducing the risk of school-based exposures and preserving in-person learning.

Under the Test to Stay guidelines, students who test negative are able to remain in school. Those who test positive are directed to isolate for five days and learn remotely as long as they are not too sick to engage in classes. They are also asked to wear a face mask for an additional five days when they return to school.

Those who choose not to be tested are asked to learn remotely for five days with a recommendation to mask up for an additional five days. 

If a student has tested positive for COVID-19 within 48 hours of a school commencing testing, the student does not need to be tested. Students who have recovered from the virus and would like to opt out of testing will need to bring documentation showing the date they received a positive COVID-19 result.

After a school commences Test to Stay testing, the school’s COVID-19 case counts will reset to zero

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
