Episode 14: Could Rapid COVID Testing be the Key to Keeping Schools Open?

If you live in Utah and are the parent of a high school student, chances are you’ve heard of Test to Play, the bi-monthly rapid COVID testing that athletes and performing arts groups undergo so they can safely continue to practice, perform, and compete. The test-to-play program has helped preserve the spirit-building activities that make high school so memorable. Now, those same testing tools are being put to use to keep students in the classroom through a new Utah Department of Health program called Test to Stay. What exactly is Test to Stay and why did a Utah Legislative Audit recently recommend it as a “primary COVID mitigation strategy” for schools? In this episode, we hear from Canyons Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins and Jordan High Principal Wendy Dau who help explain how Test to Stay, along with other recent changes in protocols, may put an end to entire schools having to go online.

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!
