COVID-19 2020-21 Documents
This table provides a snapshot of COVID-19 data at each school for the 2021-22 school year.
Note: We have many more students and staff in quarantine each day while they await results of testing for COVID-like symptoms (most have been negative) or because of travel to non-exempted states. We are only reporting here those that have been quarantined by the CDC because of a confirmed or probable case, or close contact with a confirmed or probable case.
How to Register for Pooled COVID-19 Testing
To support our efforts to maintain a healthy and safe learning environment, we are happy to announce that Brunswick School Department has partnered with Concentric by Ginkgo to provide Pooled COVID-19 Testing. This testing is optional and free.
Pooled Testing is a system in which groups of students self-swab their lower nasal cavities on a certain day of the week. All swabs from the group are combined into one specimen which is sent to a central testing facility. The schools are notified in 48 hours whether any specimen is positive. Individuals in the identified group are then re-tested. Those in the group who re-test negative do not have to quarantine from school regardless of whether they are vaccinated.
We are hoping for high participation among staff and students to accurately monitor the prevalence of COVID-19 in the school and to keep everyone from unnecessary quarantines when they are not sick. To do this, we need you to consent to your or your child’s test. Giving consent is quick and easy. Simply follow the directions below to do so electronically. This process should take no more than 5 minutes to complete using a computer or a smartphone.
