Diboll ISD is committed to doing all we can to keep staff and students healthy and safe. With this goal in mind, we are pleased to share that we will be taking part in a statewide program offering rapid tests for use in schools. We will be implementing a VOLUNTARY phased-in approach to BinaxNOW rapid COVID-19 testing. Rapid antigen based testing will potentially give Diboll ISD the ability to quickly identify and isolate positive individuals before they can transmit the virus to others. In turn, this will help reduce the amount of absences for individuals waiting on test results and help to fast track treatment and quarantine for positive individuals and their close contacts. This program will allow Diboll ISD to test staff and students with parent permission and reduce the risk to our school community.
Student testing requires completed parent permission forms before a symptomatic student can be tested. Permission forms can be found on Skyward after logging into your account. Paper permission forms will also be available.
