COVID test kits for students

Hello, Lydiksen families -

The Lydiksen school office is now open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. You may call the office at 925-426-4420 or come into the office if you have questions.

Lydiksen will be distributing at-home COVID test kits to students and staff members in the school office this week. One test kit is available for each Lydiksen student; simply come into the office to get a kit for your child from the table by the office door. These test kits have been provided by the CDC to help schools have a healthy, safe start to the new school year.

Testing is strongly recommended (though not required) before school starts to minimize the transmission of COVID as we begin the school year. Test results (both positive and negative) should be uploaded to Primary.Health. Positive test results should also be reported by calling Lydiksen’s attendance line at 925-426-4420. One test should be used on Tuesday, Aug. 9 prior to students and staff returning to school. You may save the second test to use at a later date (such as after a known exposure or if your student has symptoms).

If your student has not registered with Primary.Health previously, you must register your student by using this link in order to upload test results. If your student is already registered as a result of prior PUSD testing, there is no need to register again.

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping students and staff healthy as we start the 2022-23 school year!
