The North Adams Public Schools will once again be participating in a COVID Surveillance testing program this year. This program assists in identifying COVID-19 asymptomatic students and helps to keep our students and staff members safe. This year the testing program will include pooled and rapid results testing for the "test and stay" no-quarantine program. For your student to participate, there must be a signed consent form for the current school year on file. A new form must be submitted even if your child participated last year. Please go to the district website to access the electronic or the printable consent form at https://www.napsk12.org/page/covid19surveillancetesting.
