Free Covid Testing Available for MPUSD Students

Posted on August 18th, 2021 by lighthouseave

Monterey Peninsula Unified School District's Superintendent PK Diifenbaugh has issued an important message to all MPUSD families outlining additional steps the district is taking to protect students from Covid-19. Please read the full message here.

Of Note: Free Covid Testing

COVID-19 Home Test Kits: MPUSD is purchasing ‘home test kits' for families of students on modified quarantine so that required COVID testing can be performed at home free of charge, and to ensure students can remain at school provided that students are asymptomatic and test negative twice within a 10-day period.

Centralized COVID-19 Testing: Beginning in early September, MPUSD will be partnering with Lightspeed Testing to ensure families/students have access to free testing twice a week at a centralized location. Everyone can find a variety of current weekly testing locations here.
