WS PTO Update

Remembering Bob Lager
Thank you to the many of you who have already dropped off letters, drawings and gestures of kindness in support of Bob Lager’s memory. Please keep them coming! A first round of these wonderful items have been delivered to Bob’s family and they are overcome with the outpouring of affection from our Woodland school community. THANK YOU for your kindness.
We are also working on a permanent way to commemorate Bob and should have more details in the coming months.
New Covid-19 Testing Program
Weston’s two new COVID-19 testing programs are now open for families to register and schedule appointments for students. Information about testing is available here and registration instructions are available for both programs below:

1) Weekly, pre-scheduled asymptomatic PCR testing for students and staff (who have no known symptoms of COVID-19). Please follow the registration instructions for Project Beacon (and if you have multiple students to schedule weekly tests for, you should review the additional instructions).

2) Testing of symptomatic individuals using antigen testing for students and staff who develop symptoms of COVID-19 while in school. Please give consent/register for BinaxNOW rapid tests via this link: WS.

Please register twice, once for each type of testing. Thank you for helping to keep our community safe!
