COVID-19 Testing

Did you look in your child's book bag to find the COVID-19 Attestation Form?  Did you find the COVID-19 Testing consent form?  Please sign BOTH and return Wednesday, September 8, 2021.  
As of today, September 7th CPS has not confirmed a Pullman COVID-19 testing schedule; therefore, if you  have traveled over the holidays, your child can not return to school without a NEGATIVE COVID-19 Test.  If your child is not fully vaccinated and within the past 14 days had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 they must be tested.   LIST OF PEDIATRIC COVID-19 TESTING SITES
  • My child is not fully vaccinated and within the past 14 days had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. (Outside of the classroom setting, the CDC defines “close contact” as “someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.”)
  • My child is not fully vaccinated, within the last 10 days my child traveled to a state or territory identified as ORANGE or RED in the City of Chicago Travel Advisory, and my child cannot produce a negative COVID-19 test or qualify for an exception as listed in the Advisory. (Chicago’s Travel Advisory can be found here:
  • My child is not fully vaccinated, and my child traveled internationally within the last 10 days (or 7 days with a negative COVID-19 test upon return).

Collective Responsibility

As  our students return to in-person learning five days a week, everyone must do their part to keep our community safe. This means that everyone in the CPS family, including students, parents/guardians, teachers and staff must practice the same safety measures that our students are using in-person at school. Therefore, in order to keep our school communities safe, you agree to the following: 

  • Adhere to social distancing, wearing cloth face coverings or masks, and practicing good hand hygiene at school or home and in your social pods and community;
  • Adhere to quarantining requirements for the appropriate number of days depending on the travel location; 
  • Observe and teach the same healthy hygiene habits we use at school at home: 20-second hand washing, appropriate use of face coverings, catching coughs and sneezes in a tissue or your elbow;
  • Make the decision to stay home if you are sick or awaiting COVID-19 test results; and 
  • Be an example for your children and neighbors in modeling safe, responsible behaviors and compassion for others.
