 COVID Reminders


RCSD recently partnered with BayPLS to increase on-site COVID-19 testing.  Students at Henry Ford will be tested every Monday and Thursday.

Testing is non-random and being implemented as a districtwide preventative measure. You will only be notified about the test in advance if your child is considered a close contact. Non-random testing is an additive layer of protection against the spread of the virus.


Students must be registered in Primary Health to be tested. Primary Health Registration Link here


In addition, there is weekly FREE COVID testing for RCSD students at Hoover and Kennedy

Thursdays 1:30pm -- 4:30pm.  See HERE for details


Don't forget to complete your Daily Wellness Survey before 7:30am every morning!

You can also complete a paper form, available onsite.  Or print a copy HERE
