  • District steps up its free in-school Covid testing program

    LCPS has expanded its corps of school nurses, added the highly accurate PCR test and teamed up with a private firm to interpret test results. The changes are expected to get students back to school sooner, make testing more convenient, and provide some relief for school nurses for whom the work of Covid testing, contact tracing and notification has come to overshadow their myriad other responsibilities.
