• LCSD Test to Stay Parent Consent

    If you consent to TTS for your child, your child will be tested a minimum of two times during the five-day quarantine period following exposure, unless recognition of the exposure is delayed or weekends or school breaks intervene. One of the tests must occur on day five. If day five falls on a weekend or school holiday, the test should be performed the next school day.
