Pierre School District COVID-19 Data

At-Home COVID-19 Test Kits

The Pierre School District has worked with the South Dakota Department of Health and South Dakota Department of Education to secure and distribute the Quidel QuickVue OTC Covid-19 test kits for students and staff of the Pierre School District, as stated in our Back to School Plan. Please review the information in the link below and complete the form if you desire to receive a test kit. Once you have completed the online form for your student we will send a test kit home with your child. Staff can pick up test kits at their school when available. If test kits are not immediately available for students, we will send a kit home as soon as possible. You can receive additional test kits by submitting the form again, pending availability. Please contact your medical provider if your child tests positive and keep them home from school. Thank you for helping us make this a great start to the school year! Let’s make it a great year for all staff and students of the Pierre School District!
