AUSD to Provide Rapid Antigen Tests to All Students and Staff
Posted 12/11/21

In a continued effort to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, AUSD will be distributing two rapid, at-home, antigen tests to all AUSD students and staff before the Winter Break.

The goal of the program is to identify and respond to positive cases among students and staff as quickly as possible, so as to stop the spread of the virus in our community after winter break.


The tests take about one minute to complete and 15 minutes to process. We are asking that all students take the tests on January 2 (the day before they return to school) and again on January 6.

If your student tests positive, do not send them to school on January 3. Instead:

  • Contact your health provider 
  • Enter your student’s positive result on the COVID-19 Symptom Tracker on your school’s home page.

Students will bring the tests home from their schools this week. Please watch for more details from AUSD and your principals.

We thank you for working with us to keep our community safe. You can find full directions for taking the tests on our Instructions for the At-Home Rapid Antigen Test page.
