Highline Offers Free COVID-19 Testing
One way to keep our schools safe and open is to offer free COVID-19 tests to students, staff and household members. To make it easier and faster to get a COVID test, we are launching a new consent form that can be used for the entire school year.
Highline offers two types of COVID-19 testing—diagnostic and screening testing. All testing is voluntary. The one-time, universal consent form can be used for both diagnostic and screening testing.
We encourage all families and staff to complete the form now, so if and when you decide to get a test, you are ready.
The online consent form is available in both English and Spanish.
If you would like to read the consent form in a different language, please use these links:

We offer free testing to all students, staff and families who have been exposed to someone who tested positive to COVID-19 or is experiencing symptoms. See a list of testing locations and times on our testing webpage.
Screening testing is used to detect COVID-19 before symptoms occur. We are currently offering screening testing to some athletes, overnight Camp Waskowitz campers, and in incidents when higher risk exposures may have occurred. Later this fall, we will offer screening testing at all schools at least once a month.
