Free Covid-19 Test Kits Available for Students

November 10, 2022

Dear Gananda Families,

As we have in the past, we have received COVID-19 Test Kits from New York State to distribute prior to our upcoming Thanksgiving Break. We will send two free COVID-19 test kits home with all students in grades Pre-K through 12 on Thursday, November 17, 2022.  

There is no requirement for you to use them; we are providing them as an added layer of protection for those that want them. In the event your student is absent on Thursday, November 17, we will distribute their test kits on Friday, November 18. Two test kits will be distributed per student in grades Pre-K through 12. Please note: some of the test kits may have an expiration date that has passed or is close to expiring. The New York State Department of Health has assured us that those test kits are still valid until December 30, 2022.

We do have an overstock of test kits, so if families would like to request more than two kits, please complete this form. If you DO NOT want your child to receive the test kits, please fill out this form. Forms need to be completed by Tuesday, November 15, 2022 if you are requesting more than two kits, or you do not want your kits.


We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving break.

Thank you,

Shawn Van Scoy, Ed.D

Superintendent, Gananda Schools
