Test to Stay Program

Free COVID testing for asymptomatic students who are in “close contact” with someone who does NOT live in the same household will begin Monday, 10-18-21 at 7:30 a.m. at OCMS & OCHS. Testing at K-3 & 4-6 will begin 10-25-21. This is an optional alternative to the automatic mandatory 7- or 10-day home quarantine from a COVID exposure.

If your child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and you want to take part in this service, you will need to:

1. Call the school or send an email to [email protected] to let us know that you want your child to be tested as an alternative to the automatic home quarantine 2. Register your child for the program using the following link https://www.ethosbacktoschool.com/

Parents of students at any of the 4 OCS sites are encouraged to enroll their child now so this will already be on file to speed up the registration process on testing day. This program is VOLUNTARY, and you may opt your children out of this program at any time, even if you register now.

When you initially enroll your child in the program per the attached instructions, you will need to select “Diocese of Owensboro” as their School District (top right corner of the screen). Then you will be able to choose your child’s designated OCS site under the School Name drop-down box.

Test results will be available in 15 min. If your child wants to eat breakfast at school, we encourage you to get your child to school early for testing.
