Spring Sport Test-To-Play

With spring sports just around the corner, we wanted to let you know that the Utah High School Activities Association and the Utah State Health Department plan to continue with the “test to play” model followed for winter sports.  Essentially, this means parents would need to give their consent to allow their student-athletes to participate in COVID-19 testing to play extra-curricular activities.  The test consists of a shallow, nasal swab, and would be conducted once over a two-week period.  Students who test positive would not be allowed to participate and would require isolating for 10 days.  Also, a student who tests positive is not required to participate in COVID-19 testing for 90 days after a positive test.  Students who test negatively would be allowed to participate in extra-curricular activities.  There is no charge for the COVID-19 test.  Also, as a district, we have the ability to provide COVID-19 tests to students, faculty, and staff.  If you have questions about the “test to play” program, please contact your building administrator.  If you have questions about COVID-19 testing, please contact the Kane District Office.
