COVID Testing Videos in BCSD

Hello BCSD Families,

This email is to inform you about the testing requirement for Batavia City Schools that will begin on January 4, 2021.


Batavia City Schools is now in the Yellow Zone, per Governor Cuomo. This requires us to test 20% of all students and staff on campus over a two-week period. If you haven't done so, then please don't forget to give consent for the Student Rapid COVID-19 testing for your child(ren) by next Tuesday, December 22, 2020. Failure to give consent will impact your child(ren)'s ability to attend school in-person and will keep your child in remote virtual learning until February 1, 2021. Failure to consent will impact your child’s ability to participate in extracurricular activities. If you do not wish to give consent, then no action is required.

Here is an updated link to give consent for test https://forms.gle/rgCYSjQVK7L4VV3M6  

You can also find the form on our BCSD website and our BSCD App.

If you have any questions please call your child’s school. Below are the links to videos on how the test will be administered at each school.
