El Monte Union Will Provide Over 500 At-Home COVID-19 Testing Kits
The health and safety of EMUHSD students is our District’s number one priority. Starting February 3, EMUHSD will distribute over 500 at-home COVID-19 testing kits thanks to a partnership with Everlywell Inc. These testing kits are physician-approved lab tests that can be conducted from the comfort of your home.
Members of the school community including staff, students and parents who are interested in a testing kit should complete the District’s questionnaire form to determine eligibility. The forms links have been provided below, in your language of choice. Please note that a student request requires a completed parent consent form that will be provided upon the submission of the District’s questionnaire. All kits include step-by-step instructions and, once completed, tests are mailed to the lab and results are available to view online within 24-48 hours of arrival.
