Free COVID-19 Take-Home Rapid Tests

MPUSD Community,

We hope you’re enjoying Spring Break. We want to provide a reminder about the availability of FREE COVID-19 take-home rapid tests at our MPUSD COVID-19 testing center offered through our partner Heal 360. 

Our testing center located at our Cabrillo Family Resource Center/Monterey Adult School at 1295 La Salle Avenue in Seaside, CA, has free take-home rapid tests available upon request and is open during Spring Break as follows: Tuesday - Friday 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

In an effort to continue to keep our campuses safe, we encourage you to pick up a free take-home rapid test kit and have your child test on Sunday, April 3rd prior to returning to school from Spring Break. If your child’s test is negative, please send them to school on Monday April 4th (you do not have to upload the test results to the district or your school site.) If your child tests positive, please keep them at home and call your child’s school to inform them and receive further instructions on isolation requirements.

If you are unable to make it to our testing center for your free take-home rapid test, the federal government is offering a second set of free tests and they are typically delivered within a day or two of ordering online.

Thank you for your continued support of MPUSD and our schools as we continue to navigate the challenges of coming out of the pandemic.

Sincerely,

PK Diffenbaugh
Superintendent
