Perham High School will be hosting a COVID-19 Pfizer Vaccination Clinic on April 29 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the breakout area by the stairwell near the first floor lockers. The event is for students 16 and over with consent from parents/guardians.
Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your student. We all want to keep students in the classroom, participating in activities and sports and to be able to enjoy events such as prom and graduation. The best way to accomplish that is to follow current prevention measures to get your student vaccinated.
The first dose will be on April 29 and the second dose will be given on May 20, 2021. Below are the COVID-19 Appointment Forms, consent forms and information about the COVID-19 Vaccine.
Take Home COVID-19 Testing
The State of Minnesota has provided free COVID-19 test kits for middle and high schools so that we can offer COVID-19 tests for all students to take home and return to be sent to the lab.
If a student or staff member has an at home test kit that needs to be sent, they will be sent in with the next group of testing on April 27. The schools will not have any zoom enabled take home tests for that round of testing.
At home test kits will be available for students to pick up on May 10 to be taken at home during the next round of COVID-19 Testing. Students will be able to do the test and Zoom call at home and then return the test to the school on May 11 and will be mailed in by the school.
In order to complete the at-home test, students will need access to a computer with internet so they can connect to Zoom to walk through the process with a representative from Vault Health, the company that provides these tests. If you do not have internet access at home, your student can take the test at school using a school computer– please reach out to Sue Seip to learn more. In order to slow the spread so that we can continue learning in-person, ISD 549 encourages every family to take advantage of this opportunity to get their middle and high school students tested for COVID-19. As long as students don’t have symptoms and have not been close to someone with COVID-19, they do not need to stay out of school, sports or activities while awaiting test results.
