Currently, the Sioux City Community School District is not conducting rapid COVID-19 tests in our buildings. However, the State approved the District to conduct rapid COVID-19 tests in the buildings.
Upon the approval of the purchase of rapid COVID-19 tests by the Sioux City Community School District Board of Directors, tests will be secured, and voluntary testing will begin in our buildings. Students will only be tested if there is parent/guardian approval.
