SHIELD Illinois - a COVID-19 Screening Testing Program

  • School District U-46 is offering optional and free, weekly saliva COVID-19 testing to all students and staff members, regardless of vaccination status, through the University of Illinois’s SHIELD testing program. Please note, that only students whose parents/guardians submitted the signed consent form will be tested. Staff members who wish to participate must also complete the consent form. The test is simple, fast and will take place at schools during the school day. 

    Parents who want to give their consent to have their children to be tested for the COVID-19 infection must complete the online consent form. This application is available in both English and Spanish. Students who are currently enrolled do not need to complete the online form.

    Again, this is an optional test for students. We are asking that our unvaccinated staff members participate in testing in order to comply with the Governor’s Executive Order.

    Thank you for your ongoing collaboration and support as we all work together to stay safe and ready to learn in U-46.

    Find more information about the testing process under "More Resources" and by reading the two PDFs below.
