Effective Dec. 15, 2021, the Melissa ISD Onsite COVID-19 Testing Program is on pause as we transition to using a new testing manufacturer. We expect to resume onsite COVID-19 testing in mid-January; at that time, we will send updated information to parents/guardians and staff. Updates will also be posted online at www.melissaisd.org/covidtesting. (Note: Please do not send your student to school if they are ill. Proof of a COVID-19 test from a local provider - whether the test result is positive or negative - can serve as documentation for a student’s medically-excused absence.)
