Drive-Thru Rapid COVID-19 Testing
As part of Melissa ISD’s continued mitigation efforts surrounding COVID-19, the district’s onsite rapid COVID-19 testing program expanded to offer drive-thru testing for students and employees.
Drive-Thru Testing Requirements
You must stay in your car the entire time you are at the drive-thru testing site.
Drive-thru testing is for Melissa ISD students and employees only and a completed permission form is required.
Tests are free of charge.
Drive-thru testing is first come, first served during testing hours, while supplies last.
Initial test results are available within 15-20 minutes. However, please be prepared to experience wait times due to the large volume of test requests.
If you choose to have your student tested for COVID-19 at the drive-thru testing site, the student’s test result (whether positive or negative) can serve as medical documentation for a medically-excused absence, as long as the documentation is turned in to the school.
If your student is being tested:
A completed parental consent form is required in order for a student to receive a rapid onsite COVID-19 test from Melissa ISD. Use the following links to print the parental consent form: English | Spanish.
Upon arrival, the parent/guardian must present their drivers license, the completed consent form, and everyone in the car must be wearing a disposable mask.
