Onsite COVID-19 Testing Program

Melissa ISD partners with the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Texas Department of Emergency Management (TDEM) to offer rapid COVID-19 tests for use in schools and at a dedicated drive-thru testing site.

  • If there is any chance that your student could be experiencing symptoms while at home that are consistent with COVID-19, rather than sending your student to school, please request a drive-thru rapid COVID-19 test to rule out any possibility of a COVID-19 diagnosis.

  • 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.
