Voluntary COVID-19 testing for students and staff from St. André, St. Peter and St. Pius X Catholic Elementary Schools will be held on Saturday, April 10 from 9 am to 3 pm.


The testing location is École secondaire L’Essor at 13605 St. Gregory’s Road in Tecumseh.


This voluntary testing is being made available for students and staff who are not experiencing any COVID 19 symptoms and have not been directed to isolate due to a high risk exposure but would still like to be tested.


In order to limit lineups and crowding, we have created assigned time slots which are sorted alphabetically by surname. A letter explaining all of the details about the testing process was sent home with students on March 18 and was also emailed to parents directly.


The testing is part of a community-wide approach, and all four school boards in the Windsor – Essex County area are working together to provide access to free, voluntary testing opportunities for in-person students, staff and children at schools and daycares within the community defined by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.


The other schools being invited to take part in the April 10 voluntary testing are Tecumseh Vista Academy (Elementary & Secondary); École secondaire de Lamothe-Cadillac; École élémentaire St-Antoine; École élémentaire L’envolée; A.V. Graham Public School; École élémentaire Ste-Marguerite d’Youville; & D.M. Eagle Public School.


Once school locations and dates have been determined for future voluntary testing opportunities families in those communities will be notified by their school board.
