Good Evening Hoopeston Area Families,

Hoopeston Area will begin SHIELD testing this Friday November 19 at the Middle School, High School and John Greer. Maple will begin SHIELD testing on December 2 as that is the next available testing day after the holidays. We have 400 individuals that have provided a signed consent form to participate in this COVID-19 testing program. Hoopeston Area Schools only offered the opt-in option for testing, meaning that If you have not provided a signed consent form to your child's school, your child will not be tested. Parents may decide to provide a consent form at anytime they would like their child to participate in SHIELDS COVID-19 testing. We appreciate your patience through the process of getting SHIELDS testing to Hoopeston Area Schools.
