Voluntary Testing

Voluntary Asymptomatic Testing

Voluntary Asymptomatic Testing Clinic at Kenner Collegiate Vocational Institute

The school board continues to support the Targeted Testing in Schools Program under the direction of Ministry of Education representatives, along with local Medical Offices of Health.  Testing clinics are being offered on a rotating basis throughout the board and are run by LifeLabs, Canada’s largest medical laboratory, to provide free COVID-19 testing for all students and their family members, teachers, and staff.  COVID-19 testing is voluntary and only for asymptomatic individuals (those who are not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms).

A voluntary COVID-19 testing clinic will be available for students, staff and their family members in your area on Saturday, May 8, 2021. 

If you are interested in participating, testing will be available:

  • Date: Saturday, May 8, 2021
  • Time: 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
  • Location: Kenner Collegiate Vocational Institute, Gym, 633 Monaghan Rd S, Peterborough, ON
  • Please enter through the main doors.  LifeLabs’ staff and signage will be onsite to help direct you.

There is no pre-registration for this clinic, participants will be registered upon arrival.  An Ontario Health Card is required to participate in the testing.  

Shorter swab = less discomfort!
The test process is very simple and safe and the collection site will be staffed by professionals who will be following a multitude of safety parameters.  The test is less invasive than previous options and uses a shorter nasal swab (like a Q-tip) that doesn’t reach as far back in the nose.  After the sample is collected, the test results will then be available within 24-48 hours at https://covid19results.ehealthontario.ca:4443/agree.

In accordance with Public Health guidelines, all attendees are screened and required to answer three questions upon arrival at our clinics: 

  1. Are you presently in self-isolation / quarantine due to travel history or have you been told to self-isolate by public health?
  2. Do you have any new or worsening symptoms of COVID-19?  These include: fever or chills, cough, sore throat, extreme fatigue or tiredness, body aches, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell, loss of appetite, headache, nausea or vomiting.
  3. Have you had or been recommended to have a COVID-19 test by a medical health professional or public health within the last 14 days?

Anyone who answers YES to any of these questions will be turned away and directed to a COVID-19 assessment centre for testing.

If a student or staff member is part of a class (or cohort) that has been dismissed from school, and has been told to self-isolate due to potential exposure to a COVID positive person in their class, they will not be allowed to come into the clinic for testing.  They should utilize the public system and obtain testing at an alternate location, like a hospital-run assessment centre, that has been established to handle symptomatic individuals and those with known exposure to COVID positive individuals.

Transferring to Kawartha Pine Ridge Virtual High School (KPRVHS)

Parents wishing to transfer their student to the Kawartha Pine Ridge Virtual High School (KPRVHS) must contact their home school guidance department. Parents should also contact guidance to request a transfer from KPRVHS to their home school. 

Parents requesting a transfer to KPRVHS should be aware that;

  • Students will no longer have a timetable at their home school and course availability may change if the student chooses to return later in the school year.  The student will be registered with the VHS and no longer registered at their home school. 
  • KPRVHS does not offer all the course that a regular high school offers so it may not be possible to match courses. 
  • KPRVHS is not able to offer specialized programs such International Baccalaureate (IB), Skilled Trades related courses. 
  • Students are required to participate in a minimum of 225 minutes of daily scheduled synchronous learning between the hours of 8:30 am and 2:30 pm. 

Requests to transfer will be considered up to October 30th so that appropriate staffing can be put in place to support the changes in enrolment.  Quadmester two starts on November 23rd.
