    • The Rhoades School has partnered with the California Department of Public Health to offer free COVID-19 testing for TK-Grade 8 students and all staff through Primary.Health. Only students who are registered with Primary.Health will be tested. The testing program is voluntary but highly encouraged. We will test students who consent to participate in the program if the individual has been identified as a close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and is showing one or more symptoms of COVID-19. If you would like your child to participate in The Rhoades School COVID-19 testing program, follow these steps:
      • New families:
        • Preschool students are excluded from COVID Testing
        • Click this link to register: https://my.primary.health/l/rhoadesschool.
