Check backpacks: FREE at-home COVID test kits for Spring Break
Dear Sac City Unified Families,
Spring Break will remain as scheduled for April 11-15, and as with Winter Break and our February 3-day weekends, we are providing every student and staff member with free at-home COVID test kits which will be distributed this Thursday and Friday. Check your student’s backpack.
Please test your student on Sunday, April 17 and report your results to primary.health before returning to school on Monday, April 18. Whatever test result you get, we want to know! Reporting your negative, inconclusive or positive result to Primary Health helps us get the clearest picture of our community case rate and keep our community safe.
WHY SHOULD I TEST MY STUDENT?
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) created this video about how regular testing can minimize spread and help stop outbreaks.
REPORT YOUR TEST RESULTS
Learn how to report your results with this tutorial video. Download at-home test kit instructional flyers in six languages from the yellow box on the right side of the page.
Follow these simple steps to send your test result to Primary Health.

- Go to primary.health and select the green bar across the top, “Registered already…” or if you are already registered with Primary.Health, follow the link that is texted or emailed to you.
- Follow the instructions to report your results.
- If you are already registered with Primary.Health, you may also follow the “report your at-home COVID-19 test” link sent through email or text.
If you test positive, stay home and notify your school Principal or supervisor immediately.
FREE TESTING AT SERNA CENTER
We’ll also be offering COVID testing during Spring Break (April 11-15) at Serna Center at 5735 47th Avenue, Monday through Friday from 10am to 4pm. All SCUSD staff, students and household members may test for any reason, including attending an event, gathering with others, traveling, possible exposure, symptoms or just because.
STAY HOME IF SICK
We also want to remind you that any time you have symptoms associated with COVID-19, like a cough, runny nose, fever, sore throat, headache, or loss of taste or smell, to please stay home until you are fever free for 24 hours, symptoms have improved, and you have tested negative for COVID or have a physician note clearing you to return to school.
