Overview: New At-Home Rapid Testing Program

  • About the Test: iHealth is a 15-minute at-home FDA-approved rapid antigen test.
  • Opt-In: To participate, you must opt in by completing the LPS opt in online form. By opting in, you will agree to review the training materials for test administration, report positive test results to your student’s school, and administer the tests according to LPS guidelines.
  • Weekly: Every two weeks your child will receive an iHealth at-home rapid test kit. Each kit contains two individual tests. Your child will administer one test each week according to the schedule shared by your school.
  • Reporting Positive Test Results: If your child tests positive on an at-home antigen test, you will inform their school of the positive result using the Positive Test Result Reporting Form. The school will keep the results confidential and will not make individual results public. In addition, it is strongly recommended that you inform your healthcare professional of the positive result.
  • Statewide program update: You can find more detailed information here about Massachusetts’ update to the statewide testing program.

How do students take the test?


How do I submit results?

  • Submit Results: Only positive test results must be submitted to your child’s school. You can do so with the Positive Test Result Reporting Form.
  • Confidentiality: Positive test results are shared with the district for informational purposes only. Individual results will remain confidential, and they will not be made public.

If you have additional questions regarding the program, please contact your school nurse. Thank you for helping keep our school community healthy and safe!
