Wayne County Schools Launches Voluntary COVID Testing Program for Students and Staff
In an effort to combat COVID-19 spread and to ensure schools remain open, Wayne County Schools is coordinating a Voluntary COVID Testing Program for all students and staff. The district will utilize a less invasive PCR Saliva Test.
The district will conduct testing on a regularly scheduled basis at all school sites to assist in identifying positive cases and preventing the spread of COVID-19. Randomly scheduled tests will begin during the month of September. Preventing outbreaks in schools and classrooms will help ensure that schools remain open for in-person instruction.
In addition to the scheduled testing, the district will also provide testing services for specific classrooms or school sites experiencing an outbreak.
Participation in the COVID-19 testing program is voluntary. Students will be eligible for testing upon receipt of the permission form. To enroll your child in the testing program, parents or guardians must complete and return a permission form no later than Friday, September 10, 2021.Permission Form

Due to an anti-theft policy that had previously been implemented by the Wayne County Schools, some school computers will not allow you to login after being away from the school for two weeks. We have since removed this restriction, however, if your computer is affected, you will start receiving a pop-up message warning you that your access is about to expire when you start approaching the two-week limit. We have made Wi-Fi available outside of our schools where you can drive up and connect to the schools Wi-Fi without having to go in. The area where Wi-Fi should be accessible at each school may be seen by going to the following link https://www.wayneschoolswv.org/wifi . You can simply drive up to any school, connect Wi-Fi, log off or restart your device, then log back in with your regular username and password and this should correct any further login issues. If for some reason you do not have transportation to one of the schools, you can call the technology hotline at (681) 203-5268. Technical support is available M-F 8 to 4. * Please make sure you are connected to the Wi-Fi before you log in or nothing will change and your laptop will not update! *
