FPS COVID-19 Testing Program
With the goal of keeping students and staff in school, Fargo Public Schools is working to create a testing program in schools. Each school will have a scheduled time during the day that they will have BinaxNOW rapid testing available for both students and staff.
If a student or staff member is deemed an unmasked close contact, they can use this program to remain in school. In order to participate in the testing program, parents must fill out the testing consent form for their child in PowerSchool. The student or staff member must test at least every other day and remain asymptomatic during the duration of the testing program. Students and staff members should work with their building administration and testing staff to determine which days to test and work around scheduling conflicts.
Fargo Public Schools plans to have this program running as soon as possible. For the time being, Fargo Cass Public Health will provide testing for students and staff. Testing is available from Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The testing site is located at 3051 25th Street South, Fargo, Suite K, in the Family Fare Strip Mall. Those being tested must register in advance at testreg.nd.gov. It is a one-time registration process.
