On Friday, September 24th, the Wabash County CUSD #348 School Board approved a COVID-19 Testing policy that allows for students that are subject to quarantine by the local health department to test back into school. This is a major development in the continuous struggle to keep students in school. This 'testing in' approach was made available September 20th by the Illinois Department of Public Health. The only way a student may 'test in' is by having a parent or guardian sign a consent form for the the school nurse to perform a test. This form and the policy may be found on the Wabash CUSD #348 District Web Page under Covid 19 Information, Updates and Resources. For any other information, please contact your child's school office. Stay Safe and Go Aces!
