  1. Pool testing problems

    Thank you. You have taught me something new. I only have used the kits of 30 tests per box. I didn't know that there is such a thing as a single test kit. (Can I go home now? I have already one thing new already todayπŸ˜‰)
  2. Pool testing problems

    Just a thought. The box of BinaxNOW that I opened recently. Seems to take a little bit longer for the fluid to travel up the testing window. It isn't the test card itself. It seems that the swabs have a little more cotton on it. But, it still works....
  3. Good afternoon- Would any of you have a Parental Consent form so I can exchange information with a students Doctor? If so, would you be willing to share it with me? The one I have is ancient. Thank you for your thoughts- πŸ™‚

  7. Test to Stay

    Sorry. I need to clarify this. The information that is to sent home with all those who are tested. Indicated that the person that tested positive's healthcare provider will determine if further testing is needed. With that being said- I always ...

  9. Test to Stay

    Jed- You raise a point that I have pondered on many times. Because of that, I am ONLY testing symptomatic - mostly adults. I have done a few kids- only with the parent present. I have been very satisfied and am quite confident in the BinaxNOW in thes...
  10. Test to Stay

    This is very interesting. Missouri is in the process of making this an option. I am so thankful for any information that I can gather. I am already doing the rapid BinaxNOW tests. They have been a fantastic tool to have in my toolbox. Test to Stay so...

  12. New resources for Chronic Health Conditions

    You are very welcome. We are a pretty cohesive group that help and share with each other to the benefit of our kids and school communities as a whole. Our State School Nurse Consultant and her Staff are amazing on so many levels.
  13. Leading from Behind

    I am so sorry- Wow. Is putting it lightly. The waters are so muddied. It is hard to know what to do next sometimes. I am just so sorry that is sounds like your situation is wearing on you badly. Hugs to you- a.
  14. That's So Fetch! (Pink Wednesdays)

    Far- Where. Have. You. Been.? I have wondered the same thing. I try to wear pink on Wednesdays- heck, with what COVID has done to all of us and our normal routines. We really need a little old kind of fun. Yes. We need to get this to be a re...
