COVID-19 Rapid Testing Student Consent Form
Pearland ISD is adding a voluntary K-12 COVID-19 testing program for students. This program uses Abbott Laboratories BinaxNOW tests provided by the federal government. We will only test with your consent. In addition to written consent, you will receive a phone call before a test is administered to your child. You may provide consent for the district to administer this test on your child or yourself (if student age 18 or older), by completing the Consent Form below. The form is also available through Skyward Family Access.

When possible, all medication should be given at home by the parents. However, there are some instances that require medication to be administered during school hours. For medication to be administered at school, a parent or guardian must provide the medication in its original container along with a completed and signed medication form. Please check to make sure that the medication is not expired.
Medication can be given for up to 10 days with a Medication Administration Authorization signed by a parent or guardian. If the medication is to continue after 10 days, a physician's signature will also be required.
