Important Note about Rapid Test Kits
The North Colonie Central School District has received approximately 90 percent of our allotment of kits from New York state. The district’s allotment is based on our 2021 enrollment.
If you previously picked up a test kit for your student, DO NOT attempt to pick up another kit or have one sent home.
We anticipate getting the remaining 10 percent of our allotment of kits at a future time. We will distribute our current allotment until we run out.
