Student Screening for Symptoms

Starting Wednesday, October 6th, TUSD is discontinuing ‘green screening’ students at the front gates of our K-12 schools each morning. We have yet to see a ‘red screen,’ which we believe is an indication that parents are keeping students home if they are not feeling well or are exhibiting any symptoms related to COVID-19.

It is very important that you continue to screen your student(s) every morning before sending them to school.  These screenings must check for:

  • any symptoms such as current or recent fever (100.4° or higher) or feeling feverish (chills, sweating) 
  • cough 
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea

Please keep your student(s) home if they are experiencing these symptoms, and also have them tested for COVID-19.

COVID-19 Testing Open for All Students and Staff

We offer free PCR testing at our four main high school sites, (North, South, West and Torrance High) for any student or staff, Monday through Friday.  Locations and hours of these sites can be found at:

Please note:

  • Please arrive no later than 5:30 pm Monday through Thursday.
  • You must arrive by 5:00 pm on Fridays so that samples can get into the last courier run for the week.  
  • This testing is open to any student or staff at no charge, so please use this if there is any indication of symptoms, or even if you’d like baseline testing for your student.
