COVID-19 RAPID TESTING

Brenham ISD is committed to doing everything that we can to keep our students and staff healthy and safe. With this goal in mind, we are pleased to share that we will continue offering free voluntary rapid COVID-19 tests. This program will allow Brenham ISD to test individuals and will help proactively prevent the spread of COVID-19 at school. We will only test with a parent/legal guardian or staff member consent.
