Mandated COVID Testing

Early Childhood Academy PCS is now requiring all students to participate in weekly non-invasive saliva-based COVID-19 tests. Due to daily rising COVID cases we have decided to test students twice a week.  In effort to keep students safe and avoid missing in-person instructional time, testing will be conducted every Tuesday and Friday. Results will be received the next day.
We will utilize Shield T3 saliva-based testing. Shield T3 is a pain-free, non-invasive test, and does not require physical contact. All students will complete the test themselves with adult guidance.
This mandate began Tuesday, January 11, 2022.
Parents may opt out of testing by emailing Executive Director, Wendy Edwards at
For your convenience, we have included a video of the Shield T3 testing.
Thank you for helping to keep the students and staff of Early Childhood Academy Public Charter School safe.
