COVID-19 Screening Testing and Pediatric Vaccination Information

Good afternoon Clermont Families,

Optional COVID-19 screening testing has begun in FCPS schools for students who are not fully vaccinated. FCPS is partnering with LongView International Technology Solutions, Inc. (LTS) to provide testing services for students.

Optional screening testing for Clermont students will take place on Mondays from 12:00 to 2:30 pm at the school. Monday, November 29th will be the first day of testing at Clermont. A Clermont staff member will always be present while children are with the LTS staff.

One-time parent/legal guardian consent is required to begin COVID screening testing for a student to be tested at school. You may withdraw your consent for testing at any time. If you want your child to begin participating in COVID-19 screening testing, you must pre-register your child(ren) and provide consent using the LTS secure online portal.

If you do not want your child to participate in COVID-19 screening testing, no action is required. You will have the option each week to update your child’s vaccination and consent for testing.

For all the details about optional COVID-19 screening testing, visit the FCPS website and review the FCPS COVID-19 Screening Testing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document.

If you have questions about how testing will be conducted here at Clermont ES, please contact Covid Care Coordinator, Megan Hendrick, at

Screening testing is a recommended layered prevention strategy that keeps Clermont safe for in-person learning. Thank you for considering registering your child.
