  • A Message From The School Nurse: January 17, 2021

     Dear Harding Parents, 

    We just completed our second week of providing COVD-19 testing on campus, and we are so grateful to partner with the PathGroup to be able to provide this service to our community. For those of you who have not used our testing site yet I wanted to go over the details with you, and for those who have, I just want to share a few reminders. 

    Who can get tested: 
    1. We are able to test someone if they: 
      1. have been determined to be a close contact of a positive case of COVID-19 
    OR
    1. are symptomatic
    1. Individuals can use our testing site if they are at least four years old and are apart of the Harding Academy community, which includes:
      1. Faculty/Staff, and any household members
      2. Students, and any household members
      3. Individuals who help with childcare for your family (grandparents, babysitters/nannies 

    When is the testing available 
    • M-F, except for holidays and school breaks 
    • M, T, Th, F: from 8:30am to 10:30am
    • Wed: 9:30am to 11:30am
    • *We do not take walk ups and we ask that you sign up for a slot before 8am on the day of testing

    How do I sign up for an appointment
    • We have a SignUp Genius set up for you to see what times are available and to sign up for a day and time you want/need. 
    • They are ten minute time slots and you need to sign up for one slot for each person getting tested
    • This link can also be found in the COVID-19 testing tab of our Resource board 

    What to do before arriving:
    • Sign up for a slot in our SignUp Genius
    • Check for confirmation email from SignUp Genius for the day and time that you made your appt
    • Please print and fill out one requisition form for each person getting tested, and upload it (them) to our secure Dropbox. There are instructions in the COVID-19 testing link in the Resource Board on Compassnet for how to add documents to the Dropbox.
    • Take a photo of the front and back of your insurance card and upload it to our secure Dropbox

    How fast do the test results come back and how do we get them:
    • The tests we administer are PCR tests and the results are coming back in less than 24 hours, and usually by early the next morning.
    • Moira Clark, or someone on the covid response team, will email the result and report to you in the morning. If it is positive she will be available to talk after 7:30am that day.
    • Individuals do have the option to register with The PathGroup so that you can access the results on your own. The nurse that is administering the test will have a card that she can give you, which has instructions on how to register in order to do that. 

    What if there are no more slots available on the day I want/need:
    • If you need to be tested on a certain day and we are full, we are sorry. As a school we have limited capacity for testing but there are other testing sites available:
      • Complete Health Partners on Charlotte Pike tests 7 days a week and has a great drive up testing site. Click here to set up an appointment at their drive up site. They are currently getting results back in 24 hours.
      • Other great options for testing sites include Meharry, Nissan Stadium, Vanderbilt walk in clinics, etc

    What if I need to cancel my appointment:
    • If you are unable to make it to your appointment please either:
      • sign into SignUp Genius and cancel your appointment OR 
      • contact one of the nurses, by phone or email, so that they can cancel it for you. You can email them at covidtest@hardingacademy.org
    • We have limited spots and often have others waiting for a spot to open up

    Where is it located:
    • Testing is taking place in the Lower Parking Lot next to the previous Vet Clinic along Harding Place, across from the Belle Meade Tennis Center
    • We have parking spots near the tent available for you to park, and you will remain in your car and the nurse will come to your car to administer the test(s)

    If you have any other questions about our testing site please visit the COVID-19 testing  resource board where there are instructions and links available. If you still have questions after looking through that you can email us at: covidtest@hardingacademy.org or Moira Clark directly at clarkm@hardingacademy.us.
