The district included a link with the testing information and a portal to upload results to prove testing negative.
Tests must be taken within 24 hours of the Monday, November 28, return to school.
The requirement to test comes as many on the left are calling for masking and social distancing again in spite of the evidence against the efficacy of those practices.
