Updated Guidelines to the Test to Stay (TTS) Pilot Program
Recent updates have been made to the guidelines of the Test to Stay (TTS) Pilot
Program from the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) and their partnership with the
Arkansas Department of Education (ADE).
As of Tuesday, October 12, 2021:
● K-12 students are now eligible to participate in the program
● Students must be quarantined due to a school exposure to participate
● Students participating in the TTS program will be swabbed upon arrival daily by
their building nurse
● Students must remain asymptomatic through their quarantine period
● Masks must be worn correctly at all times throughout their quarantine period
● Pre-K students are not eligible at this time
TTS is an option to the traditional quarantine guidelines which are still in effect.
Parents/guardians have the option to choose to follow the traditional quarantine
guidelines for their students.
Mandatory consent forms must be turned in to the school nurse before participating in
the program. Test to Stay consent forms will remain valid for the remainder of the
semester unless the guardian chooses to withdraw consent.
If your child is currently quarantined, you may contact your school nurse if you are
interested in participating in the TTS program.
