COVID home testing kits (lateral flow tests)

Home testing kits (lateral flow tests) are available within school for our S1-S6 pupils. We strongly encourage all young people, as well as all staff, to undertake these tests twice a week to support the safety of the school community.

Young people due to enter S1 at Dalkeith High School are eligible to take home tests in the lead up to starting with us in August. Testing kits are available free of charge to any household and can be ordered via the link below:

Taking these tests prior to the start of the school year will help us to ensure the safest start possible.

Once the young people are with us, we can then provide them with further testing kits within school.

 

Thank you for your support in this.
