What kind of COVID-19 test is given?

The COVID-19 test is a nasal swab PCR test that the students can self-administer under the supervision 
of a PUSD nurse. Testing materials are provided by Valen-cia Lab and results will be 
received within 24-48 hours. 

Who will be tested? 

Students with informed consent will be tested. Any interested staff can be tested. 

How can parents give informed consent?

Parents can provide informed consent through two ways:

• Register through the online platform: 
• Complete the hard copy registration forms in English or Spanish which will be provided for 
you by the COVID-19 Response Team. 
What do parents and staff need to do prior to testing?

We encourage parents and staff to register with the COLOR system prior to arriv-ing for testing. 
If the student or staff member has tested with PUSD before, they will not have to register again.
To register for COVID-19 testing, please use this link: COVID-19 Response Team will also bring posters of the QR code that con-nects directly to 
the testing link. 

When does the COVID-19 Response Team come to my school?

Multiple COVID-19 Response Team members are organized to go to each school one time per 
week. As resources increase, teams will begin to go to each site for more than one scheduled visit. 
Testing will take place at SMMS on Fridays from 7:45am - 3:30pm

If you are a single 
parent, life for you 
probably couldn’t get 
any busier. You are likely 
being pulled between 
work, school activities,
and home -and the 

inevitable emergencies that fill the lives of allparents everywhere. 

Being a single parent is a huge responsibility, evenif you do share time with a parenting partner,
and especially so if you don’t. Regardless, as a 
single parent, your children’s lives are largely in 
your hands alone. So, what would happen toyour children if something happened to you?
Who would take care of them? Who would pay 
for their housing and food? Who would pay for 
their education? These are questions you need toget answered, and the only sure way to get thoseanswers is through estate planning. 

Having an estate plan that covers the care of 
your children in case you should be in a severe 
accident, fall ill, or die brings peace of mindfor the single parent knowing everything andeveryone they love is taken care of. Here are 
the must-haves that can protect your children ifsomething were to ever happen to you: 


A will lets you name the person responsible foryour estate and belongings as well as who willinherit your assets. Most importantly this is thelegal vehicle you use to name a guardian for yourchildren. Without a will, the state will decidetheir fate. The greatest risk you leave behindwhen ignoring this piece of your estate plan isthat your children could be taken into the care ofstrangers at any time. 

Revocable Living Trust 

There are so many benefits of a living trust forsingle parents. First, a trust enables you to stillcontrol your money and property while you’reable, but if you die or become incapacitated,
it transitions that decision-making authorityimmediately to the person you have namedas your trustee (obviously someone you cantrust and count on to do what you would havewanted). If your children are still minors or evenyoung adults their inheritance can be handledfor them until the time comes when they arecapable (and you decide that time). Plus, ifyou have a trust, your estate doesn’t have to gothrough probate, which can be costly and time-
consuming. Without a trust, you risk drainingyour hard-earned money on probate costs. 

Durable Power of Attorney 

As a single parent, you are likely the onlysignatory on your mortgage, bank accounts,
and other financial instruments. What would 
happen if you became incapacitated and there 

was no one to pay the mortgage or the bills? That 
is why it is important to have a durable power ofattorney in place. When choosing your power ofattorney agent, it should be someone you trustto manage your financial affairs and make legaldecisions on your behalf if you are unable to doso yourself. 

Advance Medical Directive 

An advanced medical directive gives legal power,
to the person you choose, to make your healthcare decisions in case you are not capable ofdoing so yourself. This is especially importantif you are not married or do not have immediatefamily members nearby. 

Beneficiary Forms 

Your life insurance policy, retirement accounts,
and brokerage accounts all require beneficiarydesignations. Those you designate to receive theassets in these accounts will only receive them ifyou execute the proper beneficiary forms! Theycannot pass to your heirs via a will or trust.
And minor children should never be named as 
beneficiaries as they are not legally able to ownassets. Talk to an experienced estate planningattorney about strategies to leave these assets toyour children without court intervention. 

Kids Protection Plan® 

A Kids Protection Plan® provides parents with 
the legal planning tools they need to make sure 
there is never a question about who will takecare of your kids if you are in an accident. Theplan includes legal documents to name short-
and long-term guardians, instructions for those 
guardians, medical powers of attorney for yourminor children, and more. 

As a parent – especially a single parent – youneed to be informed and empowered so youcan protect what matters most. Don’t leave yourestate planning on the “to do list”. Take care of it 
now to ensure your children are taken care of in 
the future.
