Dear Bellmore-Merrick Families:

As a reminder, the regularly scheduled weekly COVID testing for student-athletes will occur at Brookside School tomorrow, Wednesday, February 24th.

If you have yet to do so, in order to expedite the lab results and decrease wait time, it is recommended you access the registration portal by clicking here.  This process will only have to be completed once. If you do not register through the portal provided, your child will not be able to complete his/her testing. Kindly take a screenshot once you have completed the registration process so that the technician can confirm it has been completed properly.

ATC Testing and Screening Services and ProPhase Diagnostics are no longer be accepting paper registration forms. Additionally, should you choose to test your child on your own, you must have a PCR Covid test result. Rapid tests will not be accepted for “High Risk” sports participation.  

After your child’s sample is taken, ProPhase Diagnostics will process it accordingly. Remember, YOU WILL ONLY BE CONTACTED IF YOUR CHILD TESTS POSITIVE. If you are NOT contacted, your child’s sample was negative. 

Please see the testing times by schools for testing at Brookside School below. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work with ATC and ProPhase Diagnostics to provide COVID testing as efficiently and effectively as possible for our student-athletes.
