COVID Hotline Fall Break Hours – Testing available Nov. 23 - 24

COVID Hotline Fall Break Hours – Testing available Nov. 23 - 24

With the district being closed Thanksgiving week, the COVID hotline (833-0074) will have limited hours in order for our staff to have time to enjoy the holiday and practice self-care. 

Phones will be checked once per day the week of 11/23 with the exception of Thanksgiving when phones will be closed.  On the weekends prior to and following Thanksgiving, phones will be checked twice per day as normal.  

Please note the following hotline tips: 

  • Please allow 24 hours for a return call and avoid leaving multiple messages as this results in delays. 
  • Please limit calls to new cases to report, results to share, and questions about return to work.  If you have questions about your pay, forms, or any other follow-up question, please use the COVID hotline email at covidhotline@usd259.net so we can keep the phone lines open for more urgent issues.
  • If you find out you are positive during the holiday week, please text the phone at (316) 833-0074 to share so we can prioritize that.  Share your name, employee ID number and that you are positive.
  • If you have a new case to report, you may also choose to use the online form rather than call:  https://bit.ly/3gdEbbu.  

Please also note that due to the demand and success of the rapid COVID testing at AMAC, they will be open two days over the holiday break, from 8:00-3:00 on Mon, 11/23 and Tues, 11/24.  They can be reached at (316) 469-3595 to set up an appointment for testing.  Testing is for USD 259 staff and students.
