As you know, our school is in Governor Cuomo’s designated yellow zone and therefore we have to have 20 % our students and staff tested weekly. McKinley Brighton’s testing date and time Thursday, November 19th beginning at noon.


This is only for students in PODS B and C attending school on November 19, 2020.


The testing will take place in our gymnasium and you are welcome to accommodate your child while they are tested.  You will have to call the main office and let us know that you are at the rear of the building and we will let you in to the gym so that you can be with your child. You will have to exit the building once they are done However, you will need to wait in your car while waiting for the results – usually within 15 minutes.  You must wear a mask while in the building at all times.


This test is considered non-invasive with the swab barely going up the nose and is the BioNax Now test.


In order for your child to be tested, we need you to register by going to the Onondaga County Registration Site at:
