Lead Mine Covid Testing

Wake County Public School System, in partnership with MAKO Medical Laboratories, will offer weekly, on-campus voluntary COVID-19 testing for all students and school-based staff. Lead Mine Elementary will begin the weekly volunteer testing Thursday, February 10, 2022.  Mako will be on-campus each Thursday to complete pool testing from 8:30 am-9:15 am. Testing will occur weekly for those students who have opted-in to COVID-19 testing. Lead Mine’s COVID coordinators will manage the logistics of testing and MAKO Medical Laboratories will perform the weekly tests. Families who opt-in to the weekly testing pool will receive test results via e-mail and text message when the results are available. If you are interested in the voluntary testing of your Leopard, please use the link below to register.

A shout out to those serving in so many roles on our PTA, to those volunteering to support our teachers, to those signing up to send in items to treat our faculty & staff, and to all those continuing to positively support our Little Leopards. 


For the love of Lead Mine,
