COVID TESTING CLINIC AT WHITE LAKE
Our COVID Testing Clinic has moved and is officially in the new shed, behind the big gym. To access the testing clinic you will need to use Center Street, and pull up to the front of the shed. The staff has requested that you walk up and knock on the door, so they know you are there. There is a sign on the door that you can scan to get the registration process started. If you need assistance with registering, clinic staff can help you. Once you are finished, you can turn around and then exit onto Center Street. For the safety of our recess/gym class students, we ask that you do NOT drive across the parking lot to enter or exit onto School Street. The clinic will be open Monday-Friday, from 7AM-4PM.
When registering with the COVID Clinic online, White Lake will not show up because it is a Private Testing Site. Select "Private Testing Site" button above Location Map when prompted to receive your registration QR Code.
Reimbursement on Educational Expenses and Internet Assistance
The Foundation for Rural Housing is a nonprofit that helps to prevent homelessness. They have a program right now that is for reimbursement of supplement educational expenses. This program is designed to prevent, prepare, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualified applicants can receive reimbursement up to $300 for supplemental educational expenses. You must provide them with receipts of the expenses. To qualify for this program you must be at or below 150% of FPL. Typically, if your child qualifies for the free lunch program you will qualify for our program. Examples of qualified expenses are masks, hand sanitizer, internet charges, electronic devices, paper, printer ink, printer and school supplies/clothes if you indicate you have other out-of-pocket expenses that have made it more difficult to purchase school related items.
In addition, this organization has a program called HomeNet. If you need internet at home and cannot afford the services for your middle/high school students, please give them a call at (608) 238-3448 or email email@example.com. You can find all of their assistance program information at https://www.wisconsinruralhousing.org/.
