Dear Potter’s House Families and Staff,


We are glad to inform you that The Potter’s House will be resuming our weekly testing program in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).

Through the MDHHS MI Safe Schools Testing Program, we will be able to provide optional weekly testing while supplies are available. No previous sign-up is required.

Only Rapid Antigen tests will be provided at The Potter’s House moving forward. If you would prefer a PCR test, you can schedule an appointment with the Kent County Health Department by clicking here: KCHD PCR Testing.

This service will be provided completely free of charge for any student, staff member, or parent. The testing will help us identify any positive cases as soon as they are detected, take the appropriate actions to notify parents & staff, and keep more students in school, thereby lessening the number of disruptions to the lives of our families.
