Frisco ISD announced Thursday that it has closed its COVID-19 testing site at Kuykendall Stadium and will move to a location with greater capacity due to high demand.
The site at Kuykendall Stadium opened Tuesday of this week. On its first day of operation, the testing site received “overwhelming interest,” according to the district, and prompted the district to close the location on its third day of operation.
“In order to better serve FISD students and staff, the current COVID-19 testing site will close effective today, Jan. 13,” the district wrote on Twitter.
The district will resume COVID-19 testing Tuesday at Bacchus Park, 13995 Main Street. Staff should enter from Main Street, while students are required to enter from Independence Parkway.
Testing will be available daily from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. for staff and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. for students. Limited resources, weather conditions or worker shortages could close the site without notice, although the district would put an alert on its COVID-19 testing website.
The district does not require appointments for COVID-19 testing, but students and staff must pre-register online.
Registrants must show staff or student identification, or the “Student Identification Form for FISD COVID Testing Site” document as proof of enrollment. For students, one of the listed guardians must be present, show the document and offer corresponding identification.
