COVID-19 Testing through ESD 123

ESD 123 is proud to partner with Washington's ESDs and 150 school districts to provide regional COVID-19 screening and testing through the state's Learn to Return program. Through Learn to Return, school-based COVID-19 testing is being offered to minimize transmission of the disease and maximize time for student learning and engagement.

For School Districts:

ESD 123's Learn to Return program can supply K-12 school districts with testing supplies and support for developing testing programs. Health Commons is partnering with Washington's ESDs to support districts with COVID testing. Districts interested in enrolling in the program or learning more should visit learntoreturn.org/enroll.

For ESD 123 Employees:

Any ESD employee and/or household member who is showing symptoms or has been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 is eligible for a test. Rapid and PCR* COVID-19 tests are performed by trained ESD 123 staff on site at the ESD Court Street campus in Pasco.

Steps for Scheduling your COVID Test at ESD 123:

  1. Each individual wishing to be tested must schedule a time to come in for testing through this link: https://koalendar.com/e/covid-19-testing-at-esd-123-main-campus
  2. After choosing a time slot, the link will redirect the tester to the Learn to Return flyer that has two testing options on the flyer:
    • Rapid testing (if exposed 3-5 days ago, but asymptomatic)
    • Curative/PCR lab testing (if experiencing symptoms).
  3. Upon arrival, testers will call the COVID Testing phone number at 509-537-6211. Please do NOT call the main ESD line.
  4. The designated parking for testing will be facing the PDC building, closest parking parallel to Road 40.

*PCR test: Stands for polymerase chain reaction test. This is a diagnostic test that determines if you are infected by analyzing a sample to see if it contains genetic material from the virus.
