Grand Junction, CO - School District 51 is pleased to announce a new partnership with COVIDCheck Colorado to provide all D51 students, staff, and families access to timely, accurate, and free COVID-19 testing. With this new partnership, all D51 students, staff, and families can get tested by appointment for COVID-19 in the parking lots at Grand Mesa Middle School and Fruita Monument High School.

Both sites are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. Times and days of operation are subject to change. Appointments are required.

You can schedule an appointment online for either of the new school testing sites at D51 employees and students should use this link in order to register within the D51 system. Employees will need to have their employee ID number ready. Your ID number can be found on your monthly Leave and Earnings Statement in the same row as your name, contact information, and pay period information. Parents signing up their students for an appointment will need to use password 9V2B48WR. Family members and community members do not need an ID number or password and can use this link to register:

In addition to the new school testing sites, testing will continue to be offered at Colorado Mesa University and the Mesa County Fairgrounds. Members of the community are welcome to use any of these four testing options and do not need an ID number.

Those who get tested through the partnership with COVIDCheck Colorado should receive results in 72 hours or less. Those who test positive for COVID-19 will receive a phone call from a telehealth provider with more information and guidance on self-isolation. Those with a negative test result will receive an email.
As required by law, all positive cases will be reported to local public health agencies and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Those who have been exposed to the virus will be notified in accordance with the state’s contact tracing protocols and health privacy practices.

We want to thank John Marshall and Dr. Bronson at Colorado Mesa University for partnering with D51 to help bring COVIDCheck Colorado to the district. Our continued partnership with CMU, Mesa County Public Health, and our local officials will help to keep our schools safe and open for in-person learning.
