2021-22 Placement Forms

In preparation for the 2021-2022 school year, we are offering parents who choose the FACE-TO-FACE option the opportunity to give input regarding teacher placement by completing the optional form. Whether you choose to complete this form or not, great care will be used in placing your child for the next school year. Please complete one form per child. Parent placement input will only be taken through the use of this form. We will consider the information below as we make the BEST possible placement for your child. DO NOT request a particular teacher by name, list any descriptors that may point to a particular teacher or request to have your child placed with another student (exception for twins). Please understand that this input form is not a guarantee in any way. This form is confidential and is used for the sole purpose of student placement. NO FORMS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER 4/30/21.

COVID Testing Center

Dr. Anthony Bartolo, father of student at MVES, has opened a new Covid testing center on Windy Hill road in Marietta. They are a CLIA Certified testing center and do rapid Covid 19 testing with results in as little as 10 minutes.  

3 Different Options:
1. 10 min Rapid Finger prick test $60-  This test is excellent for someone with symptoms and lets you know if it is active Covid and or if you have the Antibodies.
2.  15 Min Rapid Nasal Test $150-  This test can identify if you have been in the presence of someone with Covid-19 but you have not yet begun to show symptoms.  It of course will then tell us if you have active Covid and or Antibodies.
3.  Nasal PCR Test $179. -  This test will do the same as the above test but has a 5-7 day response as it has to be sent to the lab.  (This test is the most what airlines would require for international travel)

We also do the following testing:
4.  Rapid Flu $60. - This is a Nasal swab that has results in 10 minutes and is excellent for someone that has symptoms but has tested negative for Covid-19
5.  Rapid Strep $60. -   This is a Nasal swab that has results in 10 minutes and is excellent for someone that has symptoms along with a sore throat but has tested negative for Covid-19

Features online with booking as well as payments in a safe, sanitary environment to be tested.
