After a two year hiatus, the Crestwood Caper School Carnival, our largest annual fundraiser, is back! Please join our informational session to hear all about plans in the works, as well as ways in which parents and staff can contribute. Your input and participation is vital to pull off this massive event!

Volunteers are absolutely essential for this event. Consider donating one hour of your time (or more!) to make this event a reality. See all the volunteer opportunities here.

CAPT is excited to announce the return of Explore Science Night, which will be held in a special outdoor format! This event is designed to get students excited about science through demonstrations from local science experts, as well as having the opportunity to create and present their own science project.
To make this amazing event a reality we need volunteers to help set up (starting at 5:30pm) and tear down after the event. Sign up by emailing Melanie Ivancic at email@example.com.
More information will be coming soon about student posters/presentations so be sure to keep an eye out!

CAPT Board Positions 2022-2023
We are looking for several volunteers to fill positions on the CAPT Board for the next academic year.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If your child is symptomatic and you have insurance please call your kids doctor. They can usually get tested same day, and get results in 24 hours or less. This is the BEST way to go if they have symptoms.
MMSD test clinics
If they don’t have symptoms or you don’t have insurance, MMSD has a lot of testing sites. Memorial High School is often the busiest, but there are many clinics on the west side. Often results from any site using COVID Connect (English , Español, Hmong) to register take longer.
Here is a spreadsheet that’s updated regularly by MMSD showing all testing locations. Crestwood now has a testing site! COVID Clinic Test Sites
More information on clinics: Vaccine Clinics
Free in-home tests
Through the US Postal Service, you can order four (4) free rapid COVID tests shipped to your home (maximum 4 per household). MMSD guidance is fluid as is the science on COVID, but having rapid tests on hand may allow your child to get back in school sooner if they should test positive. To order your free testing kits, go to https://special.usps.com/testkits.
Through the state of Wisconsin, you can get an at-home saliva collection kit, which is a PCR test. You will need to collect your sample live on Zoom, so a phone or computer is required. To order your free PCR test, go to https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/covid-19/collection.htm.
