In our commitment to community partnership, the Charles Wright Academy campus will serve as a mobile walk-up and drive-through site for COVID testing on August 29 (10 am-3 pm). This service is provided by Pierce County and the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department staff to offer free testing to Charles Wright Academy families, employees, and the general public. There will not be access to Charles Wright Academy buildings or restrooms. This service is offered outdoors for walk-up or drive-through only.
