Outside of School COVID and Close Contact Reporting for DMS - Updated

Dear DMS Families,

We want to streamline the process for families notifying Downingtown Middle School that their child/children tested positive for COVID outside of school -or- that they were in a close contact situation outside of school that requires quarantining. To do that, we’ve created a single reporting form that we are asking all families to use. Once that form is submitted, our nurse, our attendance staff, and our administrative team will receive notification. This will allow a much quicker and cohesive response amongst the working parts of our school. The link to that form is:

After we receive the form submission, our attendance team can properly code the absence(s), our nurse can use the information to contact you with additional information, and our administrative team will be aware and can coordinate any other needs. Our goal is to be as comprehensive as possible as we receive this outside information. We are also re-sharing the recent link from that explains the close contact scenarios.

 As always, we appreciate your support!
