COVID Information

If a student or someone in their household has a pending COVID test, he/she should not attend school while the test results are being finalized. If the parent is notified by a physician that the test is negative, the student can return to school. If the student has a positive test, the parent should provide documentation to the school and follow quarantine orders from the Mississippi State Department of Health. If a parent sends his/her child to school while waiting for COVID test results, the parent is knowingly risking the potential of COVID-19 transmission to staff members and other students. In addition, these actions could cause students and/or staff members to be quarantined by the Mississippi State Department of Health for 14 days. If your child says he/she does not fell well, please do not send them to school.

Parents- For access to your child's schedule, attendance, and grades please make sure you have access to Parent Portal. If you need your password reset or a new account set up, please email a copy of your photo ID to dawn.mulrooney@dcsms.org.
