COVID-19 Information and Resources

We encourage all students, staff, volunteers and visitors to self-check temperatures and other COVID-19 symptoms prior to reporting to school. Parents who suspect their student may have COVID-19 are asked to keep the student home, consult a doctor, and inform school personnel if there is a confirmed diagnosis. Browse the resources below to learn about COVID-19 symptoms, testing, and when to stay home if you are sick.

District COVID-19 Dashboard

The Ohio Department of Health requires K-12 schools to notify parents, guardians, and local health departments when students, teachers, staff members, or coaches test positive for COVID-19. The state encourages parents and guardians to report positive cases to schools.


This report will be updated each Friday, to show the number of staff and student cases reported to the District within the previous seven days.  

Quanrantine Guidelines

DPS has followed all quarantine guidelines since staff returned in May 2020 and works closely with the Montgomery County Department of Health for all contact tracing. 


Following the governor’s latest recommendations in December 2020:


  • Students do not need to quarantine if another student or staff member tests positive as long as masks were worn consistently and a safe distance was maintained. Studies have shown that the risk of virus transmission is very low in a classroom setting when safety measures are used, even to those in close proximity to the infected person.

  • Students exposed in their household must quarantine for 14 days.

  • Students exposed outside of their household must quarantine for 10 days. However, parents can choose to quarantine for the full 14 days. 

  • Staff exposed in their household must quarantine for 14 days.

  • Staff exposed outside of the household must quarantine for 10 days (no COVID test).

  • Staff exposed outside of the household must quarantine for 7 days (with a negative COVID test; tested on day 5 or later).


*Please note: if a student has been exposed in their household or tests positive for COVID-19, all students living in that household must quarantine for 14 days. 


If a student tests positive for COVID-19, parents must report the case to the school immediately. School phone numbers can be found here
