MASK GUIDELINES

  • Beginning March 28th, the district will move from “masks mandated” to “masks strongly recommended”  for staff, students, and all visitors to DPS buildings.
  • All students and school personnel are strongly encouraged to continue to wear masks.  Those who choose to continue wearing masks, as well as those who choose not to wear a mask, are expected to respect the choice of others.  The district will not tolerate any type of bullying or intimidation as it relates to a person’s choice to mask or not.

EXPOSURE & QUARANTINE GUIDELINES

  • Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must ISOLATE for 5 days regardless of vaccine status. They may come out of isolation after 5 days if they have no symptoms or have been fever-free for 24 hours (without medication). The individual must wear a mask, social distance, and continue to wash hands. You do not need a negative test to return.
  • If you were EXPOSED to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and are asymptomatic, you can continue working, wear a mask for 10 days and test after day 5 if possible.
  • If you were EXPOSED to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 and have symptoms, stay home and get tested or consult your healthcare provider. Employees may come out of isolation after 5 days if they have been fever-free for 24 hours (without medication). The individual must wear a mask, social distance, and continue to wash hands regularly. You do not need a negative test to return. 
  • The district follows guidelines set forth by the Ohio Department of Health and Montgomery County Department of Health.

OTHER PREVENTATIVE MEASURES

  • The district will continue to thoroughly clean buildings and sanitize high-touch surfaces.
  • DPS will follow guidance on social distancing as much as possible.
  • Proper and frequent hand washing will continue to be encouraged. 
  • Students will continue to use water bottle filling stations rather than drinking fountains.
