DMS Information Update

Important Information/Updates:

Office Hours
As we begin to transition back to our “new normal”, essential employees will be back to working in the physical school building. Beginning June 9th, Discovery Middle will have office hours by appointment ONLY from 9:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M Monday-Thursday. You may schedule an office appointment by emailing Mrs. Leanne Mackey at lmmackey@madisoncity.k12.al.us.

Visitors
All visitors to the school will be required to pass a COVID-19 screening that includes a temperature check upon entering the building. A mask is REQUIRED to be worn in the building during the entirety of all appointments and meetings. Employees will be wearing masks as well. This procedure comes from our Madison City Schools plan for returning to campus and is the procedure for all school campuses in our district. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Technology
The district technology department will provide us with a plan at a later date in regard to returning technology you have checked out. Please keep these items in a safe and secure place until then.

Grades
Final grades on report cards for the 4th nine weeks grading periods will reflect in an S1 which means satisfactory. All final numerical grades for the 2019-2020 school year reflect an average of the three grading periods that were completed. Please be sure to check iNow for report card grades.

Student Enrollment
Student enrollment for the 2020-21 school year is open. You should receive an email with a code and directions for re-enrollment. Please make sure your email address in the INOW parent portal is up-to-date. You can visit the MCS registration website for the most up-to-date information at: https://www.madisoncity.k12.al.us/domain/113

Blue Cards

A blue box is available outside of the DMS front office from 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on weekdays for parents to drop off updated student Blue Cards.                                                      

Yearbooks/Textbooks
If you were not able to pick up a purchased yearbook last week, we have another pick up day this Thursday, June 11th from 9am - 11am. Please drive up to the front loop by the front entrance of the school. You will not need to get out of your car. If you are in possession of textbooks or library books for 8th grade students, you can return those as well. If this time does not work, you can email Leanne Mackey, lmmackey@madisoncity.k12.al.us to set up an appointment.

Field Trip Refunds
We are working diligently to get all refunds processed for funds that have been returned to us. Space Camp refunds have been processed and sent out. We are still waiting to receive funds in order to process the band/choir trip. We will get those processed as quickly as possible once the funds have been received.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in these matters.
