Your child needs to stay home when showing signs and symptoms of illness.
Please call the DMS Clinic (401) 541-6306 when you anticipate your child being tardy or absent. If your child is out ill, it is helpful to know their symptoms to determine if an outbreak of one particular illness is occurring in the school.
We ask that students stay home for the following reasons:
Fever >100.4 F
Vomiting or diarrhea
Excessive fatigue and lethargy due to their illness
Known contagious condition (i.e., strep throat, impetigo, pink eye) that has not been properly treated
Symptoms of the Covid-19 virus pending a negative Covid test

MEDICATION IN SCHOOL
All medications, with the exception of Tylenol and ibuprofen, require a Medication Permission Form signed by the child’s physician and legal guardian. Controlled substances (i.e. Adderall, Ritalin) must be brought to the clinic by the child’s parent or guardian in the original container and will be administered by the nurse per the prescribing doctor’s order. Please contact the nurse for more information.
Physicals submitted to the clinic are not forwarded to the Athletic Director. To participate in athletics at DMS, please upload your physical to the Athletics Portal.
