NO Visitors

STOP - NO VISITORS - Hamilton Health Care System

Greetings Dowagiac Middle School families,

In an effort to maintain the safety of our students and staff, we are requesting limited access to the building because of COVID-19.  As a result,  we are limiting all non-essential staff/visitors from being  permitted into the building, unless approved by administration, until this restriction is lifted. 

If for any reason you need assistance, please contact our school office at (269) 782-4440 or your child's teacher.  For your convenience, we are available during normal operational hours of from 7:20 am to 3:30 pm.

*Students may bring a lunch from home. Any other outside food will be restricted from being brought in or dropped off at the school.   Students with special health concerns or food allergies will be given further consideration of this policy on a case by case basis.  

If you drop your child off from school  late or if you  need to pick your child up early, please  contact our office and we will be happy to assist you. After verifying some information, we will call your child down and allow them to leave with you for the day.

If there is valid business you have scheduled in our building, you will be asked to fill out a COVID-19 Self-Assessment Questionnaire upon arrival.  Once completed, we will take your temperature before allowing you entrance to other areas of our facility.

We hope you understand the purpose and need to implement these policies, as we have put them in place to ensure the safety and well being of everyone in our school and broader community. 

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

Dr. Wightman
