    The Superintendent. Administrative staff and the Board of Education hope your summer is going well and you have spent some quality time with your children.  Please be advised that as a result of the action taken by our TCSS Board of Education clear and/or mesh back packs are not required for the 2015-2016 school year. We do prefer that you invest in this item but we understand that they are difficult to find at times and they are not as resistant and durable as other back packs.   Also, as you go shopping for school supplies please remember that we have a very specific dress code. We have posted our Dress Code policy on our website for you to easily print when you take your child shopping for school clothes. Thank you for your assistance and diligence and we hope you enjoy the remainder of your summer with your children.

     Morning Drop Off Procedure
    We are now requiring all cars to pull all the way to the end of the awning to drop off students.  We do not allow students to exit their cars before the crosswalk.  This mirrors our pick-up procedure and is being done to ensure the safety of our students.  Also, by requiring cars to pull to the end of the awning we are able to keep the line of cars moving and prevent traffic from backing up.  Please help us ensure the safety of our students and follow these new procedures.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding this issue, please feel free to contact me at school.  Mr. Michael Tilford, Assistant Principal
     
     
     
     In an effort to maximize instructional time and productivity no student may be checked out after 2:30pm.  Thank you for your cooperation.

     
    The Tuscaloosa County School System says:
     Go to School. The First Day. Every Day. All Day. #Go2Schl
    #Go2Schl will be used to allow people to follow our tweets and statuses concerning attendance via social media.
     
     
    Only one form for each household is needed even if children are in different schools.  
     
     
     Check-Out What's New on the
    DMS Library Page...e-books!
    There are three e-books that can be accessed via the DMS library webpage.  Here's how...
    Click the Parent Info tab, then Library Media Center, then Library e-books.  To login, type guestdms as both the username and password.  The three books available are After Eli, Cinder and Flora& Ulysses.  However only one user can read these books at a time.  If the book is unavailable then it is currently in use so try back another time.  Direct any questions to Mrs. Shepherd in the library (342-2830  ext.4)
      
    Notice to Tuscaloosa County School System Families:
    Along with maintaining our instructional program, student safety remains as our greatest concern. In times of threatening conditions due to severe weather, we have developed a plan throughout the Tuscaloosa County School System to allow for a delayed opening of school. If such action is required, the time for the opening of school will be announced through all normal media outlets, system website, and parent notification system. Bus transportation schedules will be adjusted to allow for the delay and breakfast will be offered upon students' arrival to school. Schools will follow their regular afternoon dismissal plan. If absences are related due to severe weather, please contact your local school administrators.
