     Morning Drop Off Procedure
    We require 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 and
    students from being tardy.  Please help us ensure the safety 
    of our students and follow these procedures.  If you
    have any questions or concerns regarding this issue please contact
    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 adelayed 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.
