Please be aware that the school clinic is unable to store any medications at school during the summer. McKinney ISD has a policy against sending medication home with a student; therefore, you must come in personally and pick up any medications remaining in the clinic. Medication WILL NOT be sent home with your child.
All “as needed medications”, like Tylenol or Advil, will be destroyed starting at 12:00 PM tomorrow, May 21st.
All “emergency medications” - Asthma medications, Seizure medications, and Epinephrine pens must be picked up before 4:00 PM on tomorrow at which time they will begin being destroyed.
Please remember you will need to complete new medication forms for the 2021/2022 school year. The forms will be available when you pick up your child’s medication. You can talk with your child’s doctor and complete the forms before school starts in August.
Please contact the nurse with any questions at:
Leading Lion - 10 May 2021
Our Leading Lion this week is Jessica Watson, the DMS LSSP. Many of you may not even know Jessica, she helps us to determine qualifications for our sped students. Her job is multi-tiered as she does initial evaluations, three year re-evaluations and helps us with manifest determinations. This is a busy time of year for her! What you also probably don’t know is that she is also a new mom! She has a lot going on and she comes to work everyday with a smile on her face even though she is exhausted beyond words! We are so proud to have her as a member of our Dowell family!!!
Virtual Learning Expectations
Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures
Box Tops for Education
Our goal at Dowell Middle School is to maximize learning time. One of the ways we do this is by establishing a standard of students' arrival in the classroom. When a student arrives late to class, we call this "tardy”.
This year we are using a new communication tool, which will email a parent each time the student is tardy to a class. The tardy count resets each quarter.
· First Unexcused Tardy is a warning
· Second Unexcused Tardy is a 30 minute after-school detention
· Third Unexcused Tardy is a hour after-school detention
· Fourth Unexcused Tardy is a two hour after-school detention
· Five or more Unexcused Tardies per quarter, are a three hour after-school detention each occurrence
* All detentions are served on Thursday afternoons
