Dear DISD Parents,
Dayton ISD has been notified that a teacher/football coach who works for Dayton High School, and a student/football player who lives in the same household, tested positive for COVID-19 on June 18. The DHS staff member and student are currently self-quarantining at home and are being closely monitored by a physician.
Due to all campuses being closed since May 27, 2020, the exposure has been limited to the Athletic Department, specifically football. Effective immediately, summer football workouts have been discontinued until further notice and the end of the 14-day incubation period for anyone possibly exposed to the staff member is July 4, 2020
Out of an abundance of caution, we advise you to monitor your health, follow the CDC guidelines for people who have had close contact and contact your primary care physician if you develop symptoms.
Dayton ISD is continuing to monitor this situation and will provide additional information as needed.
Dr. Jessica Johnson

Dayton ISD takes all reports of bullying seriously. We have created a method for reporting bullying anonymously. Some parents have asked for clarification as to what consitutes bullying.

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.
In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:
Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
