Permissions

The permission form listed below is required for each child attending DeWitt Public Schools and must be filled out each school year. This year the form also includes a COVID-19 Screening agreement.

For the health and safety of our students, the local public health department asks that students be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 before entering the school. The health department and the CDC do not recommend these screenings be done at the schools due to the interruption this would cause to your child’s education.

We ask that each parent/guardian perform student screening prior to sending their child to school, any school activities, or sports.
