COVID-19 Reporting Data

COVID-19 Reporting Information for Families

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) requires that all K-12 schools maintain a reporting system for parents to report positive tests and/or cases of COVID-19, as well as maintain a reporting system for parents to be made aware of positive cases within the school setting. 

Parents or guardians of students and school staff members who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 by test of clinical diagnosis, are encouraged to notify their school no later than 24 hours after receiving the confirmed diagnosis. Please call the following numbers for each school to report such case(s) to the Attendance Office.

DHS, 330-364-7147

DMS, 330-364-7121

DA, , 330-364-7117

East, 330-364-7114

South, 330-364-7111

Following notification from the Tuscarawas County Health Department (TCHD) of a student, teacher, staff member, or coach who has tested positive or been diagnosed with COVID-19, school officials will notify, to the extent allowable by applicable privacy laws, teachers, staff, and families of students who were close contacts as soon as possible that someone in the school has tested positive.  Any necessary quarantine notifications due to potential exposure will come from the TCHD. District nurses have been trained in this process and will assist the TCHD as needed.

For this reason, it is CRITICAL that parents ensure the district has updated email contact information for all parents. 

Online notification will also be provided to all parents or guardians of students at the school building notifying parents and the school community of COVID-19 cases within the schools.  That information is updated daily as needed HERE.
