Coronavirus: Health Information for Families & Staff

Des Moines Public Schools would like to provide families and staff with an update on COVID-19, commonly referred to as Coronavirus. At this time, the Iowa Department of Public Health reports there are no confirmed cases in Iowa and that there is a low risk of exposure.

However, given recent announcements by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control that Coronavirus may spread – and that cases of influenza are regularly reported – we wanted to share some additional information about steps the school district is taking as well as steps you can take to help prevent the spread of viruses.
