UPDATE: Dumas ISD parents, after having the privilege to meet with Monty Hysinger, Brett Beasley, and Kelly Legg I am very proud to report that our school leaders have the best interest of our kids at heart. They will be changing the policy in regards to testing kids at school. Proud of our small town accomplishing big things together! I was reminded today of how passionate our administrators are about keeping our children safe and at school! Please see the attached for all the information on the revised policy!

On September 2, 2021 Dumas ISD, namely Superintendent Monty Hysinger and Assistant Superintendent Brett Beesly released a Facebook Live video rolling out a new COVID-19 testing policy for all students and staff of Dumas ISD. This new policy requires students and staff that have had "close contact" to either submit to COVID testing at school every other day or to go home for and quarantine for 10 days. Regardless of whether or not symptoms are present. The tests they are using are the BinaxNow Antigen Tests from Abbot Labs. On the BinaxNow informational pamphlet it clearly states that these tests are intended for use within 7 days of onset of symptoms. These tests are NOT valid for asymptomatic testing. This means that we as parents are being told to submit our children to unnecessary testing. School should be a safe place for our children, without inflicting daily trauma with unnecessary testing. It should be further stated that DISD is the only district I have found in our area exposing our children to this unnecessary tactic. DISD is claiming this testing is optional, but have basically given parents an ultimatum. Instilling fear and inflicting trauma on our children through this draconian testing protocol has to stop now. Please sign our petition to demand that DISD stop this testing/quarantine policy immediately. Thank you for your care and concern for the well being of all our children in DISD.
