    Covid-19 Reporting Form (Updated 9/30/2020)

    Families First Corona Virus Response Act (FFCRA) COVID-19 Leave Requests 

    The FFCRA provides two types of leave:

    1. Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL); and
    2. Extended Family Medical Leave (EFML). To apply for FFCRA COVID-19 Leave, complete this Leave Request Form.

    NOTE:  Employees who submit an application for EFML, and/or EPSL, for a childcare provider closure due to a qualifying COVID-19 reason must submit the Childcare Provider Certification with their leave application in order for the District to determine qualification for the leave.  

    For information about the two types of leave, please review the Frequently Asked Questions posted below and the FFCRA Employee Rights.

    Completed COVID-19 Reporting Form goes to healthservices@ems-isd.net and leave request forms go to emp_relations@ems-isd.net.

    Employees who are absent from duty for any reason under FFCRA are required to enter an absence in the District’s absence reporting system as “Personal Illness” (if entering a reason for an absence for self) or “Immediate Family Illness” (if entering a reason for an absence of an immediate family member). 

    For questions about leave related to an illness/absence qualifying under the FFCRA, contact Amber Galloway, Personnel Specialist, at 817-232-0880 Ext. 2743 or via email at emp_relations@ems-isd.net
