Officially the only way to avoid quarantine is to have a positive COVID-19 test followed by two negative tests.
what forms do I need to fill out for this? and do I need to give them notice in advance or I can show up at the airport with the supporting documents?

You first go into quarantine then submit the documents to MoH to cancel it

yes
I do not think there is a way to just show up and not quarantine, you must go in to quarantine and send the misrad habriut all your tests.

Finally found it written clearly here.
"
All returnees from abroad must observe 14 days of strict quarantine. As we have previously reported, there are many rumors, and much misinformation regarding exemptions from quarantine.
The only way to exit quarantine early is by receiving an official, written exemption from the Ministry of Health. There has been considerable confusion about how this process works. The Chaim VíChessed Medical Department, headed by Mrs. Nechama Nulman and Mrs. Shani Warsager, has held extensive discussions with senior Health Ministry staff on this matter, and we are now pleased to provide detailed instructions for this process.
Exemptions are only possible for those who have previously tested positive for Corona, with a PCR test, then tested negative abroad with a PCR test, and finally, have tested negative again, in Israel. Having antibodies is irrelevant.
If you have the above three test results, you must obtain a letter from a doctor in Israel, in which the doctor recommends that you be exempted from quarantine.
Once you have all the above, download and fill out this document. Fill out a separate form for each family member. Then email the document, along with all of your test results and the doctors recommendation to bidud[member=23435]Moh[/member].gov.il.
You should receive a response within 48 hours. Until you receive a written exemption from the Health Ministry, you must remain in quarantine."

If you have a lab results of a positive then a negative for corona and you are lucky that magen David is by the airport when you are, AFTER you go through the quarantine forms and passports, by the exit before the suitcases. Magen David checks your lab paper and does a corona test on the spot (again they are not always there) you can exit quarantine when you get the results if you test negative.
Please note that regulations change and you canít huca.
It also seams that if you quarantine in not so mainstream area (not yerushalaim or tlv) more like raanana, Ashdod, etc. They donít check on you. But ymmv.
Also be nice and relaxed by the quarantine person because they profile you and if they think you are a trouble maker they check you more.
Good luck

Was this to aggressive? I don't see a scenario that we are open by Chanukah :cry:

Your guess is as good as mine, though I think that it will be much harder to convince them to resume allowing students now.
They've seen what the compliance rate is...
If we know that they don't check up on marrieds bidud, the corona team also know that...
Also the infection rate is much higher now.

The Coronavirus Cabinet is set to convene at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday to discussed Netanyahuís request for new regulations for the lockdown.

The restrictions Netanyahu is expected to ask the Coronavirus Cabinet include the partial closure of Ben Gurion International Airport, limiting it to arriving flights while banning departures; the closure of synagogues; limitations on public protests; and the closure of much of the private sector economy.

In addition, the government is expected to request that recently retired physicians return to work to assist hospitals in handling coronavirus patients.
