Principal's Weekly Bulletin
Ross Elementary School: November 15
Message from Principal Searl
During this season of Thanksgiving, I remain grateful to our community for their resilience and continued patience in challenging times.
DCPS continues to explore ways to bring additional students back into elementary schools for Term 2 using the CAREs model. Please take this quick survey to indicate your interest in the CAREs model. Information about planning for Term 3 is forthcoming.
You should have received an email from DCPS about accessing the new Aspen Parent Portal.
This is how you will view your child's K-5 report card. If you have questions, please reach out to Mr. Salazar. He is the Ross POC for the portal. email@example.com

Playground Use During ReOpening
Beginning Monday, November 16, 2020, DC Public Schools will implement an adjusted playground use policy for our elementary school playgrounds. Since 2016, it has been DCPS’ policy that school playgrounds are closed to the community during school hours. The only modification we are making to this policy is that the playground will not be available for use before the school day begins, as well. This change will allow us to continue to keep our students attending CARE and In-Person Learning classrooms safe and healthy during the school day. I understand this may be disappointing news to our families.
Members of the public will still be able to enjoy school playgrounds between the hours listed below.
· Monday through Friday from 3:30 p.m. until dusk, but no later than 8:00 p.m. (On Wednesdays, the playground will be open starting at 12:30pm)
· Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 a.m. until dusk, but no later than 8:00pm.
