Covid-19 Tests for ALL Students
We distributed COVID-19 at home antigen tests to all staff and students Friday. We expect everyone to report the test results to the District’s website on Sunday, February 27th. If we don’t have the results, we will test students Monday morning before they enter the building.
Classes start at 8:30 am, and we expect all students arrive by 8:30. If you bring your child after 9:00 am, we need a doctors’ note or a legitimate reason. If students arrive after breakfast or lunchtime, we expect them to have their breakfast or lunch before coming to school. Our teachers and staff cannot provide food service outside the designated times. If your children bring their lunch and arrive after lunchtime, they need to eat before entering the building. We will not allow them to eat during class time.
Student Intent to Return Form
It's almost re-enrollment season for the 2022-2023 school year. The official re-enrollment and DC residency verification will start on April 1, 2022. However, we need to know if your child(ren) will be returning next year so that we can reserve a spot for them. Please fill out and submit this form to the main office by March 4, 2022, to secure your child's spot for the 2022-2023 school year. We will contact you on or after April 1, 2022, to start the official re-enrollment of your child for the next school year.
