As we teach math, science, reading, writing and more, we seek to build students who are reflective thinkers, problem solvers, and risk takers.

Despite the challenges and concerns this situation presents, we want to assure you that the DC Public Schools (DCPS) developed a solid plan to ensure that your child's education continues during a period of school closure.
