DCPS will start Virtually Aug. 31

This morning, Mayor Bowser and Deputy Mayor for Education Kihn made the announcement that DCPS will start school on August 31st in an all virtual format for the entirety of the first term (Aug. 31 – Nov 6).  Their announcement was made a day earlier than expected. 

 

Given that we now know how we will begin the school year on August 31st, I am shifting our parent meeting to Friday, 7/31 at 10 am.  The link is here:
