End of Week 1 Reminders and Resources

We did it!!!!  Week 1 of ReOpen is complete and it was a very successful week!  The building felt amazing with sounds and smiles of teachers and students – whether they were in person or virtual.  Our kids are always incredible, and this week was no exception.  My hat also goes off to our teachers, both virtual and in person for taking everything in stride and loving and educating our students through this transition.  Countless hours of planning, practicing, and work have gone into our ReOpen….and it all paid off to see kids learning from one another in the building and at home.

A few reminders and resources:

If you travel out of the DMVyour child must quarantine for 14 days upon return, or have a negative COVID test 72 hours after returnThis is mandatory per DC Mayor Bowser.  (This includes ski and tubing day trips to PA and WV).  You have also agreed to this per your “Family Agreement for IPL” with DCPS (last bullet point).

Please help keep all of us safe and respect this quarantine period.  Failing to quarantine is unsafe and disrespectful to every family and staff member in the building.
