  • All families should plan to pick up a rapid test at school on Monday, Jan 4th from 1 pm – 4 pm OR Tuesday, Jan. 5th from 8:30 am – 4 pm. More details will be shared this weekend! As a reminder, there is no school for students on 1/3 and 1/4.


  • Everyone takes their rapid test on Tuesday January 4th and upload the results (https://dcps.dc.gov/safereturn) by 4 pm. **You may use your own test, but it has to be taken on January 4th and uploaded on January 4th**.


  • We all return to school on January 5th! Don’t forget those Ask, Ask, Look protocols!
