“Sick Out” Update – Monday, 11/2

The Mayor, DCPS and WTU continue to grapple with how to best return students to school.  Unfortunately, they have not yet reached an agreement in their negotiations.  I am anticipating that many of our teachers (over 30 so far) have taken a sick day today, Monday 11/2 in accordance with a “sick out”.   Please be sure to check your email and Canvas page to see if your child has live instruction available today.

All teachers who are absent have been instructed to be sure that students have access to asynchronous learning on Canvas and all families should be notified by email.  I deeply regret this loss of instruction for our students.  We all would have hoped that we could have avoided this situation.
