Spring Break Travel Reminders

As we approach Spring Break, it’s important to remember that any out of state travel requires a 14 day quarantine period upon return OR a negative COVID test 72 hours after return to DC.    

As a gentle reminder to us as a community –  travel and quarantine could be hugely disruptive to our in person learning and virtual instructional models.  Given the very long road back to in person learning, I encourage you to think through how potential travel (and thus quarantine) could negatively impact your child’s attendance and learning.   Over the past year, we as a community have made it clear that we prioritize strong in person and virtual learning.  We don’t want to jeopardize the progress we have made so far in both our virtual and in person settings – and we’re all in this together. 

 

If you travel over spring break, you must email .  Ms. Beck will be keeping track of your student’s return date and quarantine dates.  As a reminder, according to the DCPS attendance policy, travel is an unexcused absence. 

For students in PK- 2nd grade who travel over spring break, they will be provided asynchronous work during their quarantine period.  They will not have virtual instruction available to them because we do not have a virtual setting for those students. 

For students in 3rd – 5th grade who travel over spring break, they will join their virtual counterparts during their quarantine period.

 

For planning purposes:  

Week of 4/5 – B Week

Week of 4/12 – Spring Break

Week of 4/19 – A Week
