Since March 1, 2021, DC Public Schools have notified Twenty schools of at least one individual who was present at the school who reported a positive test for coronavirus (COVID-19). Four of those schools have had multiple positive test results according to letters sent out by DCPS to each school community and posted on the COVID-19 School Update page.
Each letter states, ". The individual is no longer on campus and will not return until medically cleared. Upon notification of the positive case, and out of an abundance of caution, the building was cleaned and disinfected, including classrooms, office areas, conference rooms, and other common areas."
Each impacted in-person classroom cohort must quarantine for 14 days, students in that classroom will transition to at-home, virtual learning for the time being. All other in-person programing at our building will continue as usual and persons who the school know were in close contact with any positive testing individual were "immediately notified and provided guidance based on DC Health & CDC guidelines".
The letter informs the school community that they do not need to be tested however they strongly suggest they closely monitor themselves and their family for symptoms of COVID-19.
