Select DC Public Schools Welcome Students Back

Select schools in the District are welcoming some students back this week for limited in-person learning as D.C. Public Schools looks ahead to reopening.

Ballou STAY opens Monday to those in cosmetology and barbering. More schools are expected to follow in the coming weeks and days. They include:

  • Bancroft ES
  • Cardozo EC
  • Eastern HS
  • Kimball ES
  • Kramer MS
  • Ludlow-Taylor ES
  • Mann ES
  • Noyes ES
  • Tyler ES
  • Phelps ACE HS
  • Roosevelt HS
  • Roosevelt STAY

The schools are opening for what D.C. called Student Support Center and Career and
Technical Education (CTE) programming.

Schools Chancellor Lewis Ferebee said at a news conference Monday that the centers will “serve about anywhere from 20 to 50 students a day. And the overall program could be anywhere between 20 to 100 students.”

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Monday that 29 recreation centers and six indoor pools will open to the public on Oct. 13. D.C. residents can start booking reservations for a 45-minute time slot at the listed facilities on Oct. 1. Face coverings and social distancing will be required.

Also in D.C., Ballou STAY became the first of 13 D.C. Public Schools sites to open up for small groups of in-person programming as a supplement to virtual learning.

D.C. also announced that due to the pandemic, residents will have to collect their own leaves this year. Residents will be given 20 paper bags or more to collect their leaves and deposit them outside for pickup.
