A handbook with great useful information will be available for families by the first day of school, look for it via email and on the school webpage.



Our school uniform is a collared yellow shirt with a dark/navy blue bottom or jumper. 

These can be purchased at: 

  • Kids for Less (at The Mall at Prince Georges)
  • Walmart
  • Forman Mills
  • JCPenney
  • Children's Place
  • Carters.com
  • Amazon.com (e.g. French Toast brand)

Students who arrive without a uniform will be provided one on loan from the school social worker.

Casual days will afford students the option to wear a JBES T-shirt instead of a collared shirt.


Public Transportation

Students who use Metrorail, Metrobus, and DC Circulator to get to school and school-related activities need to obtain a new KRF SmarTrip card at a summer distribution event or when the next school year starts. Beginning October 1, 2018, students will no longer be able to use their DC One Cards to access public transportation. The new card will be separate from students’ DC One Card and will provide students with free transportation to school and school-related activities. The new SmarTrip card will provide students with free and immediate access to travel on Metrobus, Metrorail, and DC Circulator. Check the DDOT page for more information on how to get your student a new KRF SmarTrip card!


More information will be available in the handbook, stay tuned!
