From the desk of the Chancellor:
December 19, 2017
As we prepare for the holiday break, I want to take a moment to wish you and your families a warm and happy holiday season. Our students, parents, families, educators, and partners have been working incredibly hard this school year, and I hope you all enjoy the chance to take a break with your loved ones!
We have a busy winter ahead of us at DC Public Schools, so before the holidays, I hope you’ll take a look at our upcoming Community Forums. My team and I hold these forums every month to hear your feedback on our district’s strategic priorities. I’ll be holding two forums on Tuesday, January 9 at LaSalle-Backus Education Campus in the morning, and Lafayette Elementary School in the evening. You can learn more about them on the DCPS website.
Now that DC is experiencing winter weather, I also encourage you to review how DCPS makes inclement weather decisions and communicates those decisions to our community.
Thank you for a wonderful school year so far, and enjoy your holiday break!
