Dear SWWFS Community,
We’ve missed you! It is our hope that you are well and finding ways to keep cool during these very hot summer days.
On July 30, 2020, Chancellor Ferebee and Mayor Bowser announced that DCPS will start School Year 2020-2021 virtually with all students learning at home. This plan will last at least through Term 1 from August 31 to November 6. Our team is working hard to design structures and practices which prioritize safety, maximize learning, and provide equitable access to resources and supports. With that in mind, we have developed structured schedules that include interactive lessons and independent learning. Look forward to more detailed information in our upcoming welcome back newsletter.
DCPS will ensure that families have the technology resources necessary for a strong reopening in the fall. There is still time to complete the brief technology access survey to share your family’s device and internet access needs.
As additional support, DCPS will provide Parent University virtual workshops to help families focus on learning at home in the fall. You can RSVP at bit.ly/dcpsparentursvp.

Be Safe, Stay Healthy & Be Kind!
